Easley Winery began as the dream and vision of Jack & Joan Easley in the late 1960’s. Making wines as a hobby in their basement in Indianapolis, Jack and Joan dreamed of growing grapes and making wine in Indiana. Jack was an attorney and Joan owned her own market research business. After learning it was illegal to make and sell wine in Indiana, they invested in a small vineyard in southern Michigan. The long drives on poor roads quickly became old, and Jack & Joan decided to see if the Indiana prohibition laws could be changed. Fortunately, there were other dreamers in Indiana such as Karl Banholzer, Mike & Liz Mancuso, Mary & William Oliver, Ben & Lee Sparks and Dr. Don McDaniel.
From 1991 until 2006, our Owner and Vintner Jeff Durm grew grapes, sold grapes, and made wine in his basement. In April of 2006 we opened our doors to the public and began to share his efforts with the world. We’ve won 148 Medals at the Indy International Wine Competition along with numerous other awards.
- We have two separate vineyards that we planted and we personally manage in Shelby County, Indiana. We started planting vines in 2014 with approximately an acre, on our home property in New Palestine that year. In the spring of 2015, we added an acre and a half to that vineyard, (now known as the north vineyard), and an acre on our property in Pleasantview, (now known as the south vineyard). Spring of 2016 came and we added on again. This time, about a half acre to the north vineyard. The fall of 2016 was our very first harvest. Small, but very exciting. The north vineyard was added on in the spring of 2017. Between our two vineyards, we have 5 acres of vines and several different varietals.
About Our Company- Indy Trolley
The idea for the company of Indy Trolley took root in 2012, when Jack Carr Boyd, a well-known and respected real estate broker who has lived in Indianapolis and central Indiana his entire life, was in San Francisco riding the streetcars. He thought- why not bring an authentic, nostalgic rail trolley car to Indianapolis, Indiana? The search began and Indy Trolley was born.
Indy Trolley is ideal for wedding transportation, brewery tours, prom transportation, Christmas light tours, wine tours in Indianapolis, a fun day on the trolley, wine tours, having a girls’ night out, brewery tours, as well as those special occasions that beg for a memorable experience from beginning to end. Jack says “Interestingly enough, oftentimes events begin and end by guests being transported on a mundane, utilitarian vehicle that offers nothing different than bus service.” Our Indianapolis wine tours strive to be the most memorable and fun way to experience wineries throughout the Indy metro!
