Whirlwind Winery LLC was founded in 2005 by Brad Stinson and Dan Rhea. Two friends who met while working on cruise ships traveling the world. After numerous tours in Europe and around the globe, these shipmates decided to start a winery after “sampling” wines in numerous ports of call. Originally located in Fay, the first batch of wines were produced in a small temporary building set just off the old Fay main street. In 2009 a fantastic opportunity allowed the winery to move to its current building on historic Watonga’s main street.

Early 2011 Don Molnar joined Whirlwind Winery. As a long time vineyard owner and wine grower, Don has been an unofficial part of the Whirlwind since the very first grape harvest. The winery is extremely fortunate to have Don and his family on board.

In 2012 Whirlwind Winery’s looks back on its brief history and is excited about the future as it continues to expand, continues to influence our industry and community, and most importantly is steadily improving the quality of our wines.

Whirlwind Winery is committed to producing fine wines, discovering Oklahoma Terroir, expanding culture in western Oklahoma, supporting value-added agriculture products, and encouraging Agri-tourism. We thank you, the curious novices, the dedicated wine drinkers, and the adventurous Oenophiles, for your passion and support.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
