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:
Which wine should you serve with dinner tonight? If you are serving red meat, you will typically want to pair it with a red wine. Pair white wine with white meat or fish. If you are indulging in dessert, choose a sweet wine to have along with it.
Happy National Drink Wine Day!
National Drink Wine Day is celebrated every year on February 18th. So open a bottle tonight and cheers to all of the positive benefits of wine such as health benefits, friendships, love, and the enrichment of food and life.
Wine Wednesday's tip of the week: Serving temperatures should typically be lower for white wines than for red wines. A good range for whites is between 45-50 degrees Fahrenheit and for reds 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit depending on the variety.
Wine Wednesday's tip of the week: Historically, wine has never been stored standing up. Storing wine on its side keeps the wine in contact with the cork, which prevents the cork from drying, shrinking, and letting in air. However, if the bottle has an artificial cork, the wine can be stored vertically.
It may be cold outside but the snow looks beautiful at the vineyard!
Cheers to a great weekend!
The custom of bumping glasses with a “cheers” greeting came from old Rome where they used this method to make sure no one is trying to poison the other (bumping glasses makes the drink spill from one cup to the other). This tradition started even earlier in ancient Greece – where the host was to drink the first cup of wine to show his guests he does not intend to poison them.
The color of the wine tells you about its geographical origin.
One of the things that you can tell by looking at the color of the wine, is the region and climate where the grape vine is located. Darker shades of wine, namely the darkest reds and yellow whites come from warm climates. Lighter colors come from cooler climates and taste lighter and less lush.
Anyone remember just more than 4 years ago what the land looked like on the corner of 86th and Carroll Rd.?
We have come a long way and we would have not been able to do it without the communities support!!!
It's beginning to look a lot like the holidays!!
As the Holiday Season is among us, we'd like to recognize supporters in our community! Meet Dave and his bunch of grapes toting around the neighborhood collecting Halloween candy!!!
