Overview
More
Patoka Lake Winery is Indiana's first winery with lodging attached to the tasting room. Converted two-story silo suites are among the most unique accommodations in Southern Indiana. Each suite boats of a king sized bed, Jacuzzi tub, fireplace and kitchenette- everything you need for a weekend getaway. Rentals of the winery suites (above the tasting room) or silo suites comes with a complimentary tasting and reserved parking. Our tasting room has a beautiful fireplace for sipping and relaxing with loved ones. While you taste, check out the gift shop for signature items to take home. Our wines range from sweet to dry. We offer multiple flavors of wine slushies year-round and we're open 7 days a week. Our full tasting includes 8 tastes and a souvenir wine glass for $10. Our most popular wine, Bikers Black and Blue has won multiple awards at the Indy International Wine competition in 2016 and 2017.
