I heart trails. It honestly doesn’t matter what kind: antique trails, fairy trails, even hiking trails, but I want to tell you about a new trail I just heard about: the Heartland Wine and Ale Trail. If you haven’t been to Richmond/Wayne County on the eastern part of the state, a visit is necessary. Not only are they home to this new trail, but they have ALL of the other trails I mentioned above. Amazing, right?
But, let’s get back to this wine and ale trail … This trail spotlights the flavor of local wineries and breweries located in Eastern Indiana as well as a few in Western Ohio. With a total of nine stops along the trail, each one offers a distinctive atmosphere and personalized service for both wine and ale enthusiasts. And an added note worth mentioning – all sites are family-owned and are small production enterprises where tasting means talking DIRECTLY with the owner, winemaker or brewmaster. Stops include:
- Tonne Winery, Muncie, IN
- Heorot Pub & Draught House, Muncie, IN
- Wilson Winery, Modoc, IN
- New Boswell Brewery/Tap Room, Richmond, IN
- J & J Winery, Richmond, IN
- Noble Order Brewing Company, Richmond, IN
- Norris English Pub, Liberty, IN
- Kennedy Vineyard, New Madison, OH
- The Winery at Versailles, Versailles, OH
The Heartland Wine and Ale Trail … a great way to see the area and sample and learn about local wine and brew. Win/Win!
