Here is what you need to know about the Stream Cliff Farm Winery before making a visit!

History of Stream Cliff Farm Winery

The farm itself dates all the way back to 1821, when James Harmon ventured from Maine to collect his father’s land grant in Indiana. On this land, he lived in a hollow tree and kept pigs under the floor to keep him warm. He constructed a large barn and hand-baked all the bricks for a house, which he built during the late 1820s and early 1830s. A blacksmith and crafting business was started years later, and has been in operation for almost half a century. This included the sales of crafts, blacksmith items, corn husk dolls, and dried flowers. An interest in good food, culinary herbs, and flowers led to the establishment of the current-day Stream Cliff Farm Winery.

Twigs & Sprigs Restaurant

Though wine is our preferred main course, the adjoining Twigs & Sprigs Restaurant and Tearoom at Stream Cliff Farm Winery offers daily specials featuring fresh seasonal produce. Favorite menu items include Dill & Rosemary Chicken Salad, Birdseed Pasta Salad, Blueberry Walnut Salad, Cilantro Lime Chicken Sandwich, and Hummingbird Cake. Yum! All items found on the menu are created using herbs from the Stream Cliff Farm Winery gardens. Enjoy the large windows and garden themed dining area while indulging in a delicious fresh meal along with your wine.

Candlelight Dinners

The winery dining room is a great space to enjoy winter lunches, candlelight dinners, and general tastings. With a barrel ceiling and old brick floor, this charming room has a welcoming, warm atmosphere that will draw you in and entice you to stay and enjoy a glass or two. Located in an old building that was once a blacksmith shop, this space has a certain character that ties back into its history. During a candlelight dinner, you will receive a special evening with a romantic glow. The meal will begin on the winery porch or tasting room and include some garden punch and cheese and crackers. Then, you will be seated in the dining room and will receive a salad or soup, your main course, freshly baked bread, and a dessert. These gourmet meals are of course prepared with the freshest ingredients found on the farm. Wines may be purchased by the glass or bottle in the winery before or during dinner!
