PALMYRA, Ind.—Grateful Goat Vineyard & Winery will celebrate its second anniversary by hosting a special event Oct. 19-21.
According to a news release, the event starts each day at noon and runs until the fun stops, and includes live local music, art and food vendors. Attendees receive complimentary wine tastings and a souvenir wine glass.

Owners John and Lindsay Fouts first began experimenting with making their own wine in 2004 as a way to cut costs at their wedding. After traveling the country visiting wineries, they moved from Jeffersonville to a 14-acre property just north of Palmyra farm. Grateful Goat Vineyard & Winery opened Oct. 16, 2010, after years of research and preparation, and their wines have received Gold Medals at the Kentucky State Fair, Silver and Bronze medals at the Indy International Wine Competition (the largest wine competition in the country), and a Double Gold medal for a 4-way tie for Best of Show at a Cellar Masters competition in California.
Grateful Goat uses predominantly locally grown grapes and fruit to make their wines, and they grow two varietals, Steuben and Vidal Blanc, on site.
The vineyard is located at 1404 W. Palmyra Lake Road, just north of Palmyra. For driving directions, click here. Hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 12-7 p.m. For more information, email wine(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)gratefulgoat.com or call (812) 364-4649.
