They had cleared all the shelves to accommodate some 200 Christmas trees. It was an smorgasbord for they eyes. The only drawback was it was very crowded and a bit of a maze to navigate (to be fair there were lots of people in town for the multiple Christmas events scheduled.) The staff were warm & friendly.

My friends and I buy wine from here all the time. If you are unfamiliar with anything, they will always give you a tasting for free. Lanthier is my favorite winery in Madison, IN. I would definitely recommend it.

Free wine tasting of delicious local wines and a massive display of Christmas trees decorated as part of the local Christmas Festival of Lights display. Charming little place. Wine is made on premises but did not see grape vines on property.

Mary: thanks for the great review. You are right there are no vines on the property unless you count the 3 or four we use on the front of the building or in the street flower beds! Our grapes and juice are brought in from vineyards throughout the midwest- primarily growers in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and New York. Our Cellarmaster... More

On a trip through southern Indiana and stopped for wine tasting. Very helpful in selecting what type of wine we like. They have a great selection of both red and white wi Es. Outdoor gardens look great for Soring, summer and early fall.

Thank you for the kind remarks and I am very glad the staff were able to help you make a wine selection which you truly enjoyed. I'm always so surprised that visitors comment so positively on the gardens this time of year as of course it is fading as winter closes in on southeast Indiana. If you get a chance... More

We had it on our bucket list to stop at a new winery. We were fortunate to find this place. They get the juice from elsewhere but make the wine here. They have a great selection and range of samplings. I was there with my family and we had as many free samplings as we wanted...how nice. The grounds were... More

It was a joy to host you. This is such a wonderful time of year to visit southern Indiana and Madison is especially beautiful as fall colors begin to set along the cliffs of overlooking the Ohio River. I'm especially glad you took advantage of our October special- even though we always offer 20% off case purchases (including mix and... More

Enjoyable visit. I was here visiting Hanover College and enjoyed great conversation with Quinten, who not only referred me to places to visit in the local area but was excellent with the local wine as well.

We spent one weekend in Madison, where we attended the Chautauqua. We were walking back from the event, and we stumbled upon the Lanthier Winery. I was extremely impressed by the layout of the winery and its outdoor garden space. There was ample room for the crowd to sample wine, sit at an outdoor table, or visit one of the... More

I just wanted to say thank you for your kind comments and the gracious review. Although I am one of the owners- my heart and most of my effort is in the garden and with our art collection. Thank you so much for noticing some of the details that others may not. It means a great deal to me personally.... More

I have been there many times in the past usually with my wife. However, today I was by myself only a block away at Lanier Mansion and thought why not go see what they have. I had four different tastings before choosing a semi-sweet wine to take home. They also have a cute garden area that adds to the ambiance... More

Nothing you can't get at your local liquor store. Staff can't explain history or background of each wine. Nothing is local. Out of state wine with local label.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm truly sorry our staff were not able to answer your questions. Perhaps the staff did not understand what you meant by "history" of each wine. Truthfully there is nothing historically significant or meaningful to the public concerning Lanthier Wines. There is no "old recipe", no "historic approach" - just simple award winning wine making.
