The lunch salads are the best I have ever had! The service excellent. There is a lovely winery though I don't drink. Best of all there is a nursery with many plants to buy and a garden to walk through. 10 of 10 for us.

My husband and I along with friends visited this winery as apart of the Indiana Wine Trail. This place is HUGE and you could easily spend a couple hours here. We visited the day before Mother's Day (not the best idea) and the weather was gorgeous! It was mid afternoon and bustling with people doing wine tastings, eating lunch, and purchasing plants at their huge greenhouse. After we toured the gardens, gift shop, chapel, greenhouse, and antique shop, we were hoping to grab a bite to eat at their restaurant Twigs and Sprigs, but the waiting list was 2 pages long! However, that was only if you wanted to eat inside. They also have a covered porch with tables that anyone can grab once they become available. We were fortunate to be able to grab a table and eat lunch. They have a very nice menu with lots to choose from. We enjoyed the salad sampler with several different pasta salads, etc all made with fresh herbs from the garden. They also had some amazing desserts to choose from. One of the most popular is the hummingbird cake which basically tastes like layered banana bread with pineapple and frosted with cream cheese frosting. It was good. At the actual tasting bar, they seemed quite stingy on their wine tastings. You barely got enough to try and they limit you to four. Of course, if they know you are going to be purchasing some wine, I think they will let you try a few more. It was a nice visit.

My cousin and I traveled 2 1/2 hours to take one of the moss hanging basket classes they offered. The class time was from 11 to 1:30 and our class total was 35 participants. We spent the first half hour to 45 minutes in their chapel building where the owner talked about her life experiences, and showed some of the plants that were available in their greenhouses. She then sang two hymns and we were dismissed to go make our baskets. I had anticipated learning how to actually make a moss basket and then choosing a few plants to sit inside of it. The baskets were already made and filled with dirt, but not the green moss - morel like the wheat colored moss. There were three begonia plants sitting on top of each basket, along with a sprig of a filler. The only instruction I heard was to place the filler in the middle. After that, not knowing what else to do, we just stuck our begonias in the planter by digging little holes with our hands (no one told us to bring gardening gloves) and sticking the begonias in. I'm not a fan of begonias, but the basket turned out okay - the actual "making" of the basket took 10 minutes. We did have a nice lunch and the greenhouse plants were amazing. But all in all, not worth driving 2 1/2 hours to not really learn anything about truly making a moss hanging basket.

There is a whole lot going on here! There is a restaurant (didn't eat there), winery (great wine; bought at least 4 bottles), antiques, and a couple of shops. Site is well maintained. Winery staff was very pleasant. Wine was a little higher than a previous winery we had visited but that might have been because there is so much other stuff going on at this location. Wine was reasonably priced and very good. Also bought a jar of preserves there which is excellent. The preserves are not made onsite. Following GPS directions might get you in trouble as the road will run out and you will be looking at a significant stream. If coming from Madison take Hwy 7 to westbound 250 and turn right (northbound) on Hwy 3. The winery is marked by a sign 1/3 of a mile north of the town of Commiskey.

Everything is very special. Food delicious and creative. The plants are spectacular. I have been in a lot of greenhouses and I must say that I have never seen the quality and quantity of plants. I am so sad because I can't take any home to Florida. Interesting things to see. This is a don't miss venue and I will be back.
