Welcome to Fruit Hills Winery and Orchard! We are David and Michele Muir and we are opening a new farm winery in Northern Indiana with the help of our son, Nathan, and daughter-in-law, Brittany. Our winery is located 2 miles south of Bristol on State Road 15 on the Judson Fruit Farm. The farm has been in David’s family since 1852 where it began producing fruit around 1898, and we continue growing fruit to this day.

Our newest adventure is the vineyard we planted this summer, where we have planted several varietals such as Traminette, Riesling, and Cabernet Franc. The first crop of these grapes will be ready to be harvested in the fall of 2012. Traminette has been designated as Indiana’s signature wine and is just one of several regional favorites we are offering. This fall, in addition to harvesting and marketing our apple crop, we have also been busy crushing and pressing grapes to make wines that will be showcased as our 2010 vintage starting late next year.

You will be greeted warmly when you visit our brand new building in the scenic fruit hills of Bristol. We have an attractive, and inviting tasting room where you will have the opportunity to sample all of our different wines. You may also step outside onto our large deck, or front porch, and enjoy the view.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
