Welcome to Daniel's Vineyard

Started in 2010, Daniel's Vineyard has planted more than 14,000 vines on 80 acres offering 8 different varieties of grapes. Using the best practices known, we manage this vineyard with one objective - to produce the best possible wine from Indiana grapes. Our long, warm summers and bright sunshine allow us to ripen the broadest range of grapes.

We are located in central Indiana and just around the corner from the beautiful Geist Reservoir. It is an ideal location for people to come and enjoy our vineyard. Although we are young, we are committed to developing this vineyard into a first-class winery in the years to come. Keep checking back on our website as we will post updates on the progress being made.

Learn about the "Varieties" of grapes we are growing or keep up to date with "Events" going on at the vineyard. There are plenty of "Opportunities" already started at Daniel's Vineyard as this is our first year for harvest. We ask that you take your time to learn about our vineyard and we look forward to seeing you in the near future!

Wine Wednesday's tip of the week:

Wine glasses should be held by the stem and not the bowl because the heat of your hand can increase the temperature of the wine in your glass.

Wine Wednesday's tip of the week:

When tasting a wine, hold the wine in the mouth for a few seconds before swallowing. This will allow you to savor the aftertaste. Typically, the longer the aftertaste the better the wine.

Wine Wednesday's tip of the week:

When testing a wine, we recommend filling your glass no more than a third full to allow aromas to collect and then swirl your glass to encourage the wine to release all of its aromas.

Wine Wednesday's tip of the week:

The kitchen can be one of the worst places to store wine because it is typically too warm to store safely. Try storing your wine in a room that stays cooler.

Wine Wednesday's tip of the week:
Rarely do wines taste like grapes, they usually have the flavors of other fruits. Next time you enjoy a glass of wine, observe what other fruits you pick up.

Wine Wednesday's tip of the week: Instead of smelling the cork of the wine, look for the date and other identifying information. This can often tell you more about the wine than the scent of the cork.
