Most wine lovers in Kentucky have heard of Chrisman Mill. Opening in the late 1990s, it is one of the states oldest wineries. Today the vineyards are home to not only the Chrisman Mill Winery, but also the Hummingbird Ridge Distillery and Fuego Grill. Under the ownership of Chris and Denise Nelson, the vineyard is being readied to reopen in early July under all new protective health measures to keep visitors safe and allow them to enjoy all the winery, the distillery, and the grill.
Visitors to Chrisman Mill are familiar with the wine making and distilling skills of Dr. Chris Nelson, a well-known pediatrician in Lexington. But most are probably not aware that he is indeed a man of many talents. This is a work of art created by Chris of a subject near to his heart, a metal sculpture is of an old Zinfandel vine. Chris’s Old Vine Zinfandel wine has become a favorite with visitors, the wine maker, and the Kentucky Wine Lover.
