The eight wineries on the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail are peppered throughout south-central Indiana, but for one night, they’re all in one place. Uncork the Uplands is the signature event of the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail. Consistent with our mission, its goal is to provide a premier educational and wine tasting experience. With the establishment of the Indiana Uplands American Viticultural Area (AVA) in 2013, we also celebrate the recognition of our unique terroir in Southern Indiana, and the quality wine grapes grown within.
This coming year would be the 4th annual event.
Uncork the Uplands 2014 will offer guests the ability to explore the Indiana Uplands’ unique terroir firsthand with a guided tour of Oliver Winery’s Creekbend Vineyard. Home to over 33,000 vines on 54 acres - walk along the rows, taste the grapes and chat with the folks who farm these lands. Learn what makes it unique, wonderful for wine grape growing and what led the region to be recognized as the first all-inclusive American Viticultural Area in Indiana.
Follow that up with the opportunity to explore wines from all nine wineries, shared by the winemakers and owners who have helped build the Indiana wine industry, and amongst them have over 180 years of winemaking expertise. Signature Uplands varietals like Traminette, Chambourcin and Vignoles alongside classic Vinifera, port and dessert wines and more that highlight the wide variety found throughout the Uplands.
Hearty food, live music and a beautiful setting round out this wonderful summer evening!
