After growing wine grapes for 20+ years we decided to open our own winery. Steppe Cellars opened in 2005. It is a partnership between two sisters and their husbands.
It is a venture that would not have been possible without the help and support of our friends and family. Each partner also brings diverse experience and perspectives to this growing family business.
