FRENCH LICK WINERY

French Lick Winery opened for business in 1995 in the Beechwood Mansion in French Lick, just down the road from its current location. Our vineyard is located in Martin County on our Hoosier Homestead Farm and grows 8 varietals which are featured in our estate wines.  As the winery grew and began to produce more varieties, it became evident that we needed more room. In 2004 we began renovations on a spacious section of the Kimball Piano factory and in 2005 we opened French Lick Winery along with the Vintage Café, and large gift shop. Large glass windows line one wall and allow for comfortable viewing of our production area.

The tasting bar is a prominent feature in the building. Trained bartenders lead guests through the expansive list of over 30 different wines, ranging from dry to sweet, fortified and sparkling.  In 2016 we opened Spirits of French Lick, the largest pot still distillery in the state of Indiana.  In 2020 Spirits of French Lick released their Bottled In Bond bourbons and currently have 14 products in the bottle.  

Our wine tastings are $8 for 10 wines and spirit tastings are $8 for 4 spirits.  You are also able to sample our slushies as one of your choices. Please keep in mind that tasting bar selections are subject to change based on seasonal availability. We also offer wine & spirit flights at the table as well as wine slushies and a craft cocktail bar.

Must-try wines:

  • Traminette:  From our Heaven’s View Vineyard, this estate-bottled wine reveals a classic spicy Gewürztraminer aroma with hints of peach, mineral and just a touch of sweetness.
  • Cherry: Our most awarded wine and often called “cherry pie in a glass.” This sweet-tart wine is made from Montmorency cherries. The authentic cherry flavor is smooth without overwhelming, allowing for a rich, fruity experience. Great with, in or as dessert.
  • Chambourcin Rose:  From our Heaven’s View Vineyard, this estate-bottled wine is light and fruity with sweet flavors of strawberry, watermelon, and green grapes.  It is bright and fresh on the tongue and best served cold.
