Vineyard Tours Information

 

Everyone knows that Kentucky’s name is synonymous with bourbon and horses.

However, Kentucky has a long history with the wine industry. The first commercial vineyard in the United States is located in Kentucky. By the late 1800s, Kentucky was the third largest wine producing state in the nation. All of that ended with the introduction of Prohibition. Kentucky’s farmers then turned to tobacco production which remained the dominant industry throughout the twentieth century. Now with the downturn of the tobacco industry, farmers are turning back to the production of wine. Currently, Kentucky has seventy+ commercial vineyards and the industry is still growing. 

 So we invite you to come along and see what Kentucky's vineyards are all about.  You can check out what we have in store by clicking on our Calendar of Events or by visiting the tours menu above.
