This, in from the Indiana Wine Grape Council’s most recent newsletter:

“Having an American Viticultural Area declared for the Indiana Uplands truly shows just how important our vineyards are to our agriculture industry in Indiana,” said Lt. Governor Sue Ellsperman, who also serves as Indiana’s Secretary of Agriculture. “With over 600 acres of grapes planted in the state, and a significant portion of those planted in the Indiana Uplands AVA, I’m encouraged we will see even more vineyards and wineries take root in the future.”
