At Turtle Run Winery, our motto is to "Produce exceptional quality wine that goes with food and friends." With over 30 wines available for free tastings, it's easy to find a wine you like. And, if you like sweet wines, we have a twist for you -- no sugar added, the international standard for making wine! Sweetness naturally from the grapes provides a clean, refreshing, fruit forward taste that's easy to enjoy. For dry wine folks, we've got you covered too! Through intricate barrel aging and blending, we are bringing back to your taste buds traditional styles of excellence from days gone by, including non-vintage wines!International award winning wine, incredibly detailed winery tours, a friendly staff interested in finding wines you like, picnic areas and wine appreciation classes and first class concerts on Sundays provide a lot of enjoyment and knowledge to you. Find out why Jim Pfeiffer, owner, winemaker, and professor of wine, figured out in the 1980's that Southern Indiana was the place to be to grow wonderful grapes to make exceptional quality wine that goes with food and friends!

Been awhile since I've been here. The scenery here is pretty nice and the wines are pretty good. Not a large winery, and it was unusual that the wine sampling was in the back. My favorite of the bunch was the Crossed My Mind, a sweet and tasty wine. Well worth getting off Interstate 64 to visit.

Visited here with some friends and really enjoyed ourselves. The winery is a little quaint and off the beaten path, but definitely worth the drive. Laura was super nice and answered every possible question we could have had. There were probably 30 wines to taste from. They are very unique wines I might add! I even bought a few bottles... More

Turtle Run is a unique winery, it's the first winery I've been to that states that they do not add any sugar to any of their wines, only leaving sweetness in their wines by stopping the fermentation process in order to do so. Their list is large in my opinion and they have plenty of dry wines along with sweet... More

Thanks, Apryl D for you nice note on Trip Advisor!! Cool!!! Our no-sugar added way of making sweet wines comes from my studies on European winemaking, in which they are not allowed to back-add sugar into their wines. It was very much emphasized to me in college that not adding sugar was the appropriate and professional way to make sweet... More

This was our second visit to this winery, and both times we really enjoyed our experience here! They have a large selection of excellent wines! We were able to try every wine on their two page list, and the lady who gave us our tasting was great! Even though they were having a concert and were slammed the second time... More

By far the smallest winery we've ever been to. After seeing a few highway signs we decided to stop on the way home with nice weather and some time to kill. It was about 10 minutes off the highway in some farm country. Definitely not a fancy winery like I've seen before however for being so small they sure had... More

This winery is in the hills and very rustic, but the wine is literally the best in Indiana. The Sunday wine concerts include free wine tasting and free bands. You can take your own canopy, chairs, picnic, etc. The staff is great, super friendly.

Oh my goodness! These people treat you like family. And they make amazing wines! That's a win win in my book. The wine sampling is free and informative. You can pick out a favorite bottle and they will bring it out to you in a bucket of ice with a couple glasses to use. We sat outside and enjoyed the... More

While in town my daughter took my wife and I to meet some friends at the Wine Tasting and Entertainment Event at Turtle Run! We brought our own chairs and some snacks to share with others that were there before us. We quickly got seated and enjoyed listening to a GREAT band playing 60's and 70's music. It was a... More

Wonderful place that is off the beaten path but well worth the drive. No frills, just really good wine! Family run operation and beautiful land. They have live music on their patio most weekends and tastings are free!

We arrived 15 minutes before closing time, but we were still given a very nice tasting experience. We got to sample with a lot of information from the wine maker's advice based on our individual taste bud preferences. It was so personalized for my wife's very specific needs and preferences. We will return again with more time to explore and... More
