New World Vines Make Old World Wines

Crooked Post Winery is a unique Kansas Winery inspired by Italian architecture and style of wine. The Vineyard has 3,700 vines and the Winery has 1,500 vines.

Our wine is made true to the flavor of the grape it comes from, crafted by hand, and not manipulated to taste like any other wine.

We use our own grown French-American hybrid grapes that are suitable for the Kansas climate in all our wines. We use as little as possible any chemical compound both in the wine making and grape growing process.

Our Family to Yours

Cheers to Changes!
Hi! Let me introduce ourselves, Vance and Jennifer Kutch. We purchased this winery over the summer of 2022 and are excited about our new adventure. You will see a lot of new faces and some familiar ones too.

Jennifer grew up in North Topeka, moved to work for Lockheed Martin in 1997 where she met Vance, who grew up in Northern California. Vance was in the USAF before joining Lockheed Martin in 1996. Together they moved to Colorado and spent 20 years there. For their retirement jobs, they decided to try something different to both of them and take them out of their comfort zones!

Please stop by and meet Jennifer and Vance, have some wine and chat.

Our Wines

Making quality wines that celebrate our Midwest Regional landscape
We grow Hybrid Wine Grapes that are bred to grow well in the Kansas Midwest Region and survive the extreme heat and cold to make high quality wine. We presently have Traminette, Seyval Blanc, Noiret, Cayuga White, Valvin Muscat, Concord, Vignoles, St. Vincent, Cabernet Franc and Edelweiss.

After five years of selling our pesticide free and hand picked grapes to Kansas wineries in our area to promote Kansas Travel & Tourism, we opened up our own Kansas Winery in the spring of 2014. Our 3,600 square feet Italian-style building built in the summer of 2013 near Lake Perry has a tasting room and large event room that we use for special dinners, events and first and foremost, for our customers who want to stay awhile. Harvest parties start in mid-August to late September with lunch, wine tasting, tours and help with the crush.

Crooked Events

Music, wine and cheese. Shopping, painting classes, summertime events and special dinners.
Our goal is to keep it quaint and special, all the time
