Congratulations to Two-EE’s Winery
Two-EE’s Winery, located in Huntington County, recently was named Visit Indiana’s Best Winery Experience of 2016. Eric and Emily Harris established the winery in 2013. Oliver Winery in Bloomington and another local favorite, Country Heritage Winery and Vineyard in LaOtto, rounded out the top three.
“We’re honored for the distinction, and it just tells us that we’re doing things right,” Eric Harris said in a news release. “We are constantly listening to our customers’ feedback; their suggestions for our wine portfolio have helped us grow and expand our offerings. We’re humbled to be in the same class as some of the older and more established wineries.”
For more information, go to www.twoees.com, or better yet go check out Two-EE’s yourself. It’s at 6808 N. US 24 E., Huntington. It’s open daily, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
