Morgan Creek Vineyards is a winery located at 181 Morgan Creek Lane in Harpersville. Winery owners Charles and Mary Brammer began commercially selling wine in 2000, after many years of producing it as a hobby.

The winery began on 30 acres with a production of 600 cases (7200 bottles), that sold in 6 stores. In 2009, the winery produced 15,000 cases, selling in 400 stores across Alabama and Mississippi, and expanded its acreage by 85 acres (Vickery)

Morgan Creek produces "Southern wines such as muscadine, blueberry and apple," (Wilkinson) and red wines (O'Hara). Its wine was included on the list of "100 Things to Eat in Alabama Before You Die." The vineyard hosts concerts and opens the farm to berry pickers during harvest season.

As a member of the Alabama Wineries and Grape Growers Association, Morgan Creek has been actively involved in efforts to relax some restrictions on wineries in Alabama, to better conform with laws in the rest of the United States (Sharp).
