Country Heritage Winery and Vineyard is expanding to southern Indiana.
The LaOtto winery announced this week it has acquired Chateau Thomas Winery, which has locations in Plainfield and Nashville. Details of the deal were not disclosed.
Country Heritage wrote in a Facebook post Thursday that it began the process to purchase Chateau Thomas in December, and it has staffed employees at its locations in recent weeks to talk with customers about the upcoming changes.
Country Heritage said Chateau Thomas wine would still be available at the Plainfield and Nashville locations during the transition, but afterward, only Country Heritage wines and hard ciders would be sold there. It’s not clear when the change-over will take place.
Chateau Thomas wines are sold in more than 200 retail locations in Indiana, according to its website. Its popular Slender wine, which it bills on its website as “the world’s first naturally-sweetened carb-free wine,” will be continued under the Country Heritage label, along with the Jug Series wines.
