(Excerpt from the WBOI spot) Indiana’s growing number of wineries and small vineyards want to make the Hoosier state synonymous with wine country.
Yet, a tricky climate limits what grapes they can grow in-state, and complex regulations limit where they can sell the resulting wines.
So these local wine destinations are finding other ways to make their marks.
At Two-Ee’s Winery near Huntington, the barrels and tanks in the production room are full of juice from grapes you’ve probably never heard of.
Wine-maker Eric Harris rattles them off: Tannat, Aglianico, Norton and Dolcetto bought from California, and Marquette, Traminette and Cayuga from Indiana, among others.
