The Wine Trough quenches thirst on the go


By Chris Bavender

Noblesville resident Lacy Clark took a leap to do something many people dream about but few accomplish – leaving a corporate job to follow a passion. Clark owns a food truck called The Wine Trough, which provides wine tastings, wine by the glass, beer, wine-based cocktails and small plates.

“It was the perfect timing for me,” Clark said. “I was just phasing out of one job and getting ready to enjoy the summer with my kiddos. I bought the trailer in May and opened (The Wine Trough) in June 2021.”


Clark started looking for trailers during the COVID-19 pandemic but wanted something unique.

“This was an old paragliding trailer and was the perfect blank canvas for my creation,” she said. “We were up and running with permits in four weeks.”

Clark chose the name The Wine Trough because she loved the rustic vibe and wanted to focus on her passion of being a sommelier.

“We had lots of horse decorations and hand-me-down farm decor from our families, so it just came together,” Clark said.

The Wine Trough prides itself on being “super, super local.”

“Our wine is from a local husband-and-wife company in Noblesville, Country Moon,” Clark said. “Our beer is from all over Indiana, and our spirits are from Indianapolis. We try to buy and source everything that keeps our money here where we live.”

Clark has no regrets about following her dream.

“My kids get to be a part of some events. They have seen me on TV with The Wine Trough twice now and on YouTube, which to them is pretty awesome,” she said. “Plus, my husband and I have traveled together doing this and met some really great people. It’s fun to work.”
