“Come help us celebrate the abundance!”
Although the wine store is NOT keeping regular hours we are open by appointment for those who would like to come for a free wine tasting or vineyard tour. We also welcome visitors who are interested in what's happening in their neighborhood or perhaps pondering a vineyard or winery of their own. We hope to see you soon! Growing grapes in the middle of corn and soybean country may sound a little crazy. Bone-chilling winters, late spring frosts, and wet summers are all unfavorable to grapevines - at least the kind that come from Europe. But there are many species of grapes that are native to this continent and therefore more tempered to our climates. Grown in their native form or crossed with the viniferaspecies, many grape varieties and hybrids exist today that are not only hardy but very suited to winemaking. Scientists are starting to think that cool and humid climates may even stimulate production of the grape's micronutrients most beneficial to humans. Of course grapes aren't the only thing from which you can make wine! We often hear stories of how past generations made wine from whatever their farm was blessed with each season -- be it cherries, apples or persimmons. These country wines were celebrations of abundance and a "good batch" was remembered for years to come. So France can do their thing and California too. Even Southern Indiana has hills and water features that allow them to come closer to the international wine model. We wish them all the best. But here in Central Indiana we're focusing on what was created for this area and exploring the unique opportunities we have here. We believe there are many fun and exciting results awaiting our harvests of grapes and local fruits. When you visit Country Moon Winery we hope you are reminded of the unpretentious but precious wine made by early American settlers for their own enjoyment. Come help us celebrate the abundance!
