Winery

After harvesting by hand by family and staff, grapes are delivered to the crush pad where they are sorted, de-stemmed, and pressed on their way from fruit to juice. The juice or must is then pumped into fermentation tanks or food-grade macro bins, depending on the specific wine being made. 

Once in tanks, the wine is carefully tended and maintained. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is allowed to settle before it is racked from one tank to another to separate and clean out sediment. The process is done over and again until the wine is clear and ready for filtering. After filtering the wine, it is either cold stabilized or put into barrels for aging. Then, before it goes through our bottling line, the wine is filtered again through a sterile membrane filter to remove any remaining microbes  to ensure the highest quality wine possible. West Sandy Creek Winery’s capacity is currently more than 15,000 gallons of tank space in our 10,000 square foot production area.

Adjacent to the production area is the nearly 3,000 square foot tasting room and wine bar and a 3,000 square foot patio offering views of the vineyards and the host of animals that call the ranch home.  The tasting room and wine bar features the wood craftsmanship evident throughout the property in the cabins and other spaces, as well as abundant, comfortable seating. You can rent the tasting room for private events as it is the perfect spot for any type of function.

Our tasting room is open Thursday – Sunday from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. We offer wine tastings and flights, cheese plates for two, four, or six people, as well as soft drinks and bottled water. You are welcome to bring a picnic if you’d like a bigger meal. Families are welcome and our younger guests enjoy seeing Joey the camel, the ranch dogs, and all of our animals. Feel free to email us at info@WSCWinery.com or message us on Facebook if you have questions.

On the first Friday of every month, we convert our tasting room to an elegant dining space for A Taste of WSCW, a dinner pairing a four-course meal with our award-winning wines. We begin with appetizers on the patio, and move indoors for salad, an entree, and a dessert. Each course is paired with a wine that enhances the flavors of the food and the wine. Tickets must be purchased in advance; visit our Eventbrite page to get yours.
