Listen to our show HERE

It’s that time again! Vintage Indiana Wine and Food Festival  is coming to Military Park on Saturday June 1 and I am excited! This is the largest gathering of Indiana wineries and a great way to get your feet wet if you are a new wine drinker or if you love to revisit old favorites.  There is a crazy great lineup of entertainment, food and wines that will be offered so there is something there for everyone!

As if that is not enough, Jeanette Merritt (AKA Indiana Wine Babe) will be joining me on ATKSRadio on Thursday May 23 at 11 pm on Toginet.com  to talk wine, food pairings, and Indiana wine news.  Double bonus: she will be joining me for the whole show!

How fun is that?!?

For a great recipe for red wine reduction visit my posts from last year before and after my trip to Vintage!

    I really enjoy Easley Winery downtown and the summer series they do. That winery has so much charm and it’s downtown… In the city. Easley isPretty hard to beat in my opinion but but but I have really been enjoying Mallow Run winery this year. They have the neatest events. The soup n wine this winter was great! So Mallow it is! Plus I follow basilmomma on Facebook! I found you on Kira’s page and I am sure glad I did. :-)
