Congratulations to all 7 entries for the Talent Contest on their wonderful performances. The competition was tough and the voting was close but top honors go to Cody, Kristain, Bryce and Logan as The Dirt Roaders. Second place went to the duet of Bailey and Kenzie. And third place honors went to Meadow Ryann and Skyler Jones. The contestants played to a packed house and rounds of thundering applause. We hope to see everyone back again for next year’s show (or maybe at a concert during the summer). Honorable mentions go out for the performances by Quintin Bir, the Rock Stars duet of Macy and Reighley, Dalton Cartwright, and the Better Than Bailey trio of Noah, Cole and Logan. A special thanks to Marty Hubler for putting together the acts, setting up the sound system, and finding the judges (Hugh Bir, George Stone, Matt Stone, and Mary). Congratulations again to all the contestants.
With a prediction of perfect weather and the gorgeous fall foliage starting to dazzle the senses with their glorious colors, enjoy a visit to your local winery. This Saturday enjoy the musical stylings of local musician, Eric Tyler. Due to the shorter days, the music will be from 3-7pm (1 hour earlier that our summer series). Enjoy samples of our Spiced Apple wine slightly warmed with a salty pretzel or try a taste of our special Mulled wine. Both are sure to be a hit at any fall or holiday gathering.
Join us on Saturday, October 11th, from 11-7pm for wine tasting during the Harvest Homecoming festivities. There will be a $5 fee for the wine tasting which will include unlimited wine tastings and a Best Vineyards souvenir wine glass. Guests can purchase a glass of wine to enjoy during the festival (try the warm mulled wine) or they may also purchase wines to take home (ask about our claim tickets so you can pick it up later). We will also have a selection of other wine related items such as our gourmet cheese trays, mulling spices, and bread dipping spices available for purchase. Guests may re-enter the venue as long as they are still wearing their wristband and have their wine glass.
If you’re a morning person, look for us in Laconia, IN in front of the Post Office for wine tasting during their annual Laconia Days festival. The parade begins at 11am. And will be followed by the Old West shoot out in the 4-way. The Salty Dawgs will also be preforming in the afternoon. It’s sure the be a great day.
Or maybe you just want to sit back and listen to some good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll. Well, drop by the winery on Satuday between 4 and 8pm to catch the rocking sounds of the Full House Band. These good ol’ boys play a little country and a lot of rock. And, maybe, the infamous Scotty T will drop in and play a song or two with them. Who knows? You’ll need to drop in and find out.
Answer: Why, Best Vineyards, of course!
Up for a little harness racing? Join us at the Harrison Co. Fall Harness Racing Meet on Sat., Sept. 27 from 11-4pm at the Harrison Country Fairgrounds. This event is free to the public but the wine tasting portion will be $10. Wine tasting is from 12-4pm and includes a commemorative tasting glass for the first 200 attendees. There will also be a large selection of craft, food and antique booths to browse.
If Harness Racing isn’t your thing, maybe a food and wine fundraiser is. We’ll be at the 8th Annual Sips, Samples and Songs fundraiser for Anderson Woods on the RiverWalk (near the Schaefer Hog Barn) in Jasper, IN from 2-6pm. Guests will enjoy live music, wine tasting from area wineries, delicious food samples from local restaurants, and a silent auction. All the money (100%) raised directly benefits Anderson Woods and their summer camp program for children and adults with physical and mental disabilities. Please join us in supporting this great cause.
Or maybe you just want to while away a lazy Saturday afternoon sipping delicious wine (or maybe an ice cold slushie) and listening to some groovy hits from the 50′s, 60′s, 70′s and 80′s? Then we have the perfect local band for you. Join us a the winery from 4-8pm as The Salty Dawgs set up in the gazebo for an afternoon of great oldies.

We will also have samples of our Mango Pina Colada slushies and a Sweet Red Wine slushie for those over 21.
