The Lucas Brothers’ Honker Hill Winery is a family-owned winery and vineyard. In 1980, the family purchased 90 acres of land and developed an award-winning and highly recognized private hunting wildlife club. In 2004 the vineyard became established. The winery was later built in 2008, in order to hand process the grapes. In November 2009, the winery officially opened to the public. Over the years, they have become a primary destination for local and regional wine lovers that want to relax in a family-friendly environment.
