Scout Mountain Winery in Corydon, Indiana
Southern Indiana always amazes me. Those hills and the trees and the hills. I guess I’m just not expecting all the lovely, lovely green of it all.
Well, Scout Mountain Winery is right smack dab in the middle of it. In fact, you could say it’s pretty much surrounded by it. Situated on 35 acres and surrounded by forest, t’s a soul satisfying kind of property. There’s something about this business that just makes you feel calm and happy. It’s so pretty and serene.
As the Indiana wine goes, this Southern Indiana winery is welcoming and cozy. It takes that old snobbery about wine and sees it carefully out the door, thank you very much. Anyone can enjoy a glass (or a bottle) of good wine in good company. There is seating indoors and out.

The owners of Scout Mountain Winery, Mike and Margaret Schad, couldn’t be nicer. They also have their fair share of wine-making experience.
Mike has been making wine for twenty years. He’s learned a lot over the years. After such rave reviews from those close to him, it just made sense to make it available to everyone. So, they opened up their own winery. Scout Mountain Winery turned four years old this year.
Margaret is a hoot. She’s responsible for one of the more colorful wine names on the menu–and I didn’t doubt that for a minute. This is the type of place that throws off those tired stereotypes about wine and proves that a great glass of Indiana wine is accessible to everyone. If you have been feeling a little weird about trying Indiana wine, you need to give it a try. This would make a fabulous first stop.
We lingered at Scout Mountain Winery in Corydon, Indiana longer than we had planned. It was such a welcome, happy place we didn’t want to leave! With events and live music throughout the year, well, it’s just a very comfortable place to relax.
If you want a winery with sophisticated (i.e. snobby) airs, fancy dress, and an hors’ doeuvres menu, move along. But if you desire a modest yet satisfying snack list (amazing local goat cheese and seasonal breads), fabulous wines from Dry to Sweet, and Hoosier hospitality, Scout Mountain Winery will be your favorite new destination. They do give discounts to vets, military, and first responders (at the time of the writing). Just ask.
