' Rusty Tractor Vineyards - Our Story

Our Story

Our passion for wine drives everything we do! In the summer of 2011 Doug and Sheree Meyer, the owners of Rusty Tractor Vineyards and Sunset Lodge, planted 200 Muscadines on a one-acre field. Upon seeing the ancient beauty of the vineyard in our own backyard, and the bounty of fruit our Muscadines produced, we were influenced to expand our grape plantings. After years of planning and cultivation, an additional 5,000 vines of multiple grape varietals were added to the property in the fields across from McHenry Creek. The romance of the vine is what inspired us to bring you Rusty Tractor Vineyards.

The Tasting Room offers a huge selection of wines and light fare. The Sunroom addition made to this building holds breathtaking views of the vineyard and is perfect for any event you can dream up! The property has a long history of agriculture, as seen in The Barrel Room. This 100 year old dairy barn was renovated into an ideal setting for intimate gatherings of up to 50 people. The covered patio associated with this space will awe you with its spectacular view of our immaculately manicured vineyard rows. Whether you are looking to taste wine, host a 50th anniversary party, get married, get engaged, hold a business meeting, or anything in between, Rusty Tractor Vineyards is perfectly suited for all of Central Arkansas’ needs! Please give us a call if you have any questions.
