Before it was Cunningham Creek Winery at Middle Fork Farm, it was the Bragg Farm for over a hundred years. Instead of fields with grapes, strawberries, pumpkins, and goats, there were fields of cows and hay. Then in 2011, Bruce and Debby “retired” and literally bought the farm. They joined forces with long-time friends, Rick and Sara, and together gave the beautiful rolling land new life.

 

The first year and a half was dedicated to cleaning up, planning, and preparing for what was to come. In 2013, we planted our first vines, acquired our initial goat herd, and planted our first strawberry field.

 

Today Cunningham Creek Winery at Middle Fork Farm is once again a vibrant working farm. We have eleven acres of Chardonnay, Viognier, Pinot Gris, Cab Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, a couple acres of strawberries and pumpkins, 30+ Kiko-Boer goats, and two very busy and happy families.
