Cultivating the Best Grapes for Award-Winning Wines

Our Story

Constructed on our family-owned farm, Country Heritage Winery & Vineyard gives true meaning to its name. The farm has over 100 years of family heritage. We have generations of experience growing excellent crops, and it is our greatest pride to nurture our grapes from the day we plant the vines through the day you enjoy our wine.

We maintain over 101 acres of vineyards, the largest in the state of Indiana. We work with highly regarded vineyards and farms to source the rest of our fruit. With meticulous care and attention to detail, we strive to nurture the best grapes for our wines. After all, if the fruit is great, the winemaking is easy.

Jennifer & Jeremy Lutter


​We both grew up in farming families in the LaOtto Community. After graduating high school we married in 1997. We continued farming full time until 2000 when we purchased a 12 acre Blueberry Farm. In 2001 our son, Brian, came into our lives. We then decided to expand the Blueberry Farm for Jennifer to run while staying home with Brian. Our love for produce and specialty crops like red raspberries, blueberries, melons, sweet corn, and grapes brought us to where we are today with Country Heritage Winery.

Kevin Geeting

Head Winemaker

Born and raised in Auburn, Indiana. I graduated in 1993 from Tri-State University (aka Trine) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematical Science. One evening, when away on a business trip at a sales convention, a colleague coaxed me into trying wine with dinner. It was a 1998 Wynns Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon. That one wine changed my life. Soon thereafter I bought a winemaking book and learned how to make wine, until I eventually became a full-time assistant winemaking position. I later moved to Virginia, taking a similar position for a year, before coming home to take the winemaker’s position here at County Heritage. I am back living in Auburn with my wife Denissa and our three girls, Abbey, Autumn, and Sophia. ​
