Winery Tours by the Seat

Top Shelf Tours is now offering winery tours by the seat!

The Central Indiana area has many extraordinary wineries, and now is your chance to visit some of them if you have a smaller group and can’t book an entire bus.

Spend a relaxing Sunday with your friends and make new ones while on one of our buses. The buses have limo-style seating and an excellent bluetooth stereo system to make your ride more enjoyable.

You have your choice to be picked up at Shallo’s Restaurant in Greenwood or Scotty’s Brewhouse downtown.  Also, if you have a lot of people and you’re not too far off our route, we can make special arrangements to pick you up elsewhere.

We’ll visit three wineries in the Central Indiana area. We try not to rush the stops, but keep in mind that due to the distance between the locations, some tours might take longer to complete.

Sampling prices will vary per location but are typically about $5 per person, and some offer them for free. Sample fees are not included. Sit back and relax while your tour driver takes you on a delightful trip you’ll not soon forget. We have no affiliation with any of the wineries that we may visit.

FYI…sometimes the wineries have events that make it necessary for us to make substitutions to our itinerary. We do need at least five people on these tours to make them fun and viable.

Lastly, if you’d like to plan your own itinerary and your own pickup locations and times, rent the entire bus for a custom wine tour!
