Tasting location has outdoor patio, though this is a bit small - so ideal to expand this space and allow for comfortable seating and catering. Winemaker is outstanding as varietals rival Napa.

I was skeptical about going to a winery in Kentucky but was pleasantly surprised at how good their dry wines were. The house you taste in was wonderful and it is a beautiful setting

We did not expect a great deal from a winery in Kentucky, but were very pleasantly surprised by the beautiful property, above average wines grown in that climate. The tasting room was very well done with excellent service and fair prices.
