Spring temperatures are finally returning, just in time for the 8th annual Indiana Wine Trail “Spring into the Valley”, April 15th! The Trail partners, Ertel Cellars Winery and Restaurant, Lanthier Winery, Madison Vineyards Estate Winery, The Ridge Winery, Stream Cliff Farm Winery, The Thomas Family Winery , and newest addition Holtkamp Winery welcome guests, experienced trailers and first-timers, to come taste their wines and celebrate the classic combination of breads and cheeses.
All the Indiana Wine Trail Partners will have a signature accent to the spring theme. Here are a couple of the treats to tempt you. Madison Vineyards will have wine bread and cheese spread along with chocolate bread paired with wine. They’ll also have special wine discounts in celebration of the spring that we’ve been not so patiently awaiting . Madison Vineyards will have grape vine cuttings from several of their wine grape varieties. Maybe you can start your own grape arbor!
The Thomas Family Winery will feature several fruit-based cheeses from Wales and Kentucky, and rich, dark breads to enjoy them with! Also, the winery will release two new white wines for spring!
“Trailers” should venture out to see the surprises offered by the other trail partners! Hours for the event are 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. Please check each winery’s web site for more detailed information.
The Indiana Wine Trail consists of seven wineries-Thomas Family Winery, Lanthier Winery, Madison Vineyards, Ertel Cellars, Stream Cliff Farm Winery , The Ridge Winery and Holtkamp Winery- who have joined together to create a fun wine trail along and around the beautiful Ohio River Scenic Byway. Encompassing everything from secluded estate vineyards to historic pub-style bistros, the Indiana Wine Trail brings together the region’s best, each offering a different take on one of the state’s fastest-growing agricultural products: handcrafted Indiana wine.
