Hello, my name is Faye. Welcome to The Kentucky Wine Lover Blog!
Kentucky’s number of wineries is growing. For someone who loves wine and loves her state, this is good news. The Kentucky Wine Lover is dedicated to the discussion of the wineries, wines, and wine news in Kentucky.
For many years, I’ve enjoyed wines and wineries. When Kentucky’s industry began growing, I was hooked. Last year, my enjoyment turned to research when I decided to write a book about the wineries in the state. Research has taken my husband and I across the state. After months of research and writing, the book is with the publisher and should be released later this year. I will post the details when they’re available.
This blog grew from my interest and research. For years, friends have asked my advice about wine — what I’d recommend and why. “I’m not a wine professional, but I play one on the internet.” Well, I’m not a trained wine professional, but am a very dedicated amateur. I hope you will enjoy the fruits of my labours as much as I have.
Like many wine drinkers, my tastes have changed over the years. From starting out drinking Boone’s Farm, moving to the German Liebfraumilch, today my favorites are drys. My favorite wines are the big, full-bodied reds; such as, Chrisman Mill’s Norton Reserve, Prodigy’s Lemberger, Purple Toad’s Cabernet Franc, Smith-Berry’s Norton, Millanova’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Lovers Leap’s Cynthiana, and Wight-Meyer’s Norton. As you can tell, Nortons are my first choice. Elk Creek’s Gewurztraminer and Pinot Grigio are the most appealing when I’m in the mood for a white wine.by admin
