At Stream Cliff Farm Winery it is our desire to provide customers with the best wine experience possible. The selection of wines range from bold, dry reds including our Iron Hand (Cabernet Sauvignon), Thunderhoof (Cabernet Franc), Rawhide (Pinot Noir), Old Bo (Chambourcin style) and Running Horse Red (Merlot). These all pair nicely with beef meals, blue cheese and especially nice with the herbs rosemary and thyme. Our dry, whites include Golden Gallop (Sauvignon blanc), My Dolly (Chardonnay) and Spotted Horse (Riesling). These pair nicely with creamy cheeses and the herbs dill, parsley and tarragon. Chicken, pork and fish are also delicious with these white wines. For those with a sweeter palate we offer many fruit wines such as apple, peach, cranberry, black currant, raspberry and blackberry. Generally we offer about 18-20 wines from which to select. During the fall and Christmas season be sure to sample our Christmas wine. It is sure to be the hit of the season.
People often ask what is new at the winery. This season we will be having more live music. Recently an outdoor Gathering Place has been built near the winery and is perfect for music. We will be offering musicians performing blues, folk, jazz and bluegrass music. So be sure to check out this area. Box lunches from the Tearoom Restaurant may be enjoyed as well as wine by the glass. Sometime this season we will be opening the Wine Cellar event room which will provide more table space and room for more groups to enjoy the winery atmosphere. The winery was once a blacksmith shop and has an inviting old-fashioned ambience.
We have a very exciting evening planned for October 5. Join us for a night of BBQ & Blues at the Winery and Gathering Place. Acclaimed blues artist, Gary Applegate, will provide the soulful entertainment. A delicious buffet of: 1/2 BBQ Chicken or 1/2 rack of Ribs, Buttered Baked Potato, Seasoned Green Beans, Slaw, Cake and non-alcoholic beverage will be served. Wine may be purchased separately. This will a great night to gather together with friends and relax in the cool autumn night.
Another exciting new event beginning Sept 14 will be Hayrides to the Creek. Guests will enjoy a beautiful ride to a private section of our farm, have wine and gourmet picnic fare. Each guest will leave with a Stream Cliff Winery glass to commemorate their visit. More information is found in "Hayrides to the Creek."
We recently returned from Napa Valley, California which is certainly the "wine capital" of the country. The interesting thing we found though, is we felt Indiana has much to be proud about when it comes to giving a very nice wine experience. In California they are very serious about dry style wine and we did not find Midwestern sweet wine. However, our feeling is that good wine is the wine that pleases the person's palate who is purchasing it! That is why we make both styles.
Our winery is unique because we do a lot of pairing with wine and herbs for exceptional flavor. Our farm offers many cooking classes teaching how to use both wines and herbs in food preparation. Please refer to class registration more information. The winery offers special group events for groups of fifteen or more.
