Howard Hewitt – Many a young man dreaming of becoming a doctor, lawyer, or business man finds his way to Wabash College. But not too many young men dream of running a winery find themselves in Crawfordsville.
Mark Easley ’90 grew up in the family wine business and now runs the Easley Winery in Indianapolis. The Wabash history major has really turned his critical thinking skills toward his business and the quality of his wine and watched his winery take off over the past five years.
We’ll be featuring Mark in an alumni profile soon on our web page. Mark and his wife, Meredith, run the 205 N. College Avenue winery. They give tours, conduct tastings, seminars, and even home wine-making education events. Visit the Easley Winery website for more details.
But if you are bit of an oenophile and just can’t wait, Kelli Miller of the winery will be in Crawfordsville Saturday, Dec. 10, conducting a seminar on Easley wines at the IGA Supermarket on Market St. It will not be a tasting, but she will be on hand to talk about the different style wines from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
The Easley wines have come a long way. A personal recommendation includes their Reisling and the oak-aged Cabernet Sauvignon.
