Our Community is our Business - Lanthier Winery supports community giving, donating to good causes and volunteering. The winery supports many causes and organizations and is proud to work with so many others that have the same mind set.
Events & Promotions - events and promotions vary month to month and include a range of events in the Loft Gallery to the Garden. Ask our staff about wine promotions on your visit. Holiday wines go on sale the day after Thanksgiving and are available through the end of the year.
Learning Never Gets Old - between workshops, classes, hosting events, and hiring interns from area colleges, the winery is an educational hot spot. Educational areas range from wine, business, gardening, and art to driving a bobcat, event planning, and decorating. The winery strives to continue educating those on staff and those that visit.
Garden of Art & Loft Gallery - only at Lanthier Winery. The Garden of Art and Loft Gallery feature art pieces in a range of forms. From thought out floral layouts in the gardens to indoor and outdoor paintings, sculptures and glass works, our extensive fine art collection is continuously expanding.
IT STARTED WITH A DREAM
It was 1990 when Chris Lanthier and his soon-to-be bride, Tami Hagemier, purchased the property at 123 Mill Street in Historic Madison, Indiana.
As most people know, the best way to start a marriage is to purchase a restoration project that would take 12 months just to remove debris from decades of neglect.
Fast forward 4 years, to 1994, and the winery finally opens its doors and quickly makes its mark in the 'world of wine.'
Presently, the winery is a highly visited tourist destination with many beloved events and promotions that take place throughout the year.
Lanthier Winery doesn't just stick to wine, it also houses the Loft Gallery and one of the Nation's only outdoor fine art galleries. Lanthier Winery brought life to the historic grounds of Mill Street and, like fine wine, continues to improve with age.
