Southern Wine Maker : Charles Brammer, Jr.

When you enjoy Morgan Creek wines, you’re savoring a piece of southern heritage. Under the guidance of Charles Brammer and his parents, Morgan Creek continues to expand in every aspect of the business; from the intricate details of wine growing to the distribution of their products.

Charles is proud to produce products that are truly native to the area. He strongly believes in the southern tradition of gathering around the table with friends and family. The Brammer family wines are originated from regional grapes and fruits that support southern farmers.  The wines vary in finish from dry to sweet.

Charles is hands on with the entire process…from start to finish.
