In historic Madison Indiana, visitors will find one of my favorite places to spend a relaxing afternoon. Several years ago, my husband and I discovered Thomas Family Winery and since then we try to get to Madison at least a couple of times a year. The atmosphere and ambiance of the 1850’s stable and carriage house invite one to order a glass of wine or cider and sit for a while.
The winery is owned and operated by Steve and Elizabeth Thomas greet visitors to the winery as if they are old friends and after the first visit, they will be. Whenever we stop by, it feels like we’re spending an afternoon with friends. Visitors can sit at the bar, or relax at tables enjoying board games or an assortment of books.
Steve is an excellent winemaker. Wine lovers are pleased with his many selections of whites and reds, both drys and sweet. My personal favorite and what I recommend to you is his hard ciders. Named after his grandfather, Gale’s Hard Cider is put into old barrels, fermented and aged, creating a strong dry cider made in the old Celtic style.
The pub-style winery is an inviting place to visit. Once you do, I’m sure you’ll plan to return.
