Both of these were really nice wineries. Grape Inspirations had an advantage over other Indiana wineries in that their grapes are shipped in from all over the world allowing them to do wines from grapes we don’t have here (merlot, chianti, etc.)
Ferrin’s had lovely fruity wines, nice and sweet. I bought a bottle of the Pina Colada wine, but it was hard to make up my mind. They also had a unusual and nice chocolate wine.
At Grape Inspirations, my favorite three had to be the 2 ice wines and their sweet port. It was so smooth. They had lots of other wines I liked, but out of all the wines I’ve tasted at all the wineries I’ve been to, those 3 wines are the most memorable.
Since both of these wineries are in the city, you don’t get the sense that you are at an operational winery. No grape vineyards outside, no big giant oak barrels around the tasting room, but the wines were excellent.
I only have one more winery to finish the Indy Wine Trail, which will be my first complete loop of the 3 loops.
I visited both this last week. Huber is huge and also has a cheese store, a produce store with breads and other things, and an ice cream shop. The store was really nice and there seemed to be a u-pick. The drive was absolutely beautiful. I bought a bottle of the sweet marcella. It was a nice sweet red.
Turtle Run was very small family owned and very quaint. Surrounded again by a beautiful drive, and a quaint little town. I bought a CD of Tuscan music and a bottle of raspberry wine. I also got a recipe for a blackberry cake from the lady there to make to drink with the wine. The cake is made with blackberry wine, which I have a bottle at home from the Mallow Run winery. I really liked both of these wineries for completely different reasons.
I really liked a handful of their wines. Had to stop tasting because they were all good. They had a lovely all strawberry wine, and their Catawba Autumn Blush was really nice too. I left with a bottle of the Arbor Red, but I also liked their Dew Drop. It was all wonderful. I would like to try more of them on another day. It is very close by, so this winery is somewhere I will visit again.
Was a great location, but I was told the wine is shipped in. Very good, but I wonder who it really was. General’s Sipping Wine.
Well, I found out there were 3 loops to the Indiana Wine Trails, which I didn’t know, and I was hitting individual wineries from all 3 loops, so I decided to do all 3, but to concentrate and finish them one at a time. The first loop is the Indy Wine Trail. I’ve done 2 of the 7 and am scheduled for a 3rd, next Friday. As I complete them, I’ll add them to things I’ve done, but won’t remove this until all 3 are complete.
I liked the Rhubarb and Picnic Blush the best. IF I was eating chocolate cake, or something really fudgy, I’d drink the rasperry.
Easley – Reggae Blush is hooting good
