Indiana wineries are booming! Not just Indiana either, the Tri-State has some great wine to try. And it’s always wine-o’clock at these wineries. Grab your fellow wine-o friends and visit these wineries in and around the Tri-State for tastings, live music, and more.
Before you go, be sure to check out each winery’s Facebook page to see what events they’ll host and to find out their hours.
Monkey Hollow Winery & Distillery
Monkey Hollow in Spencer County offers a full lineup of dry, semi-sweet and sweet wines along with their Monkey Shines – all produced from their 7-acre vineyard. This winery offers free live music from local musicians and a grill menu for a great weekend of ‘wine, shine, music, and meats!’
Blue Heron Winery
Blue Heron Winery in Cannelton, Indiana has an amazing view of the river. You should also check out their Celtic cross! The cross was carved into a 20’x22’x4′ stone already on the hillside. They often have live music and food trucks on-site to pair with their list of dry, semi-medium dry, and sweet (but not too sweet) wines.
Patoka Lake Winery
The Patoka Lake Winery located in Birdseye, IN is a great wine get-away. They are open daily for tastings with their full lineup of wine and wine slushies, but they also offer great lodging for a weekend getaway. We especially want to check out the Sunset Wine Cruise on the lake, painting classes, and all 10 of their slushie machines.
French Lick Winery
If you’re up for a drive just outside the Tri-State, try French Lick Winery. They have a French Lick Red sweet wine that tastes just like juice. If you like that kind of thing, you’ll love it! Try it on one of their wine flights if you make the trip. They also have wine slushies.
Farmer and Frenchman
The Farmer and Frenchman wine list is vast! They include other Kentucky wines and French imports to their list, too. If you’re looking for Farmer and Frenchman’s wines specifically, look for the ‘F&F’ before the wine name. Their wines are an infusion of agrarian tradition and french classics. You’ll want to make time for a great meal while you’re there, trust us.
