If you like to support local and you enjoy wine, then I have the perfect event for you: Vintage Indiana. The 16th annual event will be held June 6 at Military Park in downtown Indy.There will be more than 300 wines from 30 Indiana wineries and you can sample, buy by the bottle (or case) while dining on some cuisine from local restaurants and food trucks. In addition, guests can learn the art of pairing wine and food during demonstrations.And one final mention ... enjoy the music of Indy favorites Zanna-Doo, Living Proof and Jennie DeVoe.
So, the details:
- The festival is limited to adults 21 and older (guests must provide identification to enter).
- Advance tickets are available for $25 at participating wineries. They will be $35 at the gate. A portion of each ticket sold will benefit Dots in Blue Water, a northern Indiana organization that provides clean drinking water to Haiti and other developing countries.
- Designated drivers can attend for $10 and will be provided with unlimited water and soft drinks for free.
