7th Annual Uncork the Uplands
July 29, 2017
Monroe County, Indiana — Mark your calendars for the 7th Annual Uncork the Uplands, the signature event of the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail and AVA (American Viticultural Area). For one night only on Saturday July 29, 2017, wine lovers can enjoy a taste of all nine south-central Indiana Upland Wine Trail wineries, paired with an exquisite farm to table dinner set in Oliver Winery’s beautiful Creekbend Vineyard. Guests will have the opportunity to explore the Indiana Uplands’ unique terroir firsthand through this unique vineyard experience, learn the art of winemaking from award-winning producers and sit amongst the very vines where the area’s finest wines are grown. Taste new and classic varietals, and take a bottle or two of your favorites to relish at home.
The Indiana Uplands Wine Trail is located within the Indiana Uplands American Viticultural Area, a federally recognized grape-growing region established in 2013. The trail wineries include Best Vineyards Winery of Elizabeth; Brown County Winery of Nashville; Butler Winery of Bloomington; French Lick Winery of West Baden Springs; Huber’s Orchard, Winery and Vineyards of Starlight; Oliver Winery of Bloomington; Owen Valley Winery of Spencer, Turtle Run Winery of Corydon and Winzerwald Winery of Bristow.
Creekbend Vineyard’s hilltop location and well-drained limestone soil creates an ideal environment for growing wine grapes that produce signature varietals such as Traminette, Chambourcin and Catawba, as well as rare offerings like Crimson Cabernet and Cabernet Dore. Encompassing 33,000 vines on 54 sprawling, sun-kissed acres, Creekbend wines have gained a national reputation for taste and quality. Like Creekbend, the vineyards of the Indiana Uplands wineries have won the hearts and minds of wine judges and wine writers across the country.
