Jacquie’s own Finley Creek Vineyards is the ideal setting for your 2021 event
If Finley Creek Vineyards, located north on Michigan Road (795 north on US 421) in Boone County, Zionsville, isn’t on your radar screen yet, allow us to introduce you to this charming property.
Not only is it spacious and picturesque, but it allows for both inside and outside celebrating. But perhaps most importantly, it’s the place to welcome mouth-watering Indiana-grown food from an award-winning caterer to your celebration!
Let’s begin with the Wedding Barn. Holding an event at Finley Creek’s rustic, yet completely renovated barn can be as casual or chic and artsy as you want. The barn has high-beamed ceilings festooned with electric lights, draped swag curtains at the tall, airy windows, and ornate crystal chandeliers overhead.
Moving to the lovely treed and wild-flowered grounds of Finley Creek, your celebration can be outside as well as inside, depending on your preferences. Outside, there is a large bricked fireplace and fire pit – great for gatherings of friends. There are also large areas for outdoor seating. Even a lovely arched latticework arbor for weddings and celebrations. So if the temperature dips or rain drips, your guests are covered, literally by heading into the party barn without missing a beat.
As the owner of Finley Creek, Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering is more than up to the task of keeping your party deliciously happy. Jacquie’s sustainably sourced, organic meats and produce are just the beginning. Be prepared to be wowed by her pulled pork sliders, paired with Asian slaw, or Chicken Piccata with Nicoise Olives, or Whole Roasted Tenderloin en croute with Wild Mushroom Duxelle. Every course is exceptional, made from scratch, and served at the ideal temperature (from the state-of-the-art kitchen Jacquie designed herself.)
So whether you go all out or low-key, you can’t go wrong with the perfect pairing of Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering at Finley Creek Vineyards.
Give us a call (317-283-2776) to take a tour and begin to plan your 2021 event.
Socially distanced celebrations can feel intimate in the right place
Finley Creek Vineyards makes a perfectly cozy and tranquil setting for your romantic elopement or wedding celebration.
Our five acres are sheltered from the rest of Zionsville by rows of fir trees. The property houses an authentic remodeled vintage party barn for inside celebrations and lush, romantic gardens and a private vineyard outside. Inside, outside, or both -- Finley Creek is just the place to hold a socially distanced gathering – that won’t feel like one.
Finley Creek’s barn is lovely and rustic, creating the feeling of stepping back in time. Our catering kitchen, however, is state-of-the-art, having been designed by Jacquie Bols, owner operator of Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering. That means the best of both worlds – in the ‘old’ and in with the ‘new!’
Earlier this season, we planted hundreds of sunflowers to welcome your guests and provide a bright and sunny backdrop for photos.
Dining al fresco is perfect here – under the trees or under the stars. We have several ideal places to stage a band inside or out. There’s an over-sized fireplace and a gazebo on the grounds, too. And if the weather gets iffy, you can always head into the barn where chandeliers cast a lovely glow.
Celebrate formal or casual, with cocktail tables or five-foot round guest tables for full-course sit down dinners. Go low-key (friends and family) or a little larger (up to 280 guests), there is plenty of room for both here.
And since Jacquie Bols is our amazing caterer, everything we serve will be locally and sustainably sourced, farm fresh, and expertly prepared.
So, go intimate or go large, either way, Finley Creek Vineyards has you covered.
Finley Creek under the stars makes micro weddings hugely romantic!
The trend for micro weddings, elopement celebrations and intimate receptions started out of necessity but has grown trendy quickly.
Finley Creek Vineyards has embraced this most romantic of ideas – perfectly. That’s because we have an awesome Wedding Barn when the time is right for an indoor gathering. And a gorgeous view of the stars (or sunny skies) when you want an outdoor wedding with just your besties and family.
Talk to Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering about planning the details inside or out for groups as small as ten, 25, 40 or 60+. We can help you create the look you envision with an archway of flowers, or a natural view of our vineyard surrounded by wildflowers.
Have a small cocktail celebration or a sit-down dinner inside our shabby chic barn – with antique chandeliers lighting the way.

We do simple or elegant. Wine and beer – to open bar. Light hors d’oeuvres to four-course sit-down dinners.
Vegetarian to farm-raised Indiana beef. And of course, special requirement meals for those who prefer them.
Two hour wedding and receptions to 10 hours. Inside or out. Day or night.
We make small weddings, wedding renewals, anniversary celebrations and receptions… memorable. Let’s talk about what you have in mind.
Finley Creek Vineyards celebrates its first year
Lots of fun summer festivities are happening at Finley Creek Vineyards, now celebrating our first year!
Fans of Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering are happy to host their wedding receptions, family reunions, corporate retreats, and holiday parties in a lovely, rustic setting just 20 minutes from Indy’s Northwest side in Zionsville.
As the private special event venue for Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering, the Finley Creek grounds are just as well appointed and lovely as you would expect for a facility we own.
The main interior Party Barn is definitely a ‘wow!’ The space is plenty large enough for up to 300, but with the lovely flower and vegetable gardens and large oak trees along the rolling countryside just outside the barn, groups are just as happy to enjoy the outside as they do our inside – especially this time of year.
The barn walls are covered with reclaimed rustic barn wood. Tall windows let in lots of natural light. And large wrought iron and crystal chandeliers hang from the rafters. The result is as the retro chic and first-class – oozing with warmth and charm.
Owner Jacquie Bols wants every meal cooked and prepared to perfection – right on site. The staff of Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering takes care to prepare sustainable and organic foods, some grown in our gardens, and all prepared in our state-of-the-art kitchen on premises.
Just outside the Finley Creek Barn are hand-hewn cedar and pine porch tables for casual dining outside. A little farther away is a much-used fire pit, plus pergola and patio surrounded by flowers, perfect for weddings.
And yes, as our name suggests, there is a working vineyard in progress. We planted last past year and hope to harvest our first grapes in a few more seasons. Stay tuned!
Outside or inside – or both –Finley Creek Vineyards is a stunning place for your next event. It’s not too soon to book fall and holiday events!
