Mallow Run Winery:
Mallow Run is the product of years of hard work by John Richardson and his son, Bill, and Bill’s wife, Laura. The first grapes were planted in 2000, with more to follow in subsequent years. The vineyards now cover 8 acres of the family’s 600-acre farm. On the remainder, more than 50,000 bushels of corn and soybeans are still raised each year.

Mallow Run is the product of years of hard work by John Richardson and his son, Bill, and Bill’s wife, Laura. The first grapes were planted in 2000, with more to follow in subsequent years. The vineyards now cover 8 acres of the family’s 600-acre farm. On the remainder, more than 50,000 bushels of corn and soybeans are still raised each year. With expanding vineyards taking root, an aging barn with great potential, and the desire to share our love of fine wines, the decision was quickly made to open our own winery right here on the farm. Nearly 600 vines are growing on each of the eight acres of grapes now planted at Mallow Run (almost 5000 vines!). On those eight acres are eight varieties of grapes putting down roots and searching for sunlight. We grow American and French-hybrid varieties which are more tolerant of cold Indiana winters than more recognizable vinifera varieties, such as Merlot or Chardonnay. These hybrids are essentially crosses of native varieties that thrive in our climate with those vinifera varieties that are well known for high quality wines. The end result is hopefully a new variety with the best traits of each parent. Examples include Chardonel, a Chardonnay hybrid, and Traminette, a relative of Gewürztraminer. In addition to those two, we grow Cayuga, Catawba, Vignoles, Chambourcin, Chancellor, and Leon Millot. Read less
