Located in Indianapolis’ still-trendy Cole Noble Commercial Arts District, Easley Winery has been in operation since 1974, serving the city an array of vintages from across their polished wood bar. Attorney Jack Easley opened his namesake winery four decades ago, after lobbying the state for years to loosen their tough alcohol consumption and production laws. Today, the old ice cream factory that Easley bought to house his winery still stands, and the public is encouraged to enjoy the original brick walls and tucked-away rooms while they sip on the latest glass of wine. There are light, smooth bottles to rope in cautious wine drinkers, and robust options like the award-winning Traminette on offer as well, showcasing Easley Winery’s range when it comes to fermenting grapes. Tastings of twenty or more wines are available daily, and occasional summer sessions pair bottles with beats at on-site music events.
