Sweet light berry sipping wine, pair with gingered pork steaks, cheesecake or baked chicken.
A true Indiana Wine, Chambourcin grapes do well pearched on the rolling hills of the Ohio River Valley Appellation. A wonderful dry Red Wine similar to a French Beaujolais’, Chambourcin recognizes Mr. Lanthier’s European heritage. Pair with venison, veal & home cooked roasts or grilled steaks.
Always an annual medal winner and customer favorite, this Indiana wine is refreshing and lightly sweet. A Catawba whose name means gathering of blossoms. It's name aptly describes the fragrant bouquet that wifts up from visitors wine glasses. Serve with quiches, grilled trout and battered catfish. If you like Zinfandel you will love Chautauquablumchen.
  Cranberry Grande’
Softly sweet with a "zippy" finish, this cranberry blend is a perfect match to game hen, quail or roasted turkey. Natural choice for holiday feasts, celebrations or hostess gift.
  Festival Cherry
Other Indiana wineries have tried to match this dark cherry blend that has the tantalizing aroma of cherry pie, but smells much sweeter than it finishes. Another gold medal winning wine, Festival Cherry makesa magnificent wine cocktail or cooler and pairs naturally with chocolate.
  Mill Street Red
Sweet and very grapey. Lanthier Winery’s most popular wine. Great served after dinner with sweet treats.
  Mill Street White
Beautifully sweet Niagara, pairs with lamb, chocolate mousse, cheddar cheese dishes and soufflés.
  Rifleport Red
Enjoy the fruitiness of the Chambourcin grape in this semi-sweet red. Excellent with pasta or steak. Released in 2007.
  Rivertown Red
Another gold medal winning Indiana wine, Rivertown Red is a Baco Noir with hints of Oak but without that sometimes "bitter" taste that can sometimes over power a good red wine. Soft and easy on the palate but it still holds well with seasoned foods such as Mexican, Creole, pizza or BBQ.
  Rivertown White
The name reflects the winery's location in Historic Madison Indiana. Rivertown White is the hometime favorite dry white. This award winning Indiana wine is a fruity blend that compliments oriental cuisine, grilled swordfish & oysters Rockefeller or home cooked pork roast & chicken casseroles.
  Rudolph Red
Released annually on Thanksgiving weekend.
  Saint Nicholas Blush
Released annually on Thanksgiving weekend.
  Snowflake White
Released annually on Thanksgiving weekend.
  Strawberry Blush
Fresh delicate berry flavor makes this wine a favorite for entertaining. Excellent with chocolates or cheesecake. Great with grilled chicken.
Lanthier Winery's fruity white was selected to represent the best of Indiana wines along with other award winning Indiana Traminettes when Indiana announced its "Try on Traminette" campaign. The fragrant, delicious, soft wine premiered autumn of 2002 and sells out every year. The Cellarmaster dedicated this fruity, slightly sweet, flowery wine to his beloved wife.
