Art of Wine – Premiere Wine Tasting Event in July

Carmel wine tasting - Chris McGrath, Attorney At Law - McGrath, LLCCarmel’s “Art of Wine” brings the wine tour to you. Take advantage of living in our fine city at the Art of Wine on Saturday, July 20th. The fifth-annual outdoor cultural event takes place Saturday, July 20th at the Carmel Arts and Design District. The wine tasting palooza is being sponsored this year by IU Health North Hospital and caters primarily to the over-21 crowd. (However, the entertainment and gallery browsing are open to all ages.)

Tickets can be purchased in person and will be available at the reasonable cost of $15. Please note this tasting fee will be cash-only. An age-verification checkpoint (i.e., volunteers inspecting your driver’s license) will also be strictly enforced. Once past the high-security entrance, participants will enjoy unlimited wine tasting from wineries such as:

  • Cedar Creek Winery
  • Chateau de Pique
  • Mallow Run Winery
  • Huber’s Orchard, Winery & Vineyards
  • River City Winery
  • Chateau Thomas Winery
  • Madison County Winery
  • Pepper’s Ridge Winery

Participating wineries will also set up booths for anyone wishing to purchase bottles of their favorite samples of wine, so bring extra cash for those special wines you choose to take home. In addition to wine samples, you will find unique wine-inspired art and design exhibits from the surrounding galleries. Food vendors will also be around, but check the event website for more details.
