Kickapoo Creek Winery to close at end of 2021, citing COVID-19 decline

EDWARDS — Kickapoo Creek Winery is to close for good before the end of 2021, it was announced Thursday.

The coronavirus pandemic and its effects on business have been too much for Kickapoo Creek to overcome, according to Catie Doerr, the winery’s general manager.

“I think our company was based off (special) events. That’s the bread and butter of the company,” she told the Journal Star. “I think when COVID happened, that changed. We’re not getting events like we used to.”

No special events are to be held at Kickapoo Creek after Dec. 1, Doerr said. The tasting room and restaurant are scheduled to be open until Dec. 31, but Doerr said she expects remaining wine inventory to sell out well before then.
