Kenton County Cooperative Extension Services sponsored its first farm tour on September 17, 2011. Hundreds of visitors were welcomed at the farms and invited to look around and enjoy learning about the farm products, from pumpkins to shrimp to Angus and Simmental cattle. Two of the fourteen farms visited were wineries. Kenton County’s two wineries are Atwood Hill Winery and Redman’s Farm and Winery.
Atwood Hill Winery has been around for several years and is well-known to the community. The wines are good; the tasting room and grounds are lovely and provide visitors with a relaxing experience. During the tour, there were antique tractors, special foods, craft booths, and, of course, wine. Though the grapevines were covered to protect the harvest, no one seemed to mind. While we were there, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and partaking of all of the offerings.
Redman’s Farm and Winery is relatively new as a winery, but not as a family farm. The family took visitors on tours through the farm, provided food, and had flowers available for purchasing. Visitors could taste the apple and blackberry wines or purchase produce during their time at the farm.
