As a Kentucky wine lover, my resolution is simple this year — visit more Kentucky wineries. Since interviewing all the owners and wine makers for my book A Wine Lover’s Odyssey Across Kentucky, the state has had a winery boom. The book featured the 32 wineries in the state in 2011 that had tasting rooms and regular hours for visitors. My premise was that most people would be more likely to visit those wineries rather than plan and call ahead. Boy, has that number changed!
Looking at the most recent Kentucky winery guide which we picked up at the end of 2018, there are around 70 wineries in the state now. Most of them have tasting rooms. So my resolution will be challenging. I will let you know how we are doing!by admin
