About this trip idea
Allow 2-3 days.
There’s something romantic about sharing a bottle of wine. Maybe that’s why so many of Indiana’s wineries are run by couples. Share their passion for wine and renew yours as you tour the Indy Wine Trail .
Take home bottles of your favorites
Sample the many varieties on the Indy Wine Trail, then take home bottles or cases of your favorites to fill your own wine racks or cellars. Begin anywhere along the trail you’d like, but we’ll start at Buck Creek Winery located on the southeast side of Indianapolis. Tour their processing room and vineyard, then sample some of their favorites Trilogy, a blend of three native American grapes, and Razzle Dazzle, sweet apple wine blended with raspberry wine.
Then head west to visit Chateau Thomas Winery in Plainfield. This Indiana Artisan winery's newest creation is the world’s only sugar-free sweet wine, Slender. Tour the production room then sample some in the 2,000-square-foot tasting room.
Make your next stop at Cedar Creek Winery in Martinsville. The winery is home to great flavors for any pallette, and the on-site Cedar Creek Brew Co. has great craft beers and delicious food.
Downtown Indianapolis is your next stop at Easley Winery just six blocks from Monument Circle. Enjoy live jazz or bluegrass on certain days of the week.
Quiet dinner and retreat
Enjoy dinner at Oakleys Bistro on Indianapolis’ northwest side. Chef Proprietor Steven Oakley’s passion for creating food is evident in his ever-changing seasonal menu selections. The atmosphere is as creative as the fare with the highlight being the “Kitchen Table” offering a view of the meal preparation area.
As you take the winding lane up to Prairie Guest House , a spacious inn, which features beautiful gardens, large native Indiana trees, a rustic barn and on premise yoga studio. The mid-1800’s Gothic farmhouse has nine large guest rooms, each with private bath and lovely common areas to relax in.. Stay a night or two, making this retreat the perfect end cap to a wonderful day along the Indy Wine Trail.
