Established in 2013, Holtkamp Winery is a family owned, boutique winery offering a variety of wines to suit many tastes. Doug Holtkamp started making wine in 2002 stemming from his love and enjoyment of drinking wine with friends and family. This continued passion led him to start his own winery. By teaming up with Jeff McCann, who has over 35 years in the winemaking and grape growing industry, they combine their knowledge and experience to create a great quality and selection of handcrafted wines.
Bringing in 7 different grape varieties from California, as well as estate grown grapes, Doug and Jeff make a great selection of wines ranging from dry, semi-dry red and white wines, to sweet fruit wines and dessert wines. Today we are growing 16 varietals and plan to increase that number in the future.
We invite you to come visit our tasting room located in Dearborn County and try one of our award winning wines!
