MG Conference

June 15: Thursday Evening Social

Location:  Tidewater Winery, 54560 W. Hwy. 16, E0727 Road, Drumright, OK 74030

Our hosts, the Creek County Master Gardeners, have planned a wonderful evening on Thursday, June 15, An Evening Social at the Tidewater Winery for those who would like to come early and enjoy the company of other MG’s while having a California wine experience right here in Oklahoma!

Located 2 miles south of Drumright is the spacious historic brick schoolhouse that is now home to Tidewater winery. This 8,000 square-foot facility, built by David Rockefeller in the late 20s and early 30s, is on both the state and national registers of historical places!

Visitors will be offered free tastings of the various wines produced there and a guided tour of the elegant old building. Perhaps you would prefer to sit on the large decks out back overlooking one of the winery’s two vineyards.  

For shoppers, the tasting room is complete with plenty of items for purchase, or perhaps you would prefer to browse at Sugar Plum Tea Room Antiques or The Tough Nickel. The world class collection of oil and gas memorabilia will be available for a tour at the Drumright Historical Museum. Or, you may want to enjoy the large collection of murals on various buildings. A sheet with information and locations will be provided.  

For a truly memorable experience, dinner at the winery is being offered that evening! The menu includes chicken or beef kabobs served on a bed of seasoned rice, various salads, Joseph’s signature tabouli, and dessert with tea or coffee. Dinner is optional for $15.00; must pay at the time of registration. Wine available for purchase with dinner. For a truly wonderful experience, come early and enjoy a bit of Oklahoma history!
