It has always been a dream to have a winery and live the Italian heritage through wine making. As a young boy, Doug would help an Italian lady grind grapes and stir the barrel while she made wine. Her inspiration, and the Italian heritage of his mother, kept our drive to someday serve wine to the neighboring community where we have lived all our lives. We have engaged in many wine adventures, traveling to several wineries throughout the country, and reeled in a great deal of knowledge from The Finger Lakes, in New York.
We took things from each winery that we liked and used our own special touch as well. We have a warm inviting tasting room and atmosphere, as well as a designated area in the back where we make the wine. The ingredients; grapes, juices, fruit and other products used in the wine are obtained from Wabash Valley growers as well. We get our grapes from the Little Vermillion Vineyard, in Cayuga Indiana, owned by the Wesch family. Our winery offers many different varieties, including dry, semi-dry, semi-sweet, and sweet wines. It also offers both red and white wines. What makes us different is we put our own personal spin on the building and on the wine. We built the structure that houses the winery; we created our own recipes, and brainstormed all the labels. Every label has a story that we share with your wine tasting experience. In addition to wine, we sell other items; including T-shirts, pastas, soup mixes, dip mixes, sauces and candy. The facility can also be rented for events and we have monthly events; such as "Sips & Strokes" (our version of wine and canvas), acoustic night, and weather permitting, we have outdoor events and a place for you to sit and relax while you enjoy your wine and spend time with family and friends.
