This Orange County winery has a very long counter and more than a few wines ready for tasting!
French Lick Winery in West Baden Springs, Indiana
I was a bit apprehensive about attending a wine tasting. Sure, I’d checked out the Wine and Cheese Shoppe in Wabash, Indiana–but I’d talked to those folks so many times that I felt comfortable with them.
For an actual winery, where you can even see the Indiana wine made right there on site, I was concerned I’d feel a little silly at my lack of wine know-how. My wine knowledge is limited to this: wine is made of grapes and I like a sweeter wine. That’s about it.
The people at French Lick Winery were so knowledgeable and friendly. I didn’t need to worry at all! Best of all–they have an entire list of wines that you can taste for free.
West Baden Springs, Indiana WineBut more than just tasting wine, the sommelier gives you a bit of the background.
Sip by sip, we found out what wines won what awards, what that means, and also more about the wine itself.
We learned about the “notes” we were tasting, the age of the wine, what to pair it with, and so much more than my brain can hold at any one time!
It was definitely educational and really interesting. Did I mention good, too?
Go ThereHelpful and informative, you’ll find the wine-tasting experience at French Lick Winery to be a fun experience. With coloring books for the kids, the family is welcome.
Here I thought I didn’t like many wines and yet there wasn’t a single French Lick wine I tasted that I didn’t enjoy. I guess I need to stick to wines from an Indiana winery!
