A new winery is open for business in Huntington County.
Two-EE’s Winery unofficially opened at the end of May, but the grand kick-off of the winery was held Saturday.
The winery boasts a relaxing tasting room, as well as an outdoor patio. Visitors got to do free wine tastings and could even get a tour of the winery production facilities and the vineyard.
One of the owners says their winery will be different from any other around the area. "We've gone out of our way to source really unique, arcane varietals: Ananuca, Tenaught, Teroldego, Nebbiolo, Norton, which is a Native American wine, all these varieties offer something different and unique. It's not your standard Cabernet and Merlot or Shiraz that you can find anywhere in the grocery store. You have to come here for these wines,” said Co-Owner Eric Harris.
Two-EE's is Indiana’s 70th winery. Right now Harris says there are 10 wines on the list, and they are planning on adding five more in the coming months.
