Sip or Spill Wine Review: Castle Creek Petroglyph White
Updated: Jun 3, 2019
About Castle Creek Winery:
The History of Wineries in Utah began based on successful test plantings in the 1970s. Not surprisingly, the climate in the Moab area is quite hot during summer days, but elevations in most of the growing areas are over 4,000 feet, offering cool nights. The dry climate of Moab is optimum for growing healthy grapes, excellent for producing a variety of fruit, including
Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. Using locally grown grapes, the Castle Creek Winery has produced over 30 award-winning wines for your enjoyment. They currently produce over 8,000 combined cases of wine. Each bottle is filled, labeled, and boxed by hand on site. We admire the personal local touch.
Castle Creek’s lush, green vineyards are a standout among the sapphire sky, red rocks and mesas. In addition to Castle Creek's own vineyards in Castle Valley, Moab and Monticello and Spanish Valley additional fruit for the wines is sourced from growers in the area. Castle Creek wines typically made from a single vintage rather than blended from multiple ones.
Adding a decidedly civilized tone to the Wild West, Castle Creek Winery, the largest in Utah, offers daily wine tasting. The tasting room is large and inviting – the length of the bar is likely to guarantee there will be room for you, even in our busiest times.
The Wine Moms gave this wine a Sip Sip Sip in the on air wine review. Even Carly who typically is red all the way. If you are in the area this summer or wanting to make a trip to beautiful southern Utah make sure to check out the wines for yourself.
