Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region is home to some excellent wineries. Over Memorial Day, we were able to visit our three favorites, Prodigy Vineyards and Winery, Lovers Leap Vineyards and Winery, and the Chrisman Mill Winery at Fayette Mall.
Prodigy Vineyards and Winery is just off I-64, between Frankfort and Versailles, in one of Kentucky’s loveliest regions. Beautiful farms dot the countryside. Prodigy is one of those wineries with wines for every taste bud and they are all very well made. Our favorite is Lemberger, a dry red with spicy undertones. This wine is of German origin and is sometimes called Blaufrankisch.
Lovers Leap Vineyards and Winery is off the beaten path outside of Lawrenceburg. The winery is one of Kentucky’s oldest but has undergone changes in ownership. Today the winery has set a standard for its fine wines. Cabernet Franc Reserve and Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve are our definite favorites here.
The Winery at Fayette Mall has closed and Chrisman Mill Vineyards and Winery will be open weekends at the vineyard. This has long been one of our favorites wineries in the state and we will be looking forward to visiting the vineyard soon. They make an excellent Norton Reserve.
All in all, for a wine lover it was an enjoyable weekend!This entry was posted in Kentucky Wineries by admin
