Wineries, Breweries and Distilleries

Raise a glass to drinking local. Get a taste of Southern Indiana by sipping on a little something at one of our wineries, breweries and distilleries. 

The beautiful Patoka Lake Winery offers a unique assortment of delicious wines, including its signature wine slushies. During the warmer months, take a Sunset Wine Cruise to sample wines from multiple local wineries while cruising on the lake. The winery also offers lodging in either its Winery Suites or Silo Suites, making it the perfect retreat destination. 

French Lick Winery opened in 1995 and has grown to now offer more than 30 different wines. The owners of the winery also operate Spirits of French Lick, an artisan distillery focusing on bourbon, brandy, botanical spirits, and American whiskey. The distillery is one of the few artisan distilleries equipped with its own grain mill on site, complete with a seed cleaner to help produce a cleaner, purer spirit, free from offending flavors.

If wine isn’t your cup of tea, check out one (or multiple) of Southern Indiana’s breweries including St. Benedict’s Brew Works, believed to be the only craft brewery in the country on the grounds of a women’s religious community.
