Wine Trails and Tales:
Bottles and Buildings
The number of Indiana wineries continues to grow as do the number of guides to use to visit them. A new book offers up a nice short synopsis of each, along with maps, pictures and an easy-to-make recipe that you could create to pair with a particular wine from that winery. Authors Todd and Becky Outcalt are travel enthusiasts who also enjoy wine. They often write for Boomer Magazine about their weekend trips around the Midwest. Oliver Winery continues to lead the pack with easy going approachable wines for the summer. Blueberry Moscato has been a tasting room favorite and is now available in retail stores.

ANOTHER reason to enjoy the handmade breads, cakes, pastries, sandwiches and in house roasted coffees at Perk Up Cafe/Brotgarten on Cornell Avenue: art!! This month you can enjoy "Progress?" a retrospective of recent Broad Ripple construction projects, White River landscapes and other local images by Broad Ripple resident and Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Bill Foley. Bill spent 30 years photographing some of history's most important events for national and international newspapers, magazines and film producers. He offers one-on-one and group seminars, and finishes his teaching career at Marian University in the fall. Bill shoots every day and chronicled much of the new construction underway in the Village. He has thoughtfully selected sequences that anyone who lives, works or plays in the Village will WANT to see and own. All of his work is for sale and Bill is available for commission work, be it portraits, landscapes or hands on classes.
