Wine-themed events to enjoy while I’m on spring break

Next week I will not be posting because I will be on spring break. However, I stopped by Wildcat Creek Winery in Lafayette, Ind., so I could give you some ideas of things to do while I’m not posting.

Owners Rick and Kathy Black opened Wildcat Creek in December 2008, but Rick started making wines a couple of years earlier. The winery now offers free wine tastings and tours, indoor and outdoor seating, periodic food and wine pairings and assistance in planning special occasions.

The winery's tasting room is inside a circa 1900 farmhouse.

Tasting room associate Brenna Staton started working for the winery last fall and often prepares the wines for tastings throughout the week. The winery is open every day of the week.

During a tasting, customers can pick up to five wines for their complimentary tasting. And as an extra treat, the winery also gives its visitors a free sample of their Aunt Minnie’s Cherry Tree wine. Since its opening, the winery has gained recognition for its 11 wines.

So if you have a free afternoon, I would definitely recommend checking out this local winery.

Here’s some other things to keep in mind over the next week or so:

  • Remember my post about Chateau de Pique winery a few weeks back? Well, Living Social just debuted a wine tasting deal good at any of their tasting locations.
  • Chateau de Thomas has a variety of events planned for March 11-17, including a wine class, a movie showing and live entertainment.
  • Check out one of Indiana’s many wineries, most of which offer free wine tastings.

Cheers!
