Need a unique holiday gift for someone special or a great story to tell at the Thanksgiving Day dinner table this year? Why not tell your guests about your own bottling experience at Best Vineyards during our Nouveau weekend, November 21 thru 24. (It also makes for a great photo op.) In keeping with the fifty year tradition in France, customers purchasing a bottle of the 2013 Nouveau wine this weekend will get the opportunity to rinse, fill, cork and label their own bottle of wine. This wine was produced in the traditional style of the French Beaujolais Nouveau’s but with a Hoosier twist. Chambourcin and NY Muscat clusters are fermented in a process called carbonic maceration which have produced a very young, fruit forward wine that will pair well with next week’s turkey.
To our loyal fans, fellow employees and everyone who voted for us,
You did it. Thank you so much as we could not have done it without you.

Now, we wait and keep our fingers crossed with the hope of becoming one of the chosen 12 grant recipients.
Best Vineyards has applied for a grant thru Mission Main Street Grants to help grow our small business but we need your help. To send our application on to the next step in the selection process, we need you, our loyal customers, to vote for us.

We would like to expand our production and open an additional tasting room in the Louisville area.
And if you feel we’re great pass the word and help us win our grant!

We’re gearing up for a busy weekend ahead.
Join us Saturday morning for our last Harvest. Or visit us in Laconia during the Laconia Days festival. Or, enjoy a relaxing afternoon at the winery with the Full House Band from 4-8pm. We’ll be serving our warm mulled wine.
No. It’s not that funny weed. It’s a progressive form of bluegrass called New Grass. That’s right folks. New Grass is one of two major sub-genres of bluegrass music. Join us on Saturday for an afternoon with Old Truck Revival from 4-8pm. You don’t just tap your foot, your whole body taps. It’s lively, it’s fun, and it wakes up every one of your sleeping bluegrass cells and invites your body, heart, and soul to join the party. These guys take that old generations-past style bluegrass and bridge the gap to generation-now.
Join Best Vineyards and the other wineries along Indiana Uplands Wine Trail for celebration of Indiana food and wine. Enjoy an evening of delectable bites from three area chefs during a food and wine challenge where you pick the winner. Sip mouthwatering cocktails from an award winning mixologist featuring Indiana grown wines. Learn about the exciting new Indiana Uplands AVA and what it means to Indiana. Taste foods prepared by local artisans. And, sample a selection of the award winning wines from the wineries of the Uplands Wine Trail.
Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the “Local Growers Guild.” The Guild serves to strengthen the local food economy and raise awareness of local food and the farm-to-table philosophy by promoting Indiana food producers and farms among retailers and patrons, providing grower education, and advocating for small farms on a state and national level. Our contribution to the silent auction is based on the theme, “What are little boys made of? It includes an over-sized baby quilt, a mini Radio Flyer wagon, a fold’n'store Radio Flyer tricycle, a framed print, and a hand crafted stuffed puppy.
