UPSHUR COUNTY, Texas (KLTV) - An East Texas winery holds it’s grand opening, with lots of attractions to offer, in the hopes of becoming a vacation destination for the state of Texas.

If you’ve travelled along highway 300 between Gilmer and Longview, you’ve probably seen the wine barrels sitting out front of the ‘Rowdy Creek Ranch’ gates.

This weekend they held a ribbon cutting ceremony officially opening their 450 acre facility with numerous attractions.

Not only growing grapes and producing their own wines, but offering fishing, glamping, hiking trails, and a full service restaurant.

“It’s really open for all of this East Texas area. And that’s what we want to do, we want to make it friendly, we want to make it casual, we want everybody to come out here and have a good time. That’s what we’re here for,” says owner Debra Bolnick.

“Certainly a labour of love and we have started it from the ground up. And have been super appreciative to everyone in the community, all of the patrons that have started with us from the beginning till now, and we’re super excited to show everyone what Rowdy Creek is about,” says staff member Cameron Stoudt.

Rowdy Creek Ranch also has live music on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
