Indian Springs Vineyards

In a June 17 front page article, The Union was unable to adequately describe the entire story behind the current problems at Indian Springs Vineyards. While the details may need to be left to the attorneys for Indian Springs Vineyards and their bank, I think it is important that we all remember that there are always two sides to every story.

Indian Springs Vineyard has been an important contributor to the community in more than just offering fair and loyal employment, as a tax base from the sale of their excellent products, and as a tourist attraction. Equally important, Indian Springs Vineyards has also supported many local non-profit organizations with wine donations for fund-raising events and has held concerts to benefit non-profits, indeed raising thousands of dollars in support.

These are good people. It hurts us all when unfortunate situations threaten our local businesses and friends. It’s time to offer support and hope that they will soon recover from the circumstances that have created a very difficult situation.
