With over 22,000 votes, the results are in for Visit Indiana’s Best of Indiana Fall awards. Hoosiers were asked to select Indiana’s Best Winery Experience, Best Waterfall and Best Music Festival. The winners are:

  • Best Winery Experience: Two-EE’s Winery, Roanoke
  • Best Waterfall: Cataract Falls, Cataract
  • Best Music Festival: Bean Blossom Blues Fest, Bean Blossom

“We had a record number of people vote online this year, showing that Hoosiers love their state’s natural beauty, great agritourism destinations and fabulous festivals” said Mark Newman, Indiana Office of Tourism Development Executive Director. “We had over a hundred terrific nominees and all of them are worth a visit.”

Nestled on a hillside in Huntington County, Two-EE’s Winery is a relatively new vineyard. It was established in 2013 by Eric and Emily Harris. Eric is the head winemaker and within the first 18 months of opening, he was recognized twice as a rising star of his trade. Voters had many other award-winning wineries to choose from and they named Two-EE’s Winery in Roanoke the Best Winery Experience in Indiana. Oliver Winery (Bloomington) and Country Heritage Winery and Vineyard (LaOtto) rounded out the top three. Steuben County's Satek Winery took seventh place.  View the top ten here.
