Chateau Thomas Is The Real Deal

Growing up in a family that has a passion for wine I have always had an appreciation for vino. Not surprisingly, my love for wine was sealed with my phenomenal experience at Chateau Thomas Winery in Plainfield, Indiana. Just off the interstate outside of Indianapolis, this French-inspired winery meshed the perfect amount of sophistication with European countryside causing even the least wine-savvy people to fall in love with the wineryís quaint charm.

Dr. Charles Thomas, Chateau Thomas owner, an Indiana Artisan, has gone above and beyond for his Indiana winery, showing that it can compete with the head honchoes of American wine in California’s Napa Valley. He has created an innovative niche product known as Slender Wines. This wine is naturally sweetened (so no added sugar), has no carbs, fat, or bad aftertaste! Slender Wines include white, blush, and red making this unique option available to all types of wine drinkers. Canít get much better than that now can you? The Slender Wines were selected for celebrity gift baskets for the 81st Academy Awards spreading the word of Indianaís Chateau Thomas all over the nation.

Aside from the Slender Wines line, Chateau Thomas offers a wide range of wines (53 to be exact) from the full-bodied Cabernet Franc to the top selling Sweet Aubergine. The wine I tasted was divine. When I left I instantly wanted to tell all of the wine lovers in my life that visiting Chateau Thomas was a must!

Bottles from this fantastic winery range from $10.99 to $45.00. Wine clubs, private labels, tastings, and custom ordered baskets are all amazing services that Dr. Thomas offers his customers. The winery has 45 employees, two chefs, and several lovely banquet halls with a view of the production room making it the choice spot for any occasion.

With tasting rooms in Nashville and Fishers, Indiana, Chateau Thomas wine can be enjoyed throughout the state of Indiana and easily ordered online, making the Chateau Thomas experience accessible to everyone. I donít know if it was the adorable patio or the amazing customer service but I instantly fell in love with everything about this operation. Chateau Thomas is the real deal ladies and gentleman. Give it a try! (If you are 21).
