Peace Water Winery is now open

Wines from California’s Napa Valley are featured at Peace Water Winery, which hosted its grand opening Feb. 9 at 747 N. College.

The enterprise is owned by Scott and Laura Burton, whose original Peace Water Winery is located in the Carmel Arts and Design District.

The venture is a family affair, with their son, Jordan Rapp, as manager. The family did the design and build-out themselves.

No reservations are needed for individual tastings. Rooms can be closed off to host private tastings or events, with space for as many as 80 people. A patio on the St. Clair St. side of the building will be available in the spring and seat 20 to 30.

Scott Burton described the venture as “Hoosiers making Napa Valley wine for Hoosiers.” The wines, produced at Howell Mountain in Napa County, Calif., are not sold outside of the two Peace Water locations.

Burton said he sees Peace Water as a “natural fit in the Mass Ave Art and Theater District,” adding that the Carmel store is located near Silver in the City’s northern store. “We love the area and wanted to be a part of it.”

Peace Water Winery also features hats, t-shirts and hoodies. Also sold are candles from Unplug Soy Candles based in Fortville, which uses empty Peace Water wine bottles as containers.

Hours are 2 to 10 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 2 to 11 p.m. Fridays, noon to 11 p.m. Saturdays and noon to 7 p.m. Sundays.
