AVON, Ind. (Oct. 27, 2021) – Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, a lifestyle brand and one of the nation’s fastest growing upscale casual dining restaurants, will open the doors to Indiana’s third location at 8696 E. U.S. Highway 36 in Avon, Ind., on Monday, Nov. 15, 2021. 

Cooper’s Hawk is an award-winning winery, restaurant, artisan market, and Napa-style tasting room concept with headquarters in Downers Grove, Illinois.
