I am happy to announce that Turtle Creek has a new sales manager and, if you are one of the retail stores who carry our wines, you probably already have made her acquaintance. Marcia MacIntyre comes with an extensive background as a professional taster and educator, with a long history in sales. We are delighted to have her association and skills in evangelizing Turtle Creek wines.

Those of you who have visited us at one of the many farmers markets we participate in will well - remember Sheryl & Jing Li as representatives of Turtle Creek. We will miss them greatly. Jing has been / will soon be promoted to Major in the US Air Force and they have been transferred to Florida. Sad as this is, the circumstance has been brightened by the addition of Robin Robak who will be coming on board this season and you will see her enthusiastic spirit at several of our markets.

Turtle Creek Wine-Shares are very popular. This is a great way to insure you have a selection of Turtle Creek wines spread over a year or more. Wine subscribers enjoy many related benefits. Click on the WINE-SHARES header above for more information.

We are participating in about eight farmers markets, some every week, others less frequently. To check the schedule and times where we will be, click on the link below for our farmers' market calendar. Please come and taste our wines at a local farmers' market!

Turtle Creek Farmers' Market Calendar

While we have no visitor center or tasting room, we do offer regularly scheduled wine tastings & tours. Both are led by the winemaker and emphasize the science and art in viticulture & wine making.

Tours & tastings are now scheduled on both Saturdays & Sundays in the afternoon and posted here under TOURS & TASTINGS in the header above. Reservations for either option are required.

Now, you can choose any scheduled date and make a reservation for either a TASTING, which lasts about one hour, takes place in our underground barrel room., or the FULL-TOUR which lasts about two hours, begins with a tour of the vineyard near the winery, followed by a visit to the fermentation room and lab. It also includes the TASTING.

Please go to the menu header above entitled "TOURS & TASTINGS" to see the schedule and make a reservation; it's easy!

Finally, we have added a link to offer on-line, direct ordering of all our wines which are currently available. You will find this link under the header above titled "OUR WINES".
