Whyte Horse Winery in Monticello, Indiana doesn’t just have phenomenal, award-winning wines and friendly, knowledgeable staff–they also have a great story to tell!

What would a small town business be without a great story? At Whyte Horse Winery, it all started with a horse.

The property in this small Indiana town caught their eye with it’s lovely rolling hills, but they were told that it had already received a full price offer. They couldn’t resist and made a backup offer anyway.

At church the next day, they received a message from the owner. Upon returning the call, they were asked, “Will you take the horse?”

The answer was “Yes!” and Whyte Horse Winery was born!

That was ten years ago. Today, this Indiana winery occupies ten peaceful acres.  While you will see a small vineyard, complete with incredible gazebo, planted near the farmhouse (which made a beautiful spot for a wedding!), that isn’t the whole of it.

A few miles away lies the rest of the Indiana grape-producing fields of yum.

But back near the1886 built  farmhouse, you’ll find a hive of activity. It’s where folks go for wine tastings, cheese, and a little shopping.

With so many award-winning Indiana wines proudly displayed in the wine tasting room, it’s a bit overwhelming just trying to decide where to begin! But the very nice folks at Whyte Horse Winery are quick to help you narrow it down and find your new favorites. We enjoyed every wine we sipped, from reds to whites to fruity wines! For me, that’s pretty amazing!

Even we couldn’t leave without bringing home a bottle or two (or three) of this fabulous White County wine as well as a stylin’ new wine-rack for our wall.

It was hard to decide between all the different varieties! But, thanks to our little wine tasting, I think we did pretty good.

There’s more to the story of Whyte Horse Winery.
