Indiana Uplands Wine Trail Signature Event

Join us at IU President's Hall for the 9th Annual Uncork the Uplands. Experience the story of the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail wineries and the grapes we grow within the stretch of Southern Indiana we affectionately like to call Indiana’s Wine Country.

Gather with friends, savor regional cuisine and sip on a glass of your favorite wine — all while chatting with the farmers and winemakers who harvest the very best this area has to offer.

Uncork the Uplands is truly a one-of-a kind summer event. One night a year, we gather with eight other wineries of the Indiana Uplands Wine Trail and indulge in a farm-to-table menu focused on regional cuisine.

Tickets include a cocktail hour, all winemaker's pairings, and a multi-course dinner.

NOTE: This event was originally planned to be held at Creekbend Vineyard. Due to excessive heat warnings, the event has been moved to an indoor location.

Uncork the Uplands guests enjoy a multi-course wine dinner.
