Winzerwald Winery


Winzerwald Winery was establishedin June, 2002 on a picturesque hill overlooking Interstate 64, in the Hoosier National Forest. Winzerwald is German for “winemakers of the forest”. The winery celebrates the owner’s and the regions German heritage. Nutcrackers are truly a southern Germany favorite and they were therefore chosen as the winery’s logo and label design.

A new vineyard is located along I-64 at the winery and the 20 year old vineyard is nestled along the Ohio River on the family’s fifth generation farm.  Gold Medals and Best of Show honors have been granted to Winzerwald Winery for its full-bodied, uniquely smooth wines that most are sure to call their favorites. Winzerwald is known for its outstanding German-style wines including Riesling, Black Riesling, Blaufränkish, Gewürztraminer, Mai Wein, Lieblich and Glühwein. A very popular fruit wine collection includes award winning Blueberry, Cherry, Cranberry & Strawberry. As Donna Adams, one of the owners, was born in Wisconsin her love of cheese is reflected in the wineries fantastic assortment of Midwest cheeses. Winzerwald has been honored as best winery by both local & regional newspapers and magazines three years running. Come visit our “Small Family Winery with Big Tasting Wines” for a cheese & wine pairing or a relaxing Weingarten visit. Prost!
