Dr. David Conner, now a retired Orthopedic Surgeon, purchased the 250 acres back in the 1980's. It was a thoroughbred horse farm at the time. Dr. Conner turned it into a cattle farm until he got tired of chasing cows around. In the early 1990's, he sold the cows and started Conner Nursery & Gardens. Here they specialized in growing Hosta plants.
In 2001, Dr. Conner planted his first crop of grapes and opened Kickapoo Creek Winery shortly after.
Owned by Dr. David Conner and operated by his son, Executive Director, Rory Conner and daughter-in-law, Mary Conner.
Our vineyards expanding just over 14 acres. We focus on handcrafting wine in small batches from locally sourced grapes and grapes grown right here in our own vineyards.
In 2005, the winery was expanded to include a banquet facility and a catering company, Kickapoo Creek Catering.
You can taste the delicious wine and the tasty food from Kickapoo Creek Catering daily in the Tasting Room.
