The Indiana Wine Trail
What do rolling hills, river towns, antique & specialty shops, state parks, historic sites, B&B's, galleries and cafes have in common? You'll find them all along the Indiana Wine Trail in Southeastern Indiana! Kick back and enjoy a leisurely drive, stopping along the way to discover the quaint charm of the region and visit seven artisan wineries.
We invite you to visit Indiana Wine Trail's six artisan wineries, each one reflecting the distinct style and personality of the winemaker. Sample their wines and learn how climate, soil conditions and the winemaking process make every vintage a unique experience.
The wineries of the region continue a history and tradition that began two hundred years ago when Swiss immigrants planted vineyards near Vevay. We hope you enjoy your journey through the heart of the Ohio River Valley, the largest designated wine region in America.

A Bit About Us
The Indiana Wine Trail is a group of six family-owned wineries located in the beautiful southeast Indiana area. From quaint country farm settings to historic wine cellars, you will experience our rich history and a variety of wine styles. Open year-round, you can enjoy daily wine tastings and participate in five trail events featuring wine and food pairings. Traditionally each event took place at all of the wineries, but in 2020 the Trail decided to have each of the annual events at one or two host wineries. Souper Saturday, the last Saturday of February will be hosted by Holtkamp Winery; Spring into the Valley, the third weekend of April will be hosted by Ertel Cellars Winery; Indiana Artisan Weekend, the last weekend of July, will be hosted by Stream Cliff Farm Winery and The Ridge Winery; and Fall Haul, the first weekend of November, will be hosted by ALL wineries, and Corks & Cookies, four back to back weekends starting Thanksgiving weekend, will be hosted by Lanthier Winery. Hours of operation vary for each winery. Southeast Indiana is known as the birthplace of the American wine industry. While the Indiana Wine Trail is a newer attraction for southeast Indiana, the history of wineries and wine-making go back hundreds of years in the region. You can learn more about the region's Swiss wine heritage and the immigrants who shaped it by clicking the History tab at the top.
