Turtle Run Winery

Delight in history and wine at Turtle Run Winery, Harrison County’s oldest vineyard. Vast rows of exceptionally cultivated grapes immediately transport visitors into Southern Indiana wine country.

Located in historic Corydon, they specialize in homegrown red and white grape varieties, including award-winning hybrid blends.

Enjoy wine and bring snacks or feast on grilled fare on-site when available.

Sweet wine drinkers can revel in the fact that the sweetness in their products does not come from added sugar. Instead, Turtle Run uses a groundbreaking process they developed called “sequential fermentation.” Find out more when you try their delicious wine and shop Turtle Run craft vintages.
