If you are visiting the sites in Ripley, it is just a short jaunt up Route 68 to Laycock Road and the pretty Meranda-Nixon Winery. We were there on a Saturday afternoon interested in doing a tasting and purchase a bottle or two of something we liked. The building is lovely with a porch on the front, and inside, tables and a tasting bar. The proprietors were friendly and we enjoyed many of their wines. Tastes are listed as $1 each on the tasting menu and there was cheese and crackers. A nice experience and a good end to a day in Ripley.
