Pecan Creek Winery of Muskogee was awarded a Bronze medal for its Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 to the San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition.

The Chronicle contest is one of the world’s largest wine competitions and includes wines from every major wine region in the world. This marks the first time an Oklahoma-grown wine has won an award at the prestigious San Francisco competition. The contest division for Cabernet Sauvignon in the $23-$28 per bottle awarded forty medals making Pecan Creek Winery’s entry one of the top forty wines of that price range in the world.

The contest judged more than 7,000 entries. Pecan Creek’s winemaker and co-owner, Bob Wickizer, said he was “Extremely proud of our vineyard and cellar teams who are showing the world that we can produce some outstanding wines right here in our own state.”

The estate-grown wine came from vines planted around the winery itself. Hand-picked and destemmed, the wine was made “old-school style” from beginning to end. Aged one year in Hungarian oak barrels, the cab displays strong varietal characteristics without the overwhelming high alcohol and fruity character often found in other cabs today

Pecan Creek Winery, LLC. is a four-year old, 1,200 case-per-year winery based in Muskogee. Using only locally-grown grapes, the winery produces dry table wines and a line of classic premium, single varietal wines.
