Hours: Year Round
The most wonderful thing about Flickerwood Wine Cellars is that it is an entirely family built and operated business, with all members of Ron & Sue Zampogna's immediate family playing major roles.
Ron has been an amateur winemaker for over 30 years, perfecting several blends of wine from Native American and French hybrid grapes. He feels winemaking is part of his Italian heritage that should be continued and passed along to future Zampogna generations. The natural skill and knowledge that he possesses is very evident to everyone who has sampled his wine.
After retiring from the U.S. Forest Service in December of 1998, with 36 years of service, he has begun a second career as winemaker and manager at Flickerwood Wine Cellars.
Located on property that fronts the home of Rick & Sharon Zampogna, construction started on the winery at the end of October, 1999. Ron and Sue's two son's Rick and Tim, both first class carpenters, spent the winter building the winery. The wine cellar is 12 feet high and holds a variety of size tanks that ferment and store the wine until it is ready for bottling. As soon as they could close in the wine cellar, and pass all the inspections, the first vintage of juice was put into the tanks. While the wine making process was taking place all winter, the rest of the facility was built around the wine cellar.
Located in a beautiful country setting, the winery gift shop and wine tasting area are warm, welcoming, and inviting to those who enter the front door, including the physically challenged. Decorated with knotty pine walls, cathedral ceilings, a grape motif, and using burgundy and forest green to accent the areas, the Zampognas' want everyone to feel at ease and at home. The beautiful hand crafted wine tasting bar will make the experience of tasting wine an enjoyable one. After opening the winery with four varieties of wine, we now have 21 delicious Flickerwood Wine Cellars Wine to offer our customers, including sweet, semi-sweet, semi-dry and dry table wines, in reds, whites & blushes.
