Our winemaking philosophy is one of patience and taking care to ensure that the fruit that God created is what is most evident in the wine.
Whyte Horse Winery wines are a combination of love and patience. The wines are intended to be wines you would be proud to serve or be served, if they were the only bottle of wine you had in your home. While we realize that every wine can't be a personal favorite, we strive to produce an array of different tastes for you to enjoy and to share. As a result, our wines will complement your food for a wonderful pairing experience.
Whyte Horse uses oak barrel fermentation as often possible. We strive to achieve the proper balance of oak without being overpowering. We like fruit-forward wines. For example, our Chardonnay is malolactic fermented, finished sur-lee, and fermented in 100% French oak barrels. We filter our wines very lightly so as not to remove the aromatics or the mouthfeel from the wine. We currently have fourteen wines, with our holiday wine, Jingles, to be released November 1st. Please watch our website because our quantities do vary and some sell out rather quickly.
We have constructed our facility so that it can easily accommodate future growth. We have a vision for our winery that includes creating a recognizable style of wine, creating an experience for our guests, providing education on the characteristics of wines and how best to enjoy the fruit of the vine. Many of our wines are medal winners from both in- and out-of-state competitions. Indiana is home to the largest wine competition in the country, The Indy International Wine Competition, which is held at Purdue Univeristy in West Lafayette. Winemakers from all over the world submit their wines for judging, as well as to judge this event. Larry has been one of the judges at this competition. He also received his certificate in winemaking from UC Davis: an intensive 185 credit hour, two-year vintner's course based in California. We are very proud of his accomplishments as he continues to strive for excellence. We invite you to visit our winery often. We love hearing your stories as well.
Look forward to seeing you soon..... Salute!
