Today is Friday, warm and sunny, the start of a holiday weekend, and National Wine Day – what a combination! There are many ways to celebrate such a day.
Visit one of the many wineries that Kentucky has to offer. Vineyards are welcoming the warm weather and the wines are calling your name. If your day is too busy to visit a winery, pick up a bottle of wine at your preferred wine shop. Many stores are offering wine sales to commemorate the day.
Find your favorite place and that special someone, raise a glass to toast National Wine Day, and enjoy yourself!
Everyone wants to ask the same question – Mint Julep or Margarita? The Kentucky Derby is being run on Cinco de Mayo, after all. My answer and my choice for the Derby are the same – Vino Rosso.

Who says running errands or shopping can’t be fun; not anyone who has ever combined the trip with a stop at a nearby winery. Many of Kentucky’s winery’s are conveniently located and make a spur of the moment stop a way to brighten any day. April was one of those months when we had a lot of things to do.
The Whole Foods store in Lexington has become one of our regular shopping spots. The store offers a wide line of many healthy choices and many hard to find varieties. As a plus, just minutes away is The Winery at Fayette Mall. Chrisman Mill Vineyards has a tasting room in the front of the Mall near the southern end. A glass of wine (or two) is a perfect way to follow-up shopping for healthy foods, after all wine can be healthy too.
Beef cattle farmers are familiar with a trip to a butcher shop. With one located near New Castle, our visit there was a perfect time to fit in a stop at Smith-Berry Vineyards and Winery. A glass of red wine pairs as well with a trip to pick up some beef as it does with that steak dinner.
Living in Northern Kentucky, any trip can easily include a trip to one of our favorite wineries; Brianza Gardens and Winery is so close to home that a visit to our local Kroger, our family doctor, or even our grandson’s basketball games can be followed by a relaxing glass of wine.
Being an efficient and inventive person, I’m always looking for a way to make life more enjoyable. All wine lovers should look for a way to visit a winery to brighten up their day.
