Easley Winery Favorites

We've spent a few really fun Saturday afternoons at the Easley Winery. It's where my bachelorette party started with a tour and tasting and where we took my parents one afternoon while they were in town.

It's one of our favorite wineries in Indy, and here are a few of our favorite wines there. No wonder we never leave without a case!

2005 Governor's Pinot Grigio Reserve

2004 Governor's Chardonnay Reserve
Rich and full taste
Pairing: gyros

Lighter beaujolais style red wine

Medium bodied, smooth with balanced tannins

Semi-Dry Wines:

Spicy and clean, tropical fruit flavors

Pink Catawba

Orchestra Red
Beautiful blend of the grapes
