Stream Cliff Farm Winery News

The Winery has been a nice addition to the existing Herb Farm and Twigs & Sprigs Restaurant. It is always our heartfelt desire that every time a visitor comes they take away the feeling of a delightful experience.

Many people enjoy our handcrafted wines. The selection is broad, from the dry reds such as Iron Hand (Cabernet Sauvignon), Thunderhoof (Cabernet Franc), Rawhide (Pinot Noir), Old Bo (Chambourcin style) and Running Horse Red (Merlot). Dry white wines are Golden Gallop (Sauvignon Blanc), My Dolly (Chardonnay), Spotted Horse (Riesling) and Horsefeathers (Seyval Blanc style) For our friends with a sweeter palate there are many fruit wines from which to select. Some of these include our wines made using blackberry (people often tell us it is the best blackberry wine they have tasted), apple, peach, cranberry, black currant, and raspberry. Our Christmas wine (available Oct-Dec) has an amusing label and makes a perfect gift. Most of the time, we have 18-20 different wines for which to choose.

The Winery dining room was an existing space which was decorated and finished recently. It has been enjoyed during our winter lunches and Candlelight Dinners. The room has a barrel ceiling and the floor has the look of old brick. This charming room will seat about forty people and has such a warm and welcoming atmosphere, just right for an old building that was once a blacksmith shop.

Again this year live music will be presented in the Winery's beautiful Gathering Place Pavilion. We will be having live music each Sunday afternoon 1:00-4:00 between June 14 and September 20. Gary Phelps will present a Johnny Cash tribute on the Saturdays of our Celebration Days: Garden Day June 6, Quilt Show July 11, Mum Day Aug 22 and Harmony Quilt Show Sept 19. Again this year we are thrilled to have our good friend Rusty Bladen join us on Aug 2 & Sept 20. New this year is the region's premier variety band "The Hiding: Unplugged" stripped down for an intimate acoustic performance on July 26 and Sept 13. "High Octane" an awesome bluegrass band will be back on June 21, July 19 & Aug 30. Be sure to "Like" us on Facebook to see up to date information on our Summer Music Series.

We have two BBQ evening events planned in the Winery Pavilion. On Aug 8, 5:00-8:00 there will be a BBQ & Blues event with the very talented duo Andra Faye & Scott Ballantine performing. A delicious meal with a menu of a half rack of BBQ Ribs or half BBQ Chicken, Penne Pasta with Rosemary Sautéed Vegetables, Summer Green Salad, Peach Cobbler with ice cream and a non-alcoholic beverage. Sept 12, 5:00-8:00 "Deer Creek" bluegrass band will perform while you enjoy the following meal: half rack of BBQ Ribs or half BBQ Chicken, World's Best Baked Beans, Broccoli Gratin, Dill Slaw, Blackberry Cobbler with Ice Cream and a non-alcoholic beverage. Fee for either event is $28.00 per person, must be 21. Wine available separately.

One of the highlights of visiting the Winery in the Fall is going on a hayride to our private creek. Greg, our son, organizes these hayrides to a beautiful, secluded part of the Farm visitors do not regularly see. The hayrides have been a huge hit! We will be serving cheeses, fruit, salami, olives and herbal bread. Guests will enjoy 2 glasses of wine per individual or one bottle of wine per couple. Each guest will leave with a Stream Cliff Winery glass to commemorate their visit. Fee is $55 per couple or $27.50 per individual.

Our Winery is unique because we do a lot of pairing with wine and herbs for exceptional flavor. Our farm offers cooking classes emphasizing how to use both wines and herbs in food preparation. Please refer to the class registration for more information. The Winery offers special group events for groups of fifteen or more.

Stream Cliff Farm Winery is on the Indiana Wine Trail (Southeast). A passport program for visiting all the six wineries on the trail is offered with a gift given to those completing the journey. The website is www.indianawinetrail.com.
