Wyldewood Cellars produces over 45 types of Kansas wine. What began in 1994 as a small elderberry winery has blossomed into an internationally recognized and awarded winery. We’ve won over 500 international awards for our elderberry wines and grape wines, as well as our other Kansas fruit wines.
As Wyldewood Cellars climbed the ladder of recognition, our winemaker and owner Dr. John Brewer was asked to become a judge at international wine competitions. For many years he was the only international wine judge from the area.
The 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah served our Spiced Elderberry Wine, which was named Best Non-Grape Wine in North and Latin America, and has won many other gold medals. Made from a sweet elderberry wine, cinnamon and cloves, it makes a delicious treat warmed on a cold night or as the perfect holiday wine for entertaining and gift giving.
As a family owned and operated business, we at Wyldewood Cellars are very proud of our accomplishments. With every bottle of Kansas wine we produce, we hope that the pride we take in creating our wine shines through to you, our most valued customers.
“We make wines that tastes good!” That’s our motto. Wine is a food, and should be delicious.

It won’t take long for you to realize that we do things a little bit differently around here. We refuse to accept that wine must taste of grass, tobacco, or dirt. Around here we like our wine like we like our women and ice tea…sweet! We don’t mess around when it comes to wine either, just check out the over 50 awards and medals we’ve won in our first four years!
All talk and no walk you say? Well pony up to our tasting bar and we will let our stunning selection of highly enjoyable libations walk all over your taste buds. Relish in pure unadulterated pleasure without worrying about how your swirling the glass. Sit back, Sip, Enjoy, Relax, Repeat…responsibly of course.
The winery is where the magic happens. All of our wines are made right here in house, just steps from the beach, where you’ll find the most unique winery on earth. Beach real estate isn’t cheap, s0 we squeeze a lot of wine out of a small space: about 900 square feet! We use three 2,000-liter jacket fermentation tanks and nine 2,000-liter racking and aging tanks. Filtering is handled by our 40-plate plate & frame filter, and all the bottling is done by hand right in the front window.
It’s not a lot of room, but it’s enough for us to create the most amazing libations known to man.
