At Turtle Run Winery, our motto is to "Produce exceptional quality wine that goes with food and friends." With over 30 wines available for free tastings, it's easy to find a wine you like. And, if you like sweet wines, we have a twist for you -- no sugar added, the international standard for making wine! Sweetness naturally from the grapes provides a clean, refreshing, fruit forward taste that's easy to enjoy. For dry wine folks, we've got you covered too! Through intricate barrel aging and blending, we are bringing back to your taste buds traditional styles of excellence from days gone by, including non-vintage wines!International award winning wine, incredibly detailed winery tours, a friendly staff interested in finding wines you like, picnic areas and wine appreciation classes and first class concerts on Sundays provide a lot of enjoyment and knowledge to you. Find out why Jim Pfeiffer, owner, winemaker, and professor of wine, figured out in the 1980's that Southern Indiana was the place to be to grow wonderful grapes to make exceptional quality wine that goes with food and friends!

We went to Turtle Run for wine tastings as our son was home from college. He had recently turned 21 and he chose Turtle Run for his first winery tastings. Jim, the owner did our tastings and these generous tastings were free, as usual. We love quality dry wine, and Jim makes outstanding wines to suit every palate. He steers... More

I visited this winery with my mom while I was in town. Unfortunately it was rainy the day we went, so I didn't get to get out and get photos, which I was hoping for, but the place was very pretty. It is a pretty small place. We did a wine tasting and bought 2 bottles each. My mom likes... More

Jim is the most knowledgable person I have ever talked to about wine. Love the fact he doesn't add sugar to his wine. When I drink Turtle Run wine I feel like I'm drinking something healthy. All the wines I tried and bought were really good and I will definitely be back.

We visited Turtle Run on a hot Sunday afternoon. A jazz band was playing outside during our entire visit. We noticed several families with children enjoying the music and a picnic lunch. Most guests seemed to have brought their own chairs. But there were a few tables available too. The winery itself was not particularly attractive. The tasting took place... More

Hi Candice, Thanks for stopping by Turtle Run Winery last Sunday and catching the jazz concert. And definitely thanks for mentioning that yes, we're pretty well stuck with a good ol' pole barn for a winery. Yeah, it's hard to dress it up. So what we try to do is work diligently on creating a naturally manicured setting with a... More

My husband I visited this winery on the way to a relatives house. We were so glad we stopped by. The view is magnificent, the wine was awesome and the people were salt of the earth!

I love this beautiful winery. The people are very sweet and they truly know their wines, and the owners mother is a true sweetheart and very helpful. If you are ever in the Fort Knox area, it's truly worth the drive for some wonderful wine...with no sugar added.

Love this winery! It's simple and not a petting zoo or any of that road side type attraction. Staff are the best, very warm and professional. Weekend concerts are a great time to come prepared, lawn chair, cheese and crackers or snacks. Have been several times and each time has been well worth it.

Relax with a bottle of wine and enjoy the free summer concerts. Bring a chair and perhaps some cheese and fruit and purchase a bottle of wine and you have an inexpensive day of entertainment. The town of Corydon is only 8 miles away which houses the first Indiana state Capitol building and the site of John Hunt Morgan's Civil... More
