Patoka Lake Winery offers wines for nearly every taste...dry, semi-dry, semi-sweet, sweet, reds, whites and fruit wines. We are bottling some wines, and others are barrel aging, but we will have more than fifteen varieties of artisan and classic wines including Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling, Peach, Cherry, Blackberry, and other fruit wines. (See the full list below the slideshow.)
In 2016 we entered four wines into the Indy International Wine Competition, and they all won! Earning gold medals were our Captains' Chardonnay, and our Biker's Black and Blue. Our Riesling and Das Apfel Riesling both won silver medals. At the 2017 competition our Sunset Red, Lake Sweet, and Biker's Black and Blue were all awarded silver medals.
