Brown County Winery was established in 1985 by David and Cynthia Schrodt. Dave was a winemaker and had his eye on Nashville, a scenic arts and crafts community in the rolling hills of Southern Indiana. He was sure it would be a prime location for a small winery. Space was rented and production began, producing five wines the first year. It wasn't long before the Schrodts built a winery on their property near Lake Lemon. Dave continued to produce award-winning dry, semi-sweet, and sweet wines from French Hybrid grapes grown in the Midwest and from a variety of berries and apples. The business continued to grow and demand for Brown County wine increased. The original winery was no longer large enough. It was time to expand. – Description from Dragac

    Fruit forward wine but far from jammy. Nice bit of acidity with a smooth tannic finish. I do wonder if this was make with cali grapes. Read More

    Wine review by RandyFisher


  • I once spent 48 hours making a sauce from scratch. It was a classic Sauce Robert that started with a tray full of bones and vegetables. The compound sauce required demi-glace, the rich reduction of beefy goodness that takes a lot of time and effort, and I was determined to use no pre-made ingredients. At the end, gallons of liquid and pounds of ... Read More

  • I began my wine journey mining for hidden gems in little known regions along the east coast of the United States. A common response to many of the wines I shared and wrote about back then went something like this; “What, they make wine there?” In fact, wine is produced in all 50 states, but many people can count on one hand the wines they have t...

  • California "Old Vine" wines, Zinfandel, especially, have been getting a lot of attention in the last few years.  I, certainly, have been paying more attention to them, lately, mostly as a result of the postings of Outthere on some of the historic vineyards in his neck of the woods.  He interested me enough to join the Historic Vineyard Society, ...

  • I had a Pinot Noir, last night, that I have to admit was pretty darned good--Ken Brown 2009 Santa Barbara County.  Since my PN cred is, pretty much, non-existent, others may or may not agree with me on this one, but I liked it.  It had the cherry and slightly woody flavor that I seem to get a lot in Pinot Noir, but it also had substance.  It had...

  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...

  • While traveling through Napa Valley last month I noticed that all the Vineyards I visited had roses planted around their crops. They're planted and watched closely for any early signs of infestation on the land. They monitor the Roses closely and upon early signs of problems, protective measures are taken to make sure the grape vines receive a s...

  • Like Zinfandel, Petite Sirah is primarily a California wine: the Golden State’s long, sunny growing seasons are necessary to ripen Petite Sirah’s substantial tannins and reveal its rich blackberry flavors. The wine’s structure, fruit and inky color make it an excellent blending partner for Zinfandel, red Rhône varieties and even Cabernet Sauvign... Read More
