Last weekend, we had a delightful visit with Jim and Sandy Wight, at the Wight-Meyer Vineyard and Winery, in Shepherdsville. As always, we were able to taste one of Kentucky’s best Nortons and one of our favorites.
During the visit, we were also offered a taste of one of this winery’s future releases. Jim has created a Meritage blend of 50% Petit Syrah, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, to be released in 2014. The wine already demonstrates superior taste, color, and aromas. With two years aging, this could easily be one of Kentucky’s finest wines ever produced. The only downside of this wine is that there are only two barrels, one is already sold and the other is reserved for wine club members. Interested wine lovers should consider becoming wine club members.
The vineyard is showing the welcoming signs of spring. The winery is open seven days a week and is located just over five miles from I-65. Their award-winning wines are also available at shop.wightmeyervineyards.com. Visitors love their wines, including sweeter selections, such as Amy’s Apple Pie and Barrel Age Blackberry. I recommend a visit to the winery or to their website.
