You would never guess that once upon a time, not so very long ago, the charming red barn was once the home of draft horses! Built in 1919, it’s come a long way from it’s original purpose.
The barn built by winemaker Ed Courtright’s grandfather now houses a great Jasper County attraction located between the towns of Remington and Rensselaer, Indiana.
Step inside and enjoy the pleasant tasting room complete with gorgeous vineyard views and stamped concrete flooring–in a grape pattern, of course. It’s a lovely space and well-stocked with bottles that run the range.
Remington, Indiana Winery
It began with the grapes. The desire to supply wine grapes led Ed Courtright and his son to plant the first vines. This vineyard is now known as “Byron’s Vineyard” in honor of his memory. A decade later, a larger vineyard, the “Big Vineyard,” was planted.
Gaining two business partners and with years of paperwork behind them, Carpenter Creek Cellars finally opened their doors to the appreciative public in March of 2013.
Just a mere six months later, Carpenter Creek Cellars racked up the awards at the 2013 Indy International! Carpenter Creek Cellars won shiny medals for several of their wines! These included a Silver Medal in Gunny White, Sunset Rosé, and Sunset Red snagging Bronze Medals for both the Gunny Red and the Riesling.
Aside from the hustle and bustle of competitions, visitors to the winery can expect a more serene and relaxing sort of atmosphere. It’s even become an entertainment destination, hosting special events throughout the year. Locals can’t resist the live music!
Carpenter Creek Cellars in Jasper County is a true labor of love. The proof is in the taste!
