Wine lovers in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati will want to mark their calendars. The 7th annual Northern Kentucky Wine Festival will be October 20th at the Sixth Street Promenade at MainStrasse, in Covington.
With recent additions, there are 19 wineries attending. My wine book divides the state into five regions and each of those regions will be represented. From the Northern Kentucky Region: Elk Creek Vineyards, Stonebrook Winery, Atwood Hill Winery, Generation Hill Winery, Baker-Bird Winery, Seven Wells Vineyard & Winery, Redman’s Farm Winery, Rose Hill Farm Winery, Serendipity Winery, and Verona Vineyards will be there. Chrisman Mill Vineyards and Winery, Lovers Leap Vineyards and Winery, Black Barn Winery, and Equus Run Winery from the Bluegrass Region; Horseshoe Bend Vineyards, WhiteMoon Winery, and Old 502 Winery from the Derby Region; Purple Toad Winery from the Western Region; and Cedar Creek Vineyards from the Southeastern Region of the state will also offer wines for tasting and buying.
This has become one of Kentucky’s most popular wine festivals, with 3,000 in attendance last year. Hours for the festival are 3 PM to 10 PM.
I’ve attended the festival for years and recommend it as an enjoyable way to spend an October day. This year I’ll be signing books as well as tasting some of my favorite wines. Hope to see you there.
