While driving to Nashville last weekend, we decided to stop at one of Kentucky’s newer wineries. Forest Edge Winery is quite impressive. Visitors will find the building and the décor to be especially attractive. But what is really impressive, for a winery only two years old, is the wine. The quality of the wine is easily understood when you find out that the winemaker is Butch Meyer. Meyer has been making wine for quite some time and either makes the wine or consults with several other Kentucky wineries.
The winery is owned by Brance and Tracy Gould (Tracy is Butch Meyer’s daughter). They have a winery that will become a popular destination with wine lovers. Not only are the facilities inviting, those working there are friendly and helpful. The winery is located in Bullitt County, on the edge of the Bernheim Forest, near the start of one of Kentucky’s Bourbon Trails. Of course, wine lovers are most interested in the wine and they will not be disappointed.
Their best seller is Black Cherry Pomegranate, one of their sweet, fruity wines. The winery also offers a wide variety of dry wines, such as, Cabernet Sauvignon, Old Vine Zinfandel, and a Dry Chardonnay (with no oak). My favorite was a Dry Riesling which is an unusual find.
I strongly recommend a visit. You won’t regret it.
