Wabash Wine Trail launches first promotion
Logansport area wineries have joined forces in a promotional trail that will extend offers to riders of the Polar Bear Express excursions in Logansport and Kokomo.
The Wabash Wine Trail, which is being established through the Mayor’s Office, is endeavoring to become the ninth Indiana wine trail. It bands together eight wineries in Cass, Fulton, Miami and White counties.
Beginning with the train excursions from Logansport and Kokomo to the North Pole this weekend, riders who present their ticket at the People’s Winery in Logansport will receive a second glass of wine free. Customers at Schnabeltier Winery at U.S. 31 and Ind. 25 in Rochester will receive a one-time 10 percent discount through Feb. 18.
Indian Trail Wines in Royal Center, Whyte Horse Winery and FruitShine in Monticello, McClure’s Orchard in Peru and Oak Hill Winery in Converse also are members of the newly-formed trail.
“This is another way visitors to our community and those surrounding us can find out more about us and what we have,” Mayor Dave Kitchell said. “We’re hoping that Indiana wine connoisseurs in particular who visit other wine trails in the state will come visit ours. It’s a vehicle for agritourism in the state and it encourages one-tank trips and staycations that hopefully will bring more tourism dollars to our region.”
Indiana currently has more than 60 wineries.
