  • SOUTHERN INDIANA – The Hoosier Wine Trail announces a March Madness promotion, “Slam Dunk!” which coincides with the NCAA basketball tourney.

    Customers who purchase four or more bottles of wine at individual wineries between March 17 and April 6 will receive a free wine glass. Potentially, if you purchase four bottles of wine at each winery on the trail, you will have a complete setting of eight new wine glasses; thus, the “Slam Dunk!”
