The nine wineries on the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail are peppered throughout south-central Indiana, but for one night each year, they’re all in one place: Uncork the Uplands.
Join us for the 3rd Annual Uncork the Uplands: Saturday, July 27, for a chance to sample award-winning wines alongside food from area restaurants and farms. Uncork features two signature events: The Vineyard Tour at Oliver Winery’s Creekbend Vineyard, followed by the Uncork the Uplands Evening Celebration.
Vineyard Tour at Oliver Winery’s Creekbend Vineyard
When: 12 pm-3 pm
Explore the Indiana Uplands’ unique terroir firsthand with an afternoon tour of Oliver Winery’s Creekbend Vineyard. Home to over 33,000 vines on 56 acres—walk along the rows, taste the grapes and chat with the winemakers. Learn what makes it wonderful for wine grape growing and what led the region to be recognized as the first all-inclusive American Viticultural Area in Indiana. Taste signature Uplands varietals like Traminette, Chambourcin, and Vignoles to name a few.
Evening Celebration at Bloomington/Monroe County Convention Center
When: 6 pm-9 pm
Taste wines from all nine wineries, alongside food from Indiana farmers, restaurants, bakeries, and artisans with a focus on fresh foods and a farm-to-table philosophy. Meet the winemakers and owners who have helped build the Indiana wine industry, and amongst them have over 180 years of winemaking expertise. Live music, featured speakers and a chef’s food and wine challenge round out the entertainment along with a silent auction benefiting the Local Growers’ Guild.
