CLARK COUNTY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- The Federal Government officially accredited the Indiana wine industry on Tuesday.
With this new stamp of approval, workers are out in the vineyard at Huber's Winery, pruning this year’s crop.
"It will definitely put us on the national spotlight, " said Ted Huber of Huber's Winery.
"This bottle was made on this farm. And that's important to a lot of people especially the new 'farm to table' movement throughout the United States. People want to know where things are grown. That this grape was grown on this farm, this wine made on this farm," said Huber.
Jim Pfeiffer, the owner of Turtle Run Winery said, "It puts us on par with Finger Lakes of New York. It puts us on par with some of the great areas of California. It gives us this equal footing that we haven't had before."
Huber's and Turtle Run are a part of the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail. For more information on the trail, click here.
