With 4,800 square miles to our name, 17 wineries and 19 vineyards with about 200 acres under cultivation, there’s much to explore. And, there’s room to grow. Nine wineries are members of the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail, a way to get a taste of the Indiana Uplands AVA. An AVA means that the region has a unique blend of geography, soil and climate, which gives its wine defining character. Simply put, the Indiana Uplands is markedly different from its surroundings when it comes to growing grapes. The Indiana Uplands AVA gives our wines a true origin. Vintners have a meaningful way to describe where their wines come from, and wine-drinkers can easily spot local varietals at stores and restaurants.
