Beautiful scenery. Inside was also a nice venue but wedding ceremony had initial view of outdoors but once it turned dark all I saw was the dirty windows of the doors. Maybe add some sort of sheer curtain that could be pulled across? Or be more diligent about keeping impeccably clean? Wedding was in December and it was freezing! Guests... More

Stopped at tasting room today. Guy behind bar asked if he could help me. Told him I just wanted to taste the new red wine they released. He told me it was a 25 minute wait because there were other people tasting. I did not want a full tasting with the big spiel about wine wine. I just got back... More

We went on a Sunday for a little side trip after visiting the UK campus. Tastings cannot start until noon on Sundays, so since we were a little early we simply walked around the vineyard. My wife got some wonderful pictures. Talon is a small, welcoming vineyard in Kentucky farm country. Don't expect the California type vineyard. The staff was... More

The winery is located in beautiful farm country and it has a very welcoming feel. We went on a Sunday and there was live jazz and a picnic atmosphere. Everybody inside was quite nice and helpful and the wine was quite good. The wine tasting only cost 5 dollars and you got to sample 6 wines with generous servings. I... More

We visited Talon Winery and Vineyards. There were swarms of bees all around which made me a bit leery to go in for this visit, however we had driven a long while. We decided to take a chance and go in. We made it past the bees. Once inside we were greeted and directed to the tasting room. Unfortunately the... More

We went to an event in the "barn" at Talon. The wine was - well - Kentucky wine. Nice atmosphere and about what I expected. Service was nice and friendly.

Tastings here are in the smaller house like structure towards the back of the property. You'll drive and think you're going nowhere, but just keep driving and following the signs (the property is well marked) Tastings ran $5 for 6 (except for the Cab Sav. Reserve which counted as 2 of your tastings) or $1 per tasting. The couple next... More

This is a nice winery outside of Lexington. There is a bit of a drive off of the road. Go past the big barn which is used for events. You can taste 6 wines for $5. That should be plenty if you only taste dry or sweet. They have a nice selection (the Cab Reserve counts two by the way)... More
