Vintage Indiana (GIVEAWAY)

Every year, there is this really awesome event called Vintage Indiana.  It's a festival of local wines.  It's located at Military Park in downtown Indianapolis.  There are hundreds of wines to taste and buy.  Wineries from all over the state come to show off their best wines - everything from dry, spicy reds to super sweet dessert wines.  Some wineries grow the grapes in Indiana and some produce wine from grapes outside of the state.

The awesome thing about the Indiana wine scene that I've noticed is that it is growing and maturing.  A decade ago, Indiana wines were very focused on sweet wines.  Lots of honey wine and fruit wine but not much complexity.  Now, you will truly find a wine for any and every possible taste preference.

This year, Vintage Indiana is on June 1.  And it's going to be a great day!  Great wine, lots to learn and try, and live music!

Some fun facts (provided to me by Indiana Wines):

  • 30 Indiana wineries will offer samples of over 300 wines. 
  • This is Indiana’s largest wine festival featuring locally crafted wine!
  • Indiana has 69 wineries.  They produce over 1.25 million gallons of wine a year and attract over 2 million visitors.  The 70th winery will open sometime in May! 
  • Adults tickets are $22 in advance at Marsh Supermarkets or online at  $25 at gate
  • Designated Driver tickets are $10 and include unlimited soft drinks and water.  No wine glass or wine samples allowed on this ticket.
  • Kids ages 6-20 are $5.  Under 5 years old are free.

If you want to learn more about the event, there are tons of ways to connect!
