Happy 7th Anniversary Week

While Monday, October 10th, was the actual 7th year Anniversary of Bent Oak Winery's Tasting Room Opening, we decided to celebrate all week!   The business officially opened in early 2014 (April to be exact -  as we had to make the wine) but wow we have come a long way, baby!  We have grown over the years in terms of us understanding the business, our wine production, wine club growth, and awards we have received.  All of this is simply something we could not do without an appreciative, wonderful base of customers (and family and friends) supporting us along the way!


Please join in on the celebration with all of the specials we have listed below.  But don't forget to check out all the events below the weekly specials!


Quite a few folks have been wondering when we were bringing back soup now that fall is here.  Bryan is cooking up his famous Chipotle Pumpkin to kick off the soup season!
