‘Tis the season to eat, drink and be merry–all of which you can do during a visit to Winzerwald Winery this holiday season.
You may think that a stop at a winery is only for the most serious of wine enthusiasts. If you’re new to the joy of wine, know nothing about winemaking, or just want to take in the beauty of acres of grapes in the heart of the Hoosier National Forest, then consider a tour of Winzerwald Winery. I like to think of it as a winery with a sense of humor. They sell wine in Christmas tree-shaped bottles during the holiday season, if you need proof of that! In fact, they describe themselves as a “friendly little winery at the top of the hill in southern Indiana.”
Wines from Winzerwald have a strong German influence. Dan and Donna Adams, the owners of Winzerwald Winery, both come from German wine-making families. The winery’s location in the Hoosier National Forest reminded many early German settlers in southern Indiana of the Black Forest. Some of Winzerwald’s award-winning wines are made from what is rumored to be a grape brought over from Germany by Dan’s ancestors. This variety of grape has yet to be identified by viticulture experts. So if you’re looking for a truly unique gift for that tough-t0-buy-for relative, this might be your answer.
Winzerwald Winery is located in Bristow, Indiana and sells a variety of reds, whites, blushes, fruit blends and specialty wines. You can order online or attend one of their many special events held each month. The winery is open for tours Tuesday-Sunday by appointment.
