Castle Creek Winery is located 14 miles from downtown Moab up the Colorado River on scenic Hwy 128. We are situated overlooking the river's best white water rapids, at the foot of dramatic red rock cliffs. It's a classic, rugged Western landscape. The winery sits on a historic working ranch called Red Cliffs Adventure Lodge.
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, our winery has produced over 30 award-winning wines for your enjoyment. Castle Creek Winery currently produces over 8,000 combined cases of wine. Each bottle is filled, labeled, and boxed by hand on site.
Castle Creek’s lush, green vineyards are a standout among the sapphire sky, red rocks and mesas. In addition to our 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 winery's upper level features a 4,000+ square foot hospitality area and a huge adjacent deck overlooking the Colorado River. Reservations are accepted for seminars, private tastings and parties and weddings. Daily tours are offered and tasting is available.
