INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The state government’s Indiana Grown project has teamed up with wineries to create the Indiana Grown Wine Trail.
More than two dozen locations are participating. Each puts its own twist on a variety of wine styles. Free trail maps are available at the vineyards and online. At each winery, visitors get a stamp to be added to their maps. When completed, visitors can mail the maps to Indiana Grown for a free wooden wine stopper.
Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch, Indiana’s secretary of agriculture and rural development, issued this statement:
“This trail provides the opportunity to experience all that Indiana’s winemakers have to offer in a fun and exciting way. We have some of the best wineries in the country, and I encourage Hoosiers to go find their new favorite wine.”
Bruce Kettler, Indiana Department of Agriculture director, issued this statement:
“If you enjoy local wine, this trail is for you. This is an excellent way to support local businesses and meet Indiana winemakers, while enjoying some great Indiana-grown wines.”
