As one of the newest family-owned wineries in Indiana, we currently offer two dozen wines ranging from dry to sweet to accommodate most any palette. We produce wines on location from juice and fresh fruit sourced from various locations in keeping with the "traders" theme.
Our winemaker Bill began making wines as an amateur in the root cellar of our 100+ year old house in historic New Augusta with his first batch of wine back in 1994. After many years of making wines from different fruits, juice, and kits we decided to enter some of them in the Indy International Wine Competition and did very well. Touring wineries throughout Indiana and neighboring states while on vacation, we decided to look into starting our own winery. We acquired the name, Traders Point Winery, and after several years of research and hands on experience we finally selected a location and jumped right in.
Traders Point Winery is named after the small town in the northwest corner of Marion county, located on Lafayette road where it crosses over Eagle Creek. With origins back to the early 1800's, the town is believed to have been named for the location in which Native Americans, fur traders, and later settlers would transact business at the bend of Eagle Creek along an old Indian trail. In 1820, Traders Point was only a one day horse ride to the newly relocated state capital, Indianapolis.
