It’s a perfect date night! Walk up to the wine tasting bar and ask for the blackberry, blueberry, marathon, half marathon, sprint.... actually ask for anything because I’m sure you’d love everything! It’s in the quaint downtown Chesterton overlooking the iconic downtown clock & gazebo!

Really nice visit with the ladies in the tasting room. Highly knowledgeable and fun to talk to. It's always a good experience when your "sommelier" talks pairing , flavor and nuance. The wines were lovely. Yes, they charge for the tasting. But, any self-respecting place...More
