Up The Creek Winery

932 Norris Branch Rd
Burkesville, KY 42717


Open: Year-Round

In the fall of 2002, two Brothers purchased 300+ acres in a Cumberland County, Kentucky valley known as Possum Hollow.  The farm had been used for growing tobacco since the start of prohibition during 1920.  Stories echo that every acre in the hollows, level enough to work became planted in tobacco.  Friends and relatives of the farm still remember two red mules named Luke and Red cultivating the fields.  During harvest, the barn filled from floor to ceiling with tobacco, drying.

In those early days, folks drove one mile in, up the only hard surface, Norris Branch Creek bed to reach the Old Farmhouse in Possum Hollow.  If one takes time to listen in Possum Hollow, the winds whisper messages to mindful souls.

During the spring seasons of 2003 and 2004, we planted our vineyards for Up the Creek Winery.  Construction of the Small Farm Winery began during the summer of 2005.  During the fall of 2006, we harvested our first grapes.
