So why does this area offer such a perfect scenario for grape growing? Thank the glaciers. On their trek south so many eons ago, they stopped in this region, leaving deep valleys adjacent to untouched plateaus. This resulted in a triangular area called the Uplands – an area that gives you a dramatic view of the cataclysmic power of the glaciers, and also gives wines distinction.
“Things grow differently here,” Pfeiffer says simply.Modern winemakers like Pfeiffer weren’t the first to discover the magic of
While the fortunes of winemakers rose and fell over the years (thanks to factors ranging from vine disease to economic upheaval and the Civil War), Indiana was still America’s 10th largest grape-producing state in the years leading up to prohibition. In the years following prohibition, however, the state’s wine making pretty well dried up.
It wasn’t until the 1960s that small wineries began to appear with any frequency around the state again. Then, in the 1970s, changes in legislation made wine making a more feasible endeavor. Since then, the state has been home to a growing number of vineyards, including the ones in
And that brings us back to Jim and Laura Pfeiffer. Like their grape vines, they’ve put down roots here. Trained in the art of wine making in

Step out onto the winery’s deck with Best, and he’ll explain that the land you see was once a flower farm. The view, a perfect accompaniment to a glass of wine, entices you to wander the vineyards and brambles.
Then head just a little farther down the road to Indian Creek Winery. Its unfinished exterior testifies to its being open less than two years, but inside you’ll feel comfortable enough to think it’s been there for years. The tasting room bids for your attention with its ceiling of western cedar and wall of carefully selected local stones.
All of this is the passion of Mark and Mary Kendall who, along with their family and dogs Ziggy and Blue, welcome the chance to share samples of their wines with visitors. Although Indian Creek is not yet mature enough to produce its own grapes, that doesn’t mean the

Scout Mountain is proud to be the fourth winery in Harrison County. Situated on 35 acres surrounded by forestry Scount Mountain Winery opened its doors in May 2009. Owner Mike Schad has been making wine for about 20 years. The love has been there for a long time.
Along side their vineyard is about 100 apple trees ripe for picking in the fall. They also grow very flavorful and unique heirloom vegetables, herbs, and plants and sell them in the spring and summer months.
Nestled among the vineyard and gardens they offer overnight accommodations in their bed and breakfast cottage. The house was built in the 1920's and is the perfect quiet get-a-way in the middle of Indiana's fastest growing wine trail.
