Enjoyed the cute winery, tasted six wines and ordered a few bottles of chardonnay. Nice staff. I would return to have a picnic on the grounds.

A lovely family winery to visit and excellent wines to taste. They have a good array of wines to taste, so those who like their wines sweet have a selection and those who like their wines dry have an especially wonderful selection. The nice young lady conducting our tasting was knowledgable, polite, professional and engaging. We liked their dry wines... More

The winery is decorated wonderfully. Very clean and fun place to be. The service was friendly and the back deck/patio area view is relaxing with a view of a lake. They also have music so if you like live music, check their schedule and plan your visit. Oh, and make sure you try out the hand scrub in the bathroom.... More

Talon is our favorite winery in the area, mainly because of the high quality and variety of wines they produce. The grounds are beautiful as well, and they now have live music on weekend evenings when the weather is nice. Make sure to head down Tates Creek road to Talon and have a great afternoon.

We stopped here on a whim because we needed a break from a lengthy roadtrip. Getting back to the winery was a little ways off the highway, but the scenery and land surrounding was beautiful. The winery grounds themselves were beautiful as was the tasting room in the former farmhouse. The gift shop inside the house was well stocked with... More

This is an extension of Lexington's Talon Winery. There's no wine making here, but the surrounding farmland looks like it could become a vineyard. The gift shop here was well stocked. And the wine was pretty good as well. Only $1 each to sample.

The grounds were beautiful as well as the tasting facilities, although was not impressed with the complete tasting experience. The two employees working were too worried about the two other large groups to give the two of us any attention. There were no suggestions or descriptions when asking about which wines to try. We got a brief description of the... More

Talon is set on acres of beautiful Kentucky farmland and the sense of quiet and peace is very relaxing. It is about 25 minutes outside of Lexington but well worth the drive. We did a wine tasting with a young gentleman named Sean who was entertaining as well as informative. They had a great deal on wine tasting, try 6... More
