Stream Cliff Farm Winery opens for their 2013 season today, kicking off a miniature, weeklong celebration. From now until April 7, as a part of the winery opening and their customer appreciation days, the farm will offer specials on wines and plants. To celebrate the opening day, the winery will offer a free sample of strawberry wine punch made with their Bareback wine. New this season, they will also have their wine cellar room open to the public. They will have the room open today and the next few days so that guests can get a sneak peek at the newly renovated location that can be rented for parties, events and meetings.
The winery is open for warm season hours – now until Oct. 20 – Wednesday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays noon to 4 p.m. The winery is located in southeastern Indiana, at 8225 South County Road 90 West, Commiskey, Ind.
Stream Cliff offers 18-20 wines per season, most with a horse or historic name. Red wines they offer include the Running Horse Red, a Merlot; Thunderhoof, a Cabernet Franc; and Rawhide, Pinot Noir. Some whites on their list include the Spotted Horse, a Riesling, and Golden Gallop, Sauginon blanc. They also offer several fruit wines including blackberry, raspberry, apple, peach and cranberry.
The winery sits in an old blacksmith shop at the Stream Cliff Herb Farm. The farm has a rich history, and claims to be Indiana’s oldest herb farm. In addition to the winery, there is a tea room and garden on location for visitors to purchase meals or plants. The winery is unique from others in Indiana because workers try to pair their wines with various herbs for a unique flavor experience. They also offer cooking classes throughout the season to help pair wines with food and learn about recipes that use both wine and herbs.
