Wheat State Wine Company began in 2008 when we planted our first vines in Owner/Wine Maker Chris Tyler’s family farm just southeast of Winfield, KS. With the goal of making the best wine in Kansas, we started making wine in 2011 with careful attention to detail and a methodic approach which helps us create exceptional quality control.
Since then our wines have won “Kansas Wine of the Year” honors in 2012 and several medals at national wine competitions. We are very proud of what we have achieved in such a short time, and look forward to even greater things ahead.
We grew up, live and work in Winfield, and have always considered it our home. We are active in the community – volunteering with the local Young Professionals club, donating to local causes and sponsoring local events. Here we treat people the way we would like to be treated, because those are the values we learned and continue to pass on.
We are a fully licensed and bonded winery with federal and state agencies. We sell direct to consumers in south-central Kansas, wholesale across Kansas and online to 35 states – Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Wyoming and D.C.
We offer free wine tastings and tours of the winery and vineyard. We encourage you to visit us and picnic on the grounds or enjoy our wine on the patio. We are located at 23622 Springhill Farm Dr near the Walnut River a few miles southeast of the city of Winfield. From Winfield, take US-77 S, turn left on Quail Ridge Dr, right on S Pike Rd, left on 212th Rd, over the Walnut River and you’re there! We’re open Friday – Sunday, 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. We look forward to seeing you.
