At Turtle Run, experience the passion of winemaking at it’s fullest. Whether it’s a full bodied red wine, a captivating white, dry, sweet or Port, we put every ounce of passion we have into every wine. With our motto of “exceptional quality wine that goes with food and friends”, you can expect us to deliver a wine that will dazzle your senses! Founded in 2000, Jim Pfeiffer, owner and winemaker, started his studies into wine back in 1988. Having crafted 100’s of wines in his lifetime, at Turtle Run and with 25 wines on our list, we’re sure we can please the most discriminate palates. As a founding member of the oldest wine trail in Indiana, many enjoy hopping on the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail for a great adventure in wine. Our wine quality starts with an unending passion to make the best wines possible. To make those wines, we start with a tremendous site rich with limestone that provides good nutrient flow and great soil drainage. Our high elevation site gently sends the spring frosts below the vineyard ensuring our primary buds will blossom. Next, we ferment and age our wines in only the finest winemaking equipment that exists. Finally, the winemaker's art takes over. That art, a blend of the traditional, the cutting-edge and the “nothing risked, nothing gained” attitude Jim provides, makes for distinctive bottles of wine you may never taste elsewhere. In the end, you may enjoy a straight varietal wine such as Traminette, or a complex blend such as Joe's Jammin' Red. Visiting our winery provides you not only with insight as to how wine is made but the pleasurable experience of wine tasting. As you first step foot the grounds you immediately see our chambourcin vines growing down the driveway. Walking through the winery’s door will place you into the tasting room, but you’ll quickly notice that we placed a direct access into the production area. On most weekends, we’re busy working with the wines. In the fall, you may see us crush the grapes or sampling the new fermentations. In the winter and spring, we may be filtering or blending. During the early summer months, you can bet we’re probably bottling. We’ll be glad to tell you what’s happening and if the timing is right, we welcome you to taste the wines in process. This openness allows us to create a detailed interactive experience for you. Our tasting room staff is very knowledgeable about the wines and will be happy to provide tips and answer your questions. Wine tastings are always free. When tasting wine, it is important to know and understand how your senses of taste and smell have an effect on your taste outcome. For instance, each section of your tongue absorbs and detects flavors differently. Wine enjoyment has a lot to do with your sense of smell. Our glasses are designed to heighten the aromas you’ll smell before tasting the wine, and thus provide you witha broader sensory experience of the wine you’ll taste. With that in mind, excellence in making wine has to shine every time. Read less
