2020 has not been a good year for visiting wineries. As a Kentucky wine lover who loves to visit wineries, yesterday was a momentous day. We visited our second winery of the year. While running an errand in Henry County, we visited Smith-Berry Vineyards and Winery. We enjoyed a couple of hours sitting outdoors, tasting a flight of wines, and talking to owner and winemaker, Chuck Smith.
Smith-Berry has been one of our favorite wineries for many years. Chuck makes good wine and has a variety of wines available for all wine lovers. From a crisp Pinot Grigio to a dark purple Petite Sirah, his wines will appeal to someone looking for a good dry wine. A lover of sweeter wines will enjoy a Moscato or Chambourcin. The winery also offers some sweet fruit wines like Strawberry, Blueberry, and Blackberry that offer the sensation of enjoying the fresh fruits.
Being back at a winery, enjoying the views, the wine, and the ambiance was a great way to spend a couple of hours. It’s been too long and we look forward to visiting other Kentucky wineries soon.
