Willow Creek Winery

.

Beautifully landscaped grounds, national music acts, chocolate wine and a new tasting room!

Debbie Metzger has always been the lady who enjoys throwing the parties. Now, as president of Willow Creek Winery, she has taken the concept to a whole new level. Willow Creek opened in 2000, when her brother Doug invested in the winery with his friend, winemaker Jim Emerson. When Jim unexpectedly passed away that same year, Doug, who worked in the engineering field, quit his job to focus on the winery full-time as president and general manager. Since then, Doug has retired and his sister, Debbie has taken the reigns.

A unique and wonderful experience at Willow Creek doesn’t end in the rustic tasting room. Outside there are 26 acres of fruit trees and bushes, vineyards, streams, wooded areas and a pond where visitors are welcome to pick and eat the organic fruit, fish, hike, or sit and relax with a glass of their favorite wine.

Willow Creek currently carries 18 varieties of wine, and they are always experimenting with new products. Here you’ll find Chocolate Wine, one of Willow Creek’s biggest sellers. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the atmosphere, down-home and welcoming. That’s why they say that at Willow Creek, you “come as a stranger, leave as a friend.”
