Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Wine Tasting: How does it work? How much does it cost? Do I have to make a reservation?
Q: Can I bring my dog?
Q: Do you have anything else to drink besides wine?
A: We make a selection of Hard Ciders, and serve sodas and bottled water. We operate under an “Indiana Farm Winery Permit” and legally CANNOT sell alcohol that doesn’t have our label on it (like beer). That same law prohibits us from having other vendors on the property selling non-Mallow Run alcohol (like beer). And, that same law prohibits our customers from bringing alcohol onto the property that isn’t Mallow Run made (like beer). If it isn’t Mallow Run alcohol, legally we can’t sell it, and you can’t bring it.
But…you really should take us up on a free wine tasting and find something you LOVE! We’d love to help you find it.
Q: Do you offer tours? What does a tour include? How long does it last? How can I arrange a tour?
Q: It's looking rainy/hot. Can I bring my pop-up tent/canopy/beach umbrella with me to your Saturday evening summer concert?
Q: Is Mallow Run Winery open to 21+ only?
Q: Can I reserve tables in the tasting room or a space / picnic table(s) outside for my group outing/party?
A: We do not reserve tables (inside or outside) or space during our regular operating hours. All tables and space are on a first come, first serve basis. We also reserve the right to ask that tables are released and not “held” by one or two people for a large group if that group does not show within 30 minutes. If you are planning a special birthday party, bachelorette party, etc. we’d love for you to consider renting the tasting room after-hours for a special private event! You can find more information on our Private Events page.
Q: Do you have a restaurant? Is there food available to purchase? Can I bring my own?
A: We do not have a restaurant. We do have a deli fridge in our tasting room that sells assorted cheeses, cheese plates and charcuterie boxes, among other snacks. For our weekend events during the summer, we have several food trucks on site and our outdoor bar, The Shack, sells light summer snacks on Sundays! During our Winter Warm-Up weekends January-March, you can find us serving up delicious soup every Saturday and Sunday. Customers are welcome to bring in their own snacks, food and non-alcoholic beverages as well.
Q: Can you donate to my fundraiser/silent auction?
A: We love supporting great causes! Please visit our Donations Page for more information.
Q: How does parking work?
A: Monday-Friday, and Sundays, please park in the “upper gravel lot” and the “lower gravel lot.” (Handicap parking is available on the paved section near the deck.) For our bigger Saturday events, the upper gravel lot is completely reserved for handicap parking after 3pm. General parking is in the lower lot, and the alfalfa field south of the winery. If parking attendants are present, please follow their direction. If you need to drop off somebody who has difficulty walking, but you do not have a handicap plate or tag for your vehicle, please let the attendant know and they will direct you to drop that guest off near the winery, then return to the next available spot in the lower lot or field.
Please always enter the gravel drive with the Mallow Run sign at the end. The other gravel drive is private property and not open to customer use. When exiting the winery, please use the same drive with the Mallow Run sign. Please respect the private drive and property near the winery; it is residential and not part of the business.
