Anderson's is a Labor of Love

 

You may remember that Anderson’s began as an orchard in 1927 developed by the Anderson Family.  In 1994, David Lundstrom took it over.  He maintained the orchard for nearly a decade until he was able to replace the aging fruit trees with grape vines.  This was the beginning of Anderson’s Winery and Vineyard. 

In 2010, during a trip to Napa Valley, walking around the quaint, little town of St. Helena, we started talking about how fun it would be to open a winery in Valparaiso.  Already busy with Aberdeen Manor Ballroom and Event Center, this dream was always something that remained in the back of our minds.

In March of 2018, that vision finally became a reality when we purchased Anderson’s Winery.  It has been an eventful year and we think it shows in the changes to the tasting room and the entire 42 acre property.  Showers, corporate functions, and weddings are now taking place in the garden and greenhouse outside of the winery and in the new indoor party space. 

Anderson’s Winery and Vineyard is located on the highest ridge in Porter County called the Moraine Ridge which is ideal for growing grapes.  Much time and energy has already been put into the grape vines in hopes that one day they will thrive again and we will be able to make estate wines again. 

 

We would love to hear about your winery experiences, picnic mishaps and celebrations at the winery!  Connect with us on facebook or instagram below or send us an email and we'll share it on our wine blog.  Cheers!
