Dwight and Jean Anne Crevelt and Jean’s mother Irene Cassens are the owners of 7Cs Winery . Dwight & Jean Anne are originally from the Midwest and are returning to fulfill their dream of owning a winery and vineyard. Or to quote our oldest daughter, “Dream or mid-life Crisis, most people buy a sports car, but not you, you are going to open a winery”.
Dwight was born in Kansas City, Missouri and spent many summers growing up on his grandparents’ farm outside Walnut Grove. His dad James, was born in Jefferson City and his mother Louise, was born in Mountain Grove.
Jean Anne was born and raised in Sigourney, Iowa along with her parents Charles and Irene Cassens and several generations of their family.
Dwight and Jean Anne met at Iowa State University and moved to Las Vegas where Dwight has worked in the Gaming Industry for the past 37+ years.
They have raised 4 children (The 4 M’s) in Las Vegas, Michael, Michelle, Matthew and Megan.
Our future is to grow grapes and produce wine and mead. Jean Anne has taken classes with the Viticulture and Enology Science and Technology Alliance (VESTA-USA.org) through Missouri State Univ. to get her Certificate in Viticulture and Certificate in Enology.
