Misty Creek Vineyard
Marge, Kathy and Barry Nichols purchased their 56 acre estate in 2000 and planted fruit trees and 14 acres of French vinifera and French-American hybrid grapes. Our varietals include Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Chambourcin. We opened our tasting room in July 2009 and expect our winery to be completed by 2012. Marge, who at 87 years old is the glue that holds our family together, is a highly accomplished ceramicist and gifted artist in oils and acrylics whose works have shown in numerous galleries and juried competitions.
Kathy is a teacher of over 30 years, and descends from a family that moved from England to Merritt Island, Florida just after the civil war and helped start the well known Indian River Citrus industry. Barry, retired as a Chief Information Officer and industry consultant, spent 33 years at the Kennedy Space Center and was with the team that put a man on the moon during the Apollo program. Marge and Barry’s roots in North Carolina go deep with 13 generations of family.
