Are children allowed at the winery?

For all 3 of our locations, we welcome the entire family at Country Heritage Winery, no matter how young! However, we do have some rules for everyone to follow to ensure safety. In accordance with the law, anyone under 21 must be accompanied by a parent.   Children must never be unaccompanied, within arm's reach of parent. In addition, children cannot be running around the property, through the vineyards, or on our landscaping features. We encourage bringing board games, but absolutely no footballs, soccer balls, or any other kinds of balls. Individuals under 21 cannot be at our wood-burning firepits, Estate Suite, Igloos, or at our tasting counter. Your cooperation with these guidelines will ensure that we can continue to be a family-friendly destination.

Can I bring my own food or drinks into the winery or outside space?

In accordance with FDA and Board of Health regulations, we cannot allow outside food, beverages, or containers of any kind on the premises. This includes coffees (Starbucks, etc.), water bottles purchased elsewhere, personal water bottles or containers, thermoses, juice, milk, snacks, coolers, and the like. We do have a selection of snacks, water bottles, and Coca-Cola products available for purchase every day.

Even if you have dietary restrictions or other preferences, we cannot allow outside food, beverages, or containers on winery property.

I'm not a wine drinker. Do you offer any beer or cocktails?

With our current license, it is not legal in the State of Indiana to have any alcohol that we do not sell at the winery. Our license is as a farm winery, so our wines are the only alcoholic beverages we are permitted to sell.

We recommend trying our wine slushies or ciders if wine is not your preference. We also always encourage guests to taste a few wines. Ask your server for recommendations - often, we can find something you will enjoy! If you still would prefer to enjoy something other than our wines, we do offer water and Pepsi products for sale at our winery.

We do, however, in our Event Center we do have a license for beer. We carry two local craft beer companies. All beer must remain within the boundaries of the Event Center and the private patio.

Do you allow dogs?

While we absolutely love our 4-legged friends, unfortunately, our insurance company does not. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
