Did you know wine was discovered about 6,000 years ago in either Mesopotamia, Palestine/Israel or what is now called Georgia?

Butler Winery In-Town Tasting Room


Since 1983, the Butler Winery has strived to produce high quality, award winning and enjoyable wines. Jim Butler, owner and winemaker, specializes in 12 fine dinner wines, all from Indiana-grown grapes. The winery also produces several specialty dessert and fruit wines. In 1992, Jim established a vineyard at his family's home located nine miles northeast of Bloomington. Winemaking now occurs in the cellar at the vineyard/winery. During your visit to the vineyard, enjoy the beautiful view from the spacious deck adjacent to the the vineyard tasting and sales room. Cellar and vineyard tours are available upon request if the staff is not too busy.


The In-Town Tasting Room is located in a turn-of-the-century home (circa 1910) that reminds you of grandma's. The In-Town shop offers free wine tasting as well as southern Indiana's largest selection of brewing and winemaking supplies.
