Gunpowder Creek Winery
If you're lucky, your work is play. Named for a Connecticut Revolutionary War stream where I grew up playing in with my best friends, Gunpowder Creek is the creative home now of wines of my style.
With its first 2015 vintage wine off Phinny Hill Vineyard, you've arrived at the launchpad.
