Escape from the cold weather, sample a variety of soups and wines along the trail and stock up with special pricing offers.

The Indiana Wine Trail features seven wineries along and around the beautiful Ohio River Scenic Byway in the rolling hills of southeast Indiana.

What? Did she say seven wineries? Yes, in 2017 the six wineries on the Indiana Wine Trail welcomed Holtkamp Winery and Vineyards in New Alsace as a trail member. You’ll be some of the first to check out the new partner.

Here’s a preview of what’s cookin’ on the trail:

Lanthier Winery is serving Coyote Soup, a southwest proprietary recipe with assorted crackers and pepper cheese. They are offering a February wine special: buy any 5 sweet wines (mix & match if you like) and get one free.

This is a classic soup/stew that the colonists adapted from the Native Peoples.” In addition to special case pricing on 6 bottles, their rustic bakery will offer a special on Colonial “Thirds Bread” (one third corn, rye and wheat).
