Nashville location: Limited tastings are available daily. Tastings will be available by table service, and the menu will be limited. We will continue to post updates about any changes to our tasting service as they happen.
Are children allowed at the winery?
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. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult over 21, within arms reach. Children must never be unaccompanied. 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. We also cannot allow anyone under the age of 21 to stand or be near the tasting bar. 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, sparkling juices, and Pepsi products available for purchase every day. We also have our patio bar open during weekend hours, as well as food trucks as scheduled.
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?
As a facility that produces and sells our own wine, it is not legal in the State of Indiana to have any alcohol that we do not sell on the property. 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, sparkling juices, and Pepsi products for sale at our winery.
