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:

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: 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.

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.

Daniel's Vineyard - Feb-11-2015 19:02:53
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.

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.
