This week we are featuring Table Mountain Vineyards from Huntley, Wyoming

Patrick Zimmerer, Huntley, WY



Table Mtn Vineyards (or TMV) started growing grapes in 2001 and began producing wines in 2004.  The winery was inspired through owner Patrick Zimmerer’s Senior Thesis project while at the University of Wyoming.  Patrick and his sister, Amie later competed in the University of Wyoming 10K Business Plan competition — they won first prize along with seed money to start the project.

Table Mountain Vineyards is Wyoming’s largest vineyard and winery – producing 100% Wyoming grown and made wines.  The vines are a cross of wild and wine grapes in order to survive Wyoming’s climate.  While the grapes are a bit different than traditional varieties, the winery is able to grow and produce its product from vine to wine in Wyoming.  The winery processes anywhere from 20-40 tons of grapes per year.

Additionally, the winery has just finished construction of its new winery facility featuring a grand room for large groups, event hosting and functions.  The tasting room is located just a few miles from Huntley, WY – (around 80 miles NE of Cheyenne on HWY 85).  The winery is currently open by appointment during its harvest season.

The winery will be featured later this fall on “America’s Heartland” on RFDTV and PBS stations across the US as part of a segment featuring Wyoming agriculture.

The wines typically retail around $15 per bottle.  The winery produces 10-14 varieties of grape and fruit wines.  All the wines are “Farm to Table Wines” meaning the fruit is sourced from local vineyards and fruit growers in Wyoming.   The winery produces wines with truly “Wyoming Character” and Spirit such as Cowboy Reserve, Rooster Red, S.O.B. Raspberry Wine, Stampede White, and many more. Its most unique wine is Wyoming Nectar – a honey wine w/Cinnamon. The wine style is traditionally known as Mead – one of the oldest fermented beverages in the world and is made from local beehives in the area.

TMV Wines are located in over 70 retail outlets in Wyoming, sold through its tasting room in rural Goshen County near Huntley, and direct shipped to various states & WY through its website WyoWine.com. TMV is a proud sponsor of many events and organizations throughout the year – you can find their wines this week at the Wyoming Women’s Expo in Casper and the Saint Mary’s Wine tasting this November in Cheyenne.

TMV Winery Offers Custom Labels for weddings, reunions, and special events. We’re also thrilled that Patrick writes in every issue of our Wyoming Lifestyle Magazine — and we featured an article on Table Mountain Vineyards in our first issue of Wyovore, our bookstore-exclusive publication!

The winery currently is open by appointment – visit WyoWine.com for more information or contact the winery at 307-459-0233
