Grape Inspirations Winery: Get Inspired With Your Own Vintage

At Grape Inspirations Winery, you can do more than just taste some of the Hoosier state’s sweetest wines; you can even make your own to take with you. Located in Carmel, Indiana, about a 10-minute drive from the north side of Indianapolis, Grape Inspirations is a popular destination for residents of the Circle City.

The only Indiana winery where you can actually make your own wine, Grape Inspirations boasts a wide variety of 40 different wines for your tasting and creating pleasure. After you sample the wines, you can pick which one you would like to make, and the expert staff at Grape Inspirations will help you through the process. After the wine has had a chance to ferment, in four to six weeks, you can come back and design and bottle your new creation.
