Vineyards and wineries have sprung up all over Oklahoma due to the favorable weather and soil conditions, which produce wonderful grape harvests. Central Oklahoma, in particular, is home to a few popular wineries, so we dedicated an entire tour to scoping out some great places to relax and enjoy a glass of vino.
Our first stop for this winery tour was Tres Suenos Vineyard and Winery in Luther, just northeast of the Oklahoma City metro area. As you pull through the gate and onto the property you are greeted by beautiful vines winding around tightly stretched wire making them appear to float. Nestled in a tall gathering of pine trees directly in front of you is the wine tasting room and gathering hall.
Stepping through the front doors you catch a glimpse straight through the back doors and into a picture-perfect setting for a wedding or just a relaxing getaway with friends. Pine trees create a canopy above your head, and the lights that are strung from tree to tree make for a fairy tale scene. Sit on the balcony of the tasting room building, picnic under the pines, or enjoy a view over the vineyards on the opposite side of the building.
Tres Suenos offers a varied list of wines ranging from dry to sweet and they can accommodate any palate delightfully. This winery and vineyard comes highly recommended by our staff.
StableRidge Vineyards and Winery, on historic Route 66 in Stroud, was our second winery stop for the day. The tasting room and gift shop are located inside a quaint wooden structure that was built in 1898 to serve as the town’s Catholic church.
Jerimiah’s Red is just one of the many delicious wines StableRidge is known for in Oklahoma and on Route 66. Wine tastings are served with cheesecake to bring out the flavor of the wine. Tours of the vineyard and wine-making facility are available with advance notice. StableRidge is truly one of Oklahoma’s best kept secrets.
