Mt. Washington, in Bullitt County, is the location of a winery owned by John and Donna Miller. Visitors can taste their wines and savor a appetizer tray. Local residents have made use of the lovely facilities for weddings, parties, and other events. They are open to the public seven days a week, and open until 8 PM on Fridays and Saturdays.
The wines at MillaNova have won awards at the Indy International and the Kentucky State Fair competitions this year. Cabernet Sauvignon and Mafia Merlot received double gold medals and their Petite Sirah Royale was awarded a silver medal at Indianapolis, while Mint Julia, a special blend, won Gold at the Kentucky State Fair. At a recent visit, I was especially impressed with the Petite Sirah and the Pitite Sirah Royale. The difference in the two is in the aging and selection of grapes. Their Walnut Ridge dessert wine, one of Kentucky’s most unique wines, is excellent for sipping or for cooking. I love using it in my Kentucky Memories Cake.
