Briali Vineyards and Winery

Briali Vineyards and Winery

A strong dedication to environmental care and respect for nature led to the opening of Briali Vineyards in the fall of 2012. Owners Brian and Alicia began planting and nurturing 11 varieties of grapevines using biodynamic techniques, which is an advanced form of organic farming. Briali Vineyards and Winery is located on the gently rolling hills of Country Meadows Golf Course in Fremont, near the Indiana Toll Road. Winter hours are noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday. Summer hours are seven days a week. Tastings are $5 for six one-ounce pours.

This guide should be used along with the Steuben County Historical Tour brochure, which contains a map to all the sites. This guide and the brochures are available at area antique shops, local libraries and at the Steuben County Tourism Bureau. It’s also downloadable at www.lakes101.org. The sites chosen herein are a sampling of historical sites across Steuben County. They were chosen based on historical significance, visibility and available information. Some areas have their own local historical interest groups, such as the Angola Historic Preservation Commission (210 N. Public Square, Angola) and the Fremont Historical Society (102 W. Toledo St., Fremont). In Orland, the Joyce Public Library has a copy of the recent book The History of Orland. It is worth noting that some areas have more sites than listed here. Angola's historical tour will likely add to our list by including the restored Brokaw Theatre, the wedding chapel behind the First Congregational United Church of Christ and the old Opera House. In addition, the recent book A History of Lake James contains a history of Pokagon State Park, which has a number of structures built by the Civilian Conservation Corps.

 

We encourage you to embark on your tour by consulting the map and visiting sites in close proximity to each other. Suggestions regarding the sites may be sent to Steuben County Historical Society, c/o Jim Somers, 75 Lane 150C Lake James, Angola, IN 46703.
