Tad’s Favorites, Louisville’s Finest: Huber’s Orchard and Winery

Published on Jan 6, 2016 at 10:00 am in Fun Stuff.

Living and working in Louisville is often a balancing act of finding time to appreciate the finer points in life while keeping a busy schedule that revolves around rush hour traffic, business deadlines, and other daily responsibilities. The good news is that there isn’t a shortage of ways to enjoy the finer points of life in Louisville. Every inch of the city teems with richness, an exquisite taste of classic, Americana-inspired history, and the possibility for new adventures.

As someone who’s lived and worked in Louisville my entire life, I thought I’d share some of my favorite places in Louisville and shine a light on many of the finer establishments hidden within the city’s bustling streets. These suggestions will be ideal for Louisville residents who are new to the area as well as those who have lived here for years and maybe just haven’t explored every nook and cranny.

Today I’m going to talk about a haven of old world, rustic charm that’s right across from the Ohio River. Just north of Louisville you’ll travel into Southern Indiana where you’ll find Huber’s Orchard and Winery, a 600-acre playground for anyone who loves homegrown food, good times, and fantastic wine.

Huber’s Orchard & Winery was settled by Simon Huber in 1843. Back then, it started as an 80-acre farm. Now the orchard produces over 400,000 pounds of grapes per year. 18 different varieties of grapes are grown to provide a delicious variety of naturally blended wines. Grapes aren’t the only thing grown at Huber’s. Fruits, vegetables, Christmas trees, and pumpkins make up the rest of the expansive fields.

Indiana’s very first distillery—the Starlight Distillery—is found at Huber’s Orchard and Winery. Huber’s was one of the seven original wineries on the very first wine trail in Indiana. The winery and farm are both an important piece of Indiana’s—and America’s—heritage and history.

Current-day Huber’s has a bit of something for everyone. Every season of the year brings fresh crops and family-friendly activities for visitors to enjoy. In the Farm Market, visitors can buy freshly grown fruits and produce all year long. In the fall, fresh pumpkins wait to be hand-picked. Going to Huber’s every fall is one of my favorite yearly traditions. The fields of sun-ripened pumpkins are a sight to behold.

The Family Farm Park is another favorite attraction at Huber’s Orchard and Winery. Open during the summer months, families of any age group can enjoy tours of the farm, pedal karts, slides, mazes, tractor rides, farm animals, and mining adventures. The ice cream factory, cheese shop, café, and winery tour are worth visiting all year long. Huber’s is also a popular venue for weddings, school field trips, and more.

If you live in Louisville and haven’t taken the time to explore the area just north of the Ohio River, you owe it to yourself and your family to take a trip to Huber’s Orchard and Winery and experience a rich piece of America’s history while enjoying good food, good times, and the best wine you may ever taste.

Until next time.
