Carl had a vision when he purchased the picturesque Schreckengast Farm in 2002. He saw a classic venue for private events including special celebrations and business meetings. He later crafted a wine tasting bar and restaurant and, from there, the rest is history. Cedar Lake Cellars is a true reflection of Carl’s entrepreneurialism and love of nature.
