The INDY International Wine Competition was held August 4-6 at Purdue University, and winning medals at this show is no small feat. The INDY is the largest independent and scientifically organized wine competition in the United States. Panels of experts and amateurs from around the world conduct a blind judging to choose the winners. This year nearly 2700 commercial entries came from 15 countries and 39 U.S. states. More than 50 wine industry professionals were selected to judge, including winemakers, wine writers, sommeliers, enologists, wine grape growers, chefs, wine distributors, and wine retailers.

Pam and Larry Satek opened Satek Winery in the summer of 2001. This year, the Fremont, Indiana winery will produce approximately 95,000 bottles of wine, with more than 30 varieties. They are open 7 days a week, with free tasting, from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
