I have visited the winery several times. The staff are very nice and helpful. They allow sampling of wines. I was there last week, but they were out of my 2 favorite wines, Strawberry Blush and Blackberry. I will call next time before I visit as it is a 2 hour drive for me. Delicious wines.

Hi Gwen: first let me apologize for the 2 hour drive only to learn we were sold out of your favorite wine. Please give us a call this summer and ask the staff if the Blackberry is back in stock. If so please drop in - tell them Tami offered you a free bottle and explain why. Lanthier Winery is... More

Did some wine tasting and actually like the Festival Cherry. I usually don't care for the very sweet wines but a taste of this with a piece of chocolate was just like eating one of my favorite candy, chocolate covered cherries, delicious!

Great spot for a tasting just steps away from the river in Madison. Bought a delicious bottle of wine (between 20-30$). Check their hours as they closed at 5 on the last Sunday we were there and I missed the bottle of wine I was planning to purchase again. :)

I'm so sorry you stopped by after closing hours. Lanthier Winery is open 10am -5pm every day except Monday and Tuesday. If the winery is closed but you happen to see staff outside and know which wine you need don't hesitate to let them know. Many of our staff have facility keys and can allow you in after hours to...

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. Overall I really... More

Hi Missy- Yes the Festival of Trees is one big, busy, beautiful event. I am very pleased that despite the crowd the staff were friendly and courteous as it can be hectic time with visitors purchasing our holiday wines especially Rudolph Red. I hope you had time to sip a warm sample of mulled Rudy. To me it tastes just... More

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.

What a wonderful review- thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and kind comments. Lanthier Winery is Madison's oldest winery so we've had a little practice at getting it right these last 23 years! Still theres nothing as special as a guest passing along such a nice complement. Please stop in again, anytime - and yes the... More

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
