Seven Indiana Wineries, One Wine Trail
Kick-off weekend June 26 - 27, 2004
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Uplands wine trail, a first in Indiana, will launch on June 26, 2004. The trail is made up of seven Indiana wineries from one region, working together to offer customers the Indiana wine experience. Customers can travel from winery to winery over the course of two days to learn about the various wines produced in the state.
Participating wineries include Butler Winery (Bloomington), Carousel Winery (Mitchell), French Lick Winery (French Lick), Huber Winery (Starlight), Oliver Winery (Bloomington), Turtle Run Winery (Corydon), and Winzerwald Winery (Bristow).
Working cooperatively, the seven wineries will offer special events throughout the year. The kick-off weekend will feature winery tours led by the head winemakers and a wine passport program where visitors receive a free gift after visiting all seven wineries. Additional events are posted on the trail web site at www.indianauplands.com
For those traveling the trail, the participating wineries will offer suggestions for overnight accommodations and meals. Since the trail includes visits to seven wineries, everyone is encouraged to designate a driver and drink responsibly.
The name of the trail originates from the unglaciated plateau running through south central and southern Indiana referred to as the Uplands. The wine trail boundary reaches from Martinsville south to I-64 with highway 231 serving as the western border and I-65 as the eastern most boundary.
