Gary Strebel, a practicing OB/Gyn physician, has been a hobby winemaker for over ten years. Then in July of 2007 he was licensed commercially to produce and sell to the public.
Wines in the Strebel Creek Vineyard include Zinfandel, Merlot, Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, Sangiovese, Syrah, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, and Viognier. Prices range from $9.99 to $15.99.
Gary’s wife, Sherry, runs the gift shop. They renovated their 100 year old barn into a winery and gift shop. Commuters on North MacArthur may remember the llamas and the angora goats as they grazed near the fence. StrebelCreek Vineyard & Gift Shop is located at 11521 N MacArthur Boulevard, in northwest Oklahoma City, about halfway between Hefner Road and 122nd Street, on the west side of the street.
