Handcrafted Napa wines with a Sarasota connection

Along with a great menu, you’ve gotta have a great wine list. And we’re working on building an amazing one.

Porter Family Vineyards
truly one of our featured wines
Porter Family Vineyards’ 2009 Chardonnay. The Porters live half of the year in Sarasota and spend the other half of the year tending to their grapes in Napa, so we’re proud to have another local connection on our wine list.

Truly one of our featured wines, our selections from Porter Family Vineyards are just outstanding. The Porters live half of the year in Sarasota and spend the other half of the year tending to their grapes in Napa, so we’re proud to have another local connection on the wine list. Chef Steve met founder Tom Porter when Tom was a guest at Mattison’s Steak House years ago. They got to be good friends, bonding over a love of great wine and food and Chef even prepared wine dinners at the Porters’ home.

Since Tom purchased his winery in Napa he’s become one of the finest wine producers. We really appreciate that they make very small amounts of their handcrafted wines, which shows how much love and attention they put into it.

Naturally we’re excited to feature Porter Family Vineyards selections as part of our unique wine by the glass program: their 2006 Syrah and 2006 Sandpiper (a cab blend). You can also try their 2009 Chardonnay and 2005 Cabernet by the bottle, but the biggest Porter wine we’ll have is called Time. Tom produced just 24 cases of Time, an estate-grown reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, and we’ll be featuring a few on our Captain’s List.

Tom’s already grown a solid Sarasota following for his wines so we know they’ll fit right in at Indigenous. Start your night off with some of Chef’s braised short ribs, for example, order the 2005 Cab and follow it with our skirt steak or pork belly. It will be “just killer,” according to Steve. Looking forward to enjoying it with you soon!
