The Indiana Wine Grape Council and Purdue University started a marketing campaign last year called "Try on Traminette" to draw consumers to Traminette, a white wine known for being floral, fruity and citrusy. The Purdue Wine Grape Team recommended Traminette as the signature varietal wine for the state after years of winegrowing and winemaking experiments across Indiana.

Since then, wineries have been adding it to their offerings, with more than 30 of the state's 54 wineries growing or selling Traminette - up from just 15 two years ago.
