A Day at Hubers

A couple of weeks ago, I was able to take a tour of Huber's Orchard and Winery. Huber's is nestled in the town of Starlight, Indiana just miles from Kentucky. Over the last few generations, Huber's has evolved from the original German family farm settlement to a year round agritourism destination offering wines, fresh produce, Christmas trees, and even a petting zoo for the kids!

When we first arrived, we entered the main building that houses the cafe, gift shop and several banquet rooms which are perfectly suited for beautiful weddings.






After a tour of the facilities, we went downstairs to see where the wine is aged.


Next, we moved on to the ice cream shop. WARNING: If you think you like ice cream now, just wait until you try their pumpkin ice cream!! It is to die for. Their chocolate peanut butter isn't too shabby either :)



The cheese on site is from Fair Oaks, also located in Indiana. 
After checking out the ice cream and cheese, we moved on to produce. They still had tons of apples, jams, jellies and butters for sale. 



When we were there, they were setting out the Christmas trees they were getting ready to sell.




Then we moved on to the best part....wine tasting!




The tasting room is the original hay loft! Not only is the wine fantastic, but it really is one of the best atmospheres as well.  As the day was winding down, I picked up a few bottles of wine to take home. Some we drank at Thanksgiving, others will be Christmas presents. (Did you see the tree-shaped bottles in the picture above? How cool is that??)  If you get a chance, make sure you visit Huber's in Starlight, Indiana for some amazing Hoosier products. 

Can't wait to get down to Huber's? How about a $50 gift certificate to spend there?? Head on over to Indiana Family of Farmers for a chance to win and more information about Hubers!
