  • Happy for their success and it's nice to have a winery in Monticello but their success has gotten to their heads just a little bit. Now, *some* of their wines are nice but many will find on their list...  read more »

  • We enjoyed the wines and the servers were very nice. After sampling as much as we were allowed (six SMALL tastes), we bought a glass to drink on the patio - a wonderfully sunny Nov afternoon. We also ...  read more »
  • I tried their wines at Farmer's market in w Lafayette IN. Tasted a couple of white wines. It was very fresh and fruity. I asked for something sweet and fruity, the lady at the market picked exactly what I was looking for. She recommended me to try their Wine Margarita. It was very lime-y and sweet. Loved it !
  • Great place to stop and chill. Great staff and great wines.
  • Surprised I didn't take the chance to visit this winery when it opened up in my backyard years ago. Instead I decided to try it after I had moved away from Indiana, and when I was back on vacation. Certainly regret not coming out sooner. When they first built the place I was skeptical as to why anyone would want to build a winery in Monticello, but it's very clear it was a good move. Beautifully little winery with a small vineyard behind the main store. I remember what used to be there before this winery was built. An old shack with corn fields. I used to browse around that area and even played paintball back there a few times around that shack. Anyways on my visit I did some wine tasting, and it was free. Introduced to nearly almost all of their wines. I did paired tasting with my g/f and we split the wines allowing to us to get more tasting. We were there for probably an hour looking around and tasting. Great visit will be back for sure the next time I come back to Monti. If i still lived in Monticello this would be a regular spot for me to get wine. Really wish I would of taken advantage of it when I lived half a block from it. Ended up buying the red table wine Black Beauty, and their white Riesling wine. The Black Beauty is a red dessert wine with a touch of blackberries and sweetness. Don't typically like sugary wines, but this one isn't overly sweetened and taste great. The white Riesling is a semi-dry wine with the aromas of peach and honeysuckle. This was a good white wine. Nothing spectacular, but I would buy it again.
  • What every winery should be...
  • I've ran the gamut on wine, from expensive, hard-to-find imports to $5 bottles found at the local grocer. What's hard to believe is they all, truly all of them, are better than the swill I felt it polite to choke down at Whyte Horse Winery. If you enjoy a wine that's dryer than sand, has an overpowering stench of potpourri (with just that hint of antifreeze to aid the fermentation process), than pick up a bottle of Whyte Horse wine. It doesn't matter which variety, they're all awful, from the first sip to the rest of the glass, which if you're intelligent you've already dumped into the nearest biohazard container. Let's talk about cost, as well. Do yourself a favor and grab up a box of the $10 boxed wine Franzia. You'll spend about a third of the cost of Whyte Horse and, even better, you'll be able to drink it rather than use it to strip paint from your car. The one redeeming quality of Whyte Horse is that the winery is open on Sunday, and thanks to Indiana's tourism laws you can actually buy a bottle to take home on the "Lord's Day." However, you might be better served going to the drugstore and buying rubbing alcohol. While it tastes the same, at least your wallet won't be in as much pain.
