Indian Bear Winery-Knox County, Ohio’s First Winery

Indian Bear Winery is located on over 200 acres of beautiful countryside. Come taste our wines in the rustic yet cozy tasting room or a glass in our dining room featuring a large stone fireplace and views of the vineyard, lake and lodge property. Private and semi-private space will also be available for weddings and other special events. We even feature a special area with loft seating. You may also enjoy the outdoors on our large patio, the two story covered deck, or around our large fire pit area.

Our private “Barrel Room” upstairs at the winery.

Guests will enjoy a variety of wine styles including estate bottled Ohio varietals, sweet and semi-sweet fruit wine, and full bodied classic red and white selections all produced on site. We also feature “Roscoe’s Red”, a delicious Red blend, and gold medal winning wine named after the lovable beagle that would often come visit during our guests stay.


And come visit our vineyard to see the source of some of our wines.

We grow Concord, Vidal and Seyval Varietals in our two acre vineyard.
