Favorite Wine: Golden Label Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cranberry Crush
Granted, I happened by on a Saturday when there was a bachelorette party already at the tasting bar when I walked in (the second of the day), and the place was jumping even though thunderstorms were abounding in the area earlier in the day. However, I was not disappointed when I bellyed up to the bar. 6 tastings for $5. For my money, this winery excels with their dry wines. I was blown away by their Golden Label Cabernet Sauvignon, which came about by a mistake of their Napa supplier, who told them they couldn't supply them with the grapes they had already paid for. So Buck Creek bought grapes from a vineyard in Sonoma and produced this vintage. Outstanding. I'm a dry wine sort of guy, so I can only say that I loved almost all of their dry wines. I can tell you that their dry reds are better than those of Mallow Run Wineries. Of their sweet wines, I especially enjoyed the Cranberry Crush. Another note - their hard cider wine is exactly that - it is not carbonated, and it's made with locally sourced apples from Indiana. As busy as it was, the wine attendants were still engaging and attentive to everyone. I love the fact that most winery visitors are patient and respectful of others when the place is a mad house.

We stopped here on our way home from the Indy 500 time trials. It's easy to find right off 74. The owner was tending the tasting room when we stopped, and he was very pleasant and had a passion for his wine. My wife loved the Foch, so we brought a bottle home. If your passing by, stop in - it's worth visiting. They also have a very extensive selection, so someting for everyone

Favorite Wine: William Lloyd Reserve 2010
Buck Creek is a terrific Indiana winery located just off the highway, with great signage to get you there very quickly. I appreciated that they were open at 10am as I was driving through the area, and that, as a family-owned winery, I had the great pleasure of meeting the winemaker's mother in law. A delightful lady who walked us through all the dry reds. They buy grapes from California, but they make terrific estate wines from Chambourcin, Corot Noir. Very affordable and friendly winery.

Favorite Wine: Pinot Grigio
Loved this winery. Employees were very friendly. The wines I tasted were very good. The best variety of wines of any winery I have been to in Indiana. Liked the Pinot Noir and the Reserve Chardonnay but the Pinot Grigio was my favorite.

Favorite Wine: Bally Hoo, Marechal Foch
I have tasted the wines here, and I like them, especially Bally Hoo (a semi-sweet or off-dry red that has hints of plum) and Marechal Foch (a semi-dry red).
