River City Winery was established in 2009, and is nestled in the Historic Baer Building located in Downtown New Albany, Indiana.
Owner Gary Humphrey’s vision to restore the Baer Building and help revitalize downtown New Albany has been a success. Today, the winery offers up to 30 varieties of wine. From sweet, dry and unique seasonal wines, we produce the best quality wines for everyone. The winemaking area is located in the building’s basement, where all of the wine is produced and bottled. In 2013, Gary purchased Eagle Crest Vineyard, which has 22 acres located in the Indiana Uplands American Viticulture Area (AVA). Currently, there are 4 acres designated to growing 5 varietals; Traminette, Chambourcin, LaCrescent, Vignole and Stueben grapes.
In March 2017, Gary opened the first River City Winery Tasting Room located in Historic Downtown Franklin, Indiana. He has a passion for preserving historic downtowns and it was a great opportunity to answer customer requests for a location closer to Indy. Currently the tasting room is open Wednesday & Thursday 4:00pm-9:00pm. Friday 4:00pm - 11:00pm / Saturday & Sunday 12:00pm-11:00pm
The New Albany location is also a full service restaurant. We offer specialty brick oven pizzas and will be releasing a new summer menu in June 2017. At this time, the Franklin location offers wine tasting only.
