In mid-June 2014, eastern Indiana and western Ohio will welcome thirsty tourists with the launch of the Heartland Wine & Ale Trail, Indiana’s first such trail.
Visitors to the local wineries and craft beer establishments will find their experience to be a refreshing retreat offering unique, personal experiences for both the wine and ale enthusiasts. All of the wineries and breweries are family-owned and are small production enterprises where tasting means talking directly with the owner, winemaker or brewmaster.
It’s all about quality, not quantity, along the Heartland Wine & Ale Trail.
There will be 10 stops along the trail:
- J & J Winery in Richmond.
- Big Dawg Brew Haus in Richmond.
- New Boswell Brewery in Richmond.
- Campbell House Brewery & Inn in Richmond.
- Roscoe’s Tap Room in Richmond.
- Wolves Head Brewery in Muncie.
- Wilson Winery in Modoc.
- Kennedy Vineyard in New Madison, OH.
- The Winery in Versailles, OH.
- Quarter Barrel Brewery & Tap Room in Oxford, OH.
Visitors can pick up an official trail passport map at any of the above locations. The Passport is the ticket to great benefits and discounts along the trail. The Passport needs to be validated at each stop noted on the passport to be eligible for a commemorative keepsake. The passport can be turned in at the last stop to receive the memento.
Spend a couple of days or a weekend winding through the charming towns of eastern Indiana and western Ohio to visit these ten locally-owned wineries and breweries. The Heartland Wine & Ale Trail is easily accessible from I-70 and US Highways 40, 35, and 27.
