A northwest Indiana winery is growing after being acquired earlier this year. Our partners at The Times of Northwest Indiana report the new owners of Shady Creek Winery in Michigan City are investing $2.5 million to increase production capacity and add a new storage facility.

The winery was acquired by the Schwartz family, though financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

The Times reports the new owners plan to boost production from 2,000 gallons per year to 15,000 gallons per year, as well as expand the barrel room, enabling it to age 8,280 gallons of wine annually compared to 420 gallons.

“Adding capacity to the successful winery destination in Northwest Indiana was the only next step,” J.T. Schwartz told the publication. “After acquiring the winery this year, we saw how coveted our wines were and decided to step up the capacity to the next level.”

The new storage facility will also house 100 pallets of wine. The new owners also plan to add more seating space in the winery’s tasting room, expand its retail footprint, and launch new business lines.

Shady Creek Winery ships its wines to 37 states in the U.S.
