Celebrate the IUWT 15th Anniversary – April 21st & 22nd

Join us this weekend as we celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail and announce the launch of our new paid passport program.

To celebrate, each winery along the trail will serve their award-winning wines throughout the weekend. Spring marks the time for the release of new vintages and Anniversary visitors will find quite a few new selections along the trail in April to taste with special anniversary desserts and foods being offered. Winzerwald Winery will feature grape cupcakes with grape preserve centers paired with your choice of a dry or sweet wine. French Lick Winery will be offering a paired wine and cheese selection. Best Vineyards is serving lemon curd filled angel food cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Owen Valley will delight visitor’s taste buds with a dark chocolate cupcake with chocolate ganache. Butler Winery will be serving miniature cheesecakes all weekend. Huber Winery will be offering anniversary cookies with sprinkles during a tasting in the loft.

The new 2018 VIP Passport which runs through December 2018 will also be available for purchase during the kick-off weekend. The Passport gives VIP wine lovers an elevated wine experience at all nine Wine Trail wineries when they purchase a paid tasting or receive a complimentary tasting. Special cellar tours, gifts for visiting, bonus wine tastings, cheese and wine pairings, or tastes of reserve wines or distilled spirits are among the experiences to be found along the trail with the VIP Passport.  Complete the passport this year, and receive a signature stainless steel logo tumbler, compliments of the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail.

It’s BACK!!! Spiced Apple Release 9-1-17

As Hurricane Harvey makes his way to Kentuckiana and brings cooler temps to the region, our thoughts turn to the upcoming fall season.  And Fall means one thing:  The arrival of SPICED APPLE WINE.

Join us this weekend for our official 2017 release of this exceptional crowd pleaser.  A blend of big juicy apples and grape wine with the spicy fall flavors of cinnamon, ginger and a hint of clove.  All sweetened to perfection.  It’s perfect sipped warm, chilled or room temp.  Get yours today.

Sip & Stroll Wine & Beer Walk in Seymour, IN this weekend!!

 So the event coordinators at The Story Inn decided to revamp their Indiana Wine Festival by changing the date of the event.  But don’t panic, you dedicated wine connoisseurs.  The 1st Annual Happy Glamper Show is taking place on April 28th & 29th and will incorporate a Wine & Beer Walk on Saturday, the 29th, from 2-5pm.  This is a FREE event but you must be 21 or older to participate in the walk.  Best Vineyards will be located in the Copper Rooster at 210 W 2nd Street in beautiful downtown Seymour, IN.  Join us and sample our amazing Mango Pina Coladas, the refreshing Fiesta Cocktail, our award winning wines and our newly released spirits while enjoying the gorgeous retro & vintage campers that will be on display in the park.

Enjoy Thunder on the Big Screens

With the current weather forecast calling for RAIN, COLD TEMPS & WIND, why not enjoy Thunder Over Louisville on the Big Screen TV’s in the warm and cozy atmosphere at Best Vineyards while sipping a spicy Bloody Mary or a refreshing Mango Pina Colada?     
Grab a picnic basket and spend the day with us.  We’ll also have a selection of Cheese Trays available this weekend.

SPECIAL NOTE:  It is with great sadness that we are passing along the information about the Huntingburg Garden Gate Art & Jazz Festival.  The event organizers have painstakingly weighted the pros and cons of having the event this weekend.  Because this is an outdoor event, they have decided to cancelled due to the rain, colder temps and potential strong wind gusts.  They will reconvene next week and determine if an alternate date for the event will be considered.  As we find out more information, we will pass it along to you. **** UPDATE – The Garden Gate Art & Jazz Festival’s Wine Garden has been rescheduled for July 15. Best Vineyards will be there. We hope you will too.

A Salute to Spring – via Cheese, Wine, Spirits, & Walk

Big happenings at the winery this weekend.  This is the official “Toast to Spring” for the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail.  All visitors to the winery this Saturday (4-8) and Sunday (4-9) can sample a selection of delectable cheese with their wine tasting.  The winery will have 3 savory cheeses: a white cheese with Roasted Red Pepper with Black Peppercorns, an Applewood Smoked Cheddar with Sea Salt, and a spicy Chipotle with Garlic.  There will also be a Wild Blueberry & Strawberry Goat Cheese to round out the tastings.  Savory & Graham crackers will be available.

The winery will also be presenting our first release of our estate grown and bottled Blackberry wine.  Last year presented a bountiful crop of blackberries.  Those gorgeous little gems were fermented, pressed, sweetened, filtered and bottled.  Many of you have asked for a blackberry wine over the last few years.  Stop in and sample some this weekend.

In the distillery, we would like to welcome Limoncello to the distilled spirits list. Copious amounts of fresh lemon zest were blended with grain spirits produced in Harrison County’s first “legal” distillery then sweetened to produce a smooth, refreshing liqueur with an intense Lemon flavor.  Perfect sipped chilled on its own, shaken into cocktails or mixed into sparkling water.

Can’t make it to the winery on Saturday but you’re going to be in the Corydon area?  Stop by our booth in BR Graphix on Saturday  from 2-7pm as we participate in the 2nd Annual Spring Wine Walk presented by the Downtown Corydon Merchants.  The weather is going to be near 70 and sunny.  A perfect day to stroll around Corydon and enjoy  a wonderful spring afternoon.

 

Festival time has arrived. Spring can’t be too far off.

Join us Saturday at the D’vine Wine & Beer Fest in Columbus, Indiana for the first wine festival of the 2017 season.  We’ll be debuting our new distilled spirits.  The spirits will include Vodka, a Maple Syrup Liqueur and a Peach Moonshine.

Best Vineyards will also be at the Sugarbush Festival in Salem, IN.  This is a fantastic little festival celebrating all things Maple and local artisans.  In the past, we have produced a Maple Syrup wine but this year we decided to branch out and go for a liqueur featuring our distilled spirits and the Sugarbush Maple Syrup.  This is a 100% Indiana grown and produced product.
