About Us

Our Story

 

Irene's Vineyard and Winery is locally owned and operated by the Boldrey Family at their secluded countryside home nestled along the North Fork Creek.  Wayne and Irene moved to their home in 1958 where they raised their 4 children at this beautiful countryside place, we now call Irene's Vineyard.  Although they have both passed now our family still carries on the traditions of family, food, fun and wine!  We welcome you to make yourselves at home and enjoy this beautiful place we proudly call home.


Robert Boldrey

Robert is the co-owner and driving force in the behind the scenes operations. While everyone has a hand in operations, he has day to day responsibilities in the overall running of the vineyard and winery.


Tiffany Boldrey

Tiffany is co-owner and assists in all aspects of the operations.  She has 28 years of experience of being a business owner. Her love of gardening and working outdoors is a welcome addition in the vineyard.


Chelsea Nye

Chelsea is the daughter of Robert and Tiffany.  She is a mother of 2 daughters and married to Mitchell Nye.  While we all have a hand in all the operations of the vineyard and winery, Chelsea loves entertainment and helps take care of the event planning and advertising along with tending to the vineyards.


Nick Boldrey

Nicholas is the son of Robert and Tiffany. He had a hand in the initial start of the vineyards and berries that grow on the property. While he doesn't have a direct day to day job at the vineyard, he is a valued resource on new techniques, vineyard care and craft beer selections for the business. 

Our Land

We currently have about 2 acres, at our winery in Oblong, of producing vines with 7 different varieties.  We have recently purchased another 2 acres connected to our property.  Which we plan to add more vines in the upcoming year.

Our Wines

At Irene's we go above and beyond to produce quality wine that our customers will love and enjoy.  We currently offer 10 wines ranging from dry, semi-sweet, sweet and fruit. One of our  most popular wines is White Trash, this wine is well know for it's elegant name but also it's fruity aroma and pleasantly smooth and sweet taste.
