Wineries in and around the Tri-State to hit this fall

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

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.

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.
