The French Lick Winery was established in 1995 and since that time has become one of Indiana's premier wineries. The winery is located in the former Kimball Piano Factory in West Baden, Indiana.
Our award-winning wines are produced on site. Visitors can observe our production facility via observation windows in our tasting room. Owner and vintner, John Doty, takes great pride in the wines made with the expert assistance of Kim Doty, owner and cellarmaster. French Lick wines have received over 250 medals in state, national and international competitions.
Our Heaven's View Vineyard planted in the spring of 1998 is located approximately 20 miles west of the winery on Kim's family Hoosier Homestead Farm in Martin County overlooking the White River valley. The vineyard's 3 1/2 acres is comprised of the first planting of Norton grapes in Indiana, as well as Chambourcin, Traminette, Vidal, and Vincent varietals. These varietals are new to many consumers but they thrive in Indiana where traditional varieties often struggle due to harsh weather to make beautiful wines ranging from dry to sweet come in and give them a try!
