Winemaking

Winemaking in Southern Indiana

We make wines that capture the flavors of great fruit.

We believe winemaking is about bringing out the best qualities of delicious fruit. That's why we make wine in the gentlest way possible, showcasing ingredients by nurturing rather than interfering.

Our team crafts each wine in our portfolio with care and attention to detail. We believe all styles of wine deserve respect. Our wines are wines that everyone can enjoy, from classic varietals to crisp apple ciders and sweet experiments.

Creekbend Vineyard

Our hilltop vineyard in the Southern Indiana Uplands is a magical place where we grow unique grape varieties. Situated on the same latitude as California's Napa Valley, Creekbend Vineyard's hilltop location and limestone bedrock and soils are ideally suited for growing grapes.

Sourcing great fruit from the best growers

Fruit sourcing

Decades-old relationships with some of the wine industry's best growers play a critical role in crafting great wine. Their skills, expertise, and craftsmanship complement our fruit-forward winemaking philosophy. The best ingredients — blackberries, apples, classic vinifera grapes, orange-blossom honey — make the difference between average wines and your favorites. So we find the very best for each wine in our portfolio.

Quality wines, made simply. But simple is not easy.
