Wine lovers will want to make time, on October 19, to attend the Northern Kentucky Wine Festival at MainStrasse Village. From 3 pm to 10 pm, wineries from around the state will be pouring tastes of their wines for visitors. The $10 admission includes a souvenir wine glass and 4 sample tickets, additional tickets may be purchased. (You must be 21 to attend.) Wines may be purchased by the bottle or the case from the wineries.
Participating wineries this year are from many of the state’s regions. From Northern Kentucky Atwood Hill Winery, Elk Creek Vineyards, Generation Hill Winery, Redman’s Farm Winery, Rose Hill Farm Winery, Serendipity Winery, Seven Wells Vineyard & Winery, StoneBrook Winery and Verona Vineyards will be there. From just outside of the Northern Kentucky region near Augusta, Baker-Bird Winery will be offering their wines at the festival. Bluegrass wineries will be represented by Black Barn Winery, First Vineyard Winery, and Lovers Leap Vineyards & Winery. From the Louisville region, Smith-Berry Vineyard & Winery, Old 502 Winery, The Little Kentucky River Winery, and Horseshoe Bend Vineyards will be pouring tastes. Wine lovers will also get a chance to taste the wines of a Western Kentucky winery because Purple Toad Winery will be traveling from Paducah to the festival once again.
Visitors to the festival on the Sixth Street Promenade at the Goose Girl Fountain will also enjoy live entertainment throughout the hours of the festival and be able to purchase local foods. Along with the wineries, local artisans will have booths with items available for sale.
Once again, I’ll be there with my book. Anyone purchasing a book will receive a wine lover’s original recipe card. I’d love to see you there.
Having attended this festival for many years, I have to say it’s one of the best in the state. Not only does the MainStrasse Association do an excellent job with the festival; the Sixth Street Promenade is a really nice setting for relaxing and enjoying an autumn evening also. Wine lovers will have a great time.
