Nicknamed “The Wine Doctor,” the founder of Chateau Thomas Winery is Dr. Charles Thomas, a retired OB/GYN who spent years working in Indianapolis health and has delivered thousands of babies around Indy throughout his career. Dr. Thomas began making wine as a hobby and decided to expand his passion for wine into a Plainfield business in 1984. Now, the winery is celebrating their 25 year anniversary. The winery’s long history has become a rich part of Indianapolis culture.
Chateau Thomas Winery products are all made from west coast Vinifera grapes, grown in California, Oregon and Washington state. The grapes are shipped to the winery, where the winemaking process continues. The grapes are fermented, bottled and sold at the Plainfield, Indiana facility, located near the Indianapolis International Airport.
