Apple Creek winery to debut in North Cape County

DBR Staff Writer Published 07 November 2012

Apple Creek Vineyard & Winery is all set to open its doors on 10 November 2012 in North Cape County, Missouri.

The winery is owned by Doug Hunt, Pat Hunt, Matt Gamel and Shellie Gamel. It will use grapes from its six acres of vineyards planted with six varieties of grapes in 2006.

Matt Gamel said the winery is ideally placed on the banks of Apple Creek downstream from Berkbigler Spring that flows throughout the year.

Located at 1930 County Road 401, Friedheim, the winery will share its opening with the Mississippi River Hills Wine Trail 'A Taste of the Holidays!' event, which is scheduled for 10-11 November 2012.

The Mississippi River Hills Wine Trail includes six local wineries in Southeast Missouri - The Barrens Winery in Perryville, Hemman Winery in Brazeau, Tower Rock Vineyard and Winery in Altenburg, Rothbrick Winery in Jackson, Hunter Valley Winery in Cape Girardeau and Apple Creek Winery in Friedheim.

Apple Creek Vineyard & Winery will host special events, weddings and groups and will also feature the Creek Bank Café that will be open only in the weekends.
