Woman accused Of operating illegal winery

The owner of a Greene County winery is facing charges after an investigation by Indiana State Excise Police.

Cheryl Riddle owns the Huckleberry Hill Winery.

The business has two locations, one in Bloomfield, and another in Linton.

Authorities say that the Bloomfield location is properly licensed and permitted but the Linton location is not.

Officers told Riddle in May to stop alcohol operations at the Linton location, but officers say that after complaints they found that in July alcohol was still being sold.

Police say that Riddle at one point admitted to not having permits and selling alcohol at the Linton location but then denied any wrong doing later.

Riddle was arrested earlier this week.
