Come by the vineyard for a free wine sampling and to learn about our September Harvest Days!
We have a variety of different wines produced mostly from our own Kentucky grapes. The vines we grow range from vinifera vines - originally from Germany and France - to French-American hybrid vines. We specifically chose grape varieties and rootstocks that provide quality over quantity... we don't mind making less wine, but we expect top quality. The varieties we grow may be challenging, but the fruit of the labor is well worth it!
White Wines, listed from sweet to dry:
Loui – $9
Formerly known as Goldenrod, our Loui wine is the sweetest white wine we make and is made from Riesling icewine kits from California. This wine is very aromatic with hints of lychee and high in natural sugars. We serve it cold, which makes it very enjoyable during the warm summer months. Loui is named in honor of the city of Louisville.
Lexi – $10 (Sold Out until March 2018)
Formerly known as Viceroy, our Lexi wine is made using Vidal Blanc grapes grown here in Kentucky. It is semi-sweet with hints of honeycrisp apple and apricot. We recommend serving slightly chilled. Lexi is named in honor of the city of Lexington.
Rhubarb – $12 (Sold Out until March 2018)
This is our most popular wine and is made from our own Crimson Red rhubarb stalks. The wine has a beautiful pink color and has hints of strawberry (although it is made entirely from rhubarb).
Bluegrass White – $10
This is a blend of white grapes we produce from our vineyard, which includes Traminette and Vignoles. This is crisp and tart, and tastes similar to honeycrisp apple.
Shelby – $12
Formerly known as Central Star, our Shelby wine is made from Chardonnay and Chardonnel grapes. Both grapes have a similar flavor but the Chardonnel vines can withstand the cold winters we get in this part of the country. We ferment our Shelby wine in generous amounts of French oak, providing a hint of vanilla. This is the only dry white wine we produce and can be served either chilled or at room temperature, but we prefer room temperature. Shelby is named in honor of the city of Shelbyville.
Red Wines, listed from sweet to dry:
The Duke – $9
Formerly known as Dixie Sugar, The Duke wine is our second most popular wine and has hints of chocolate and black raspberry. This is an excellent wine when served at room temperature on a cold day (a perfect Christmas gift)! This is our sweetest red wine, but it is also slightly higher in alcohol content. We recommend this as a dessert beverage, but you may also try this with your favorite chocolate candy. The Duke is named in honor of the city of Paducah.
Blackberry – $11
Blackberries tend to make excellent wines, especially when using locally grown fruit. We produce a light-bodied blackberry wine that is fermented to dryness, but lightly sweetened prior to bottling. This is a great fruit wine and is best served slightly chilled.
Blueberry - $11 (Sold Out until March 2018)
We made a small batch of Blueberry wine this year to see how it turned out... and it turned out AMAZING! It is our 2nd most popular wine behind our Rhubarb. We have nearly sold out of Blueberry for this year, but we plan to make more next year.
Bluegrass Red – $10
This is a blend of red wines we produce from our vineyard, including Chambourcin, Villard Noir, and Noiret. This wine varies from year to year depending on our growing season, but it ranges from semi-sweet to off-dry. We fermented and aged this wine in small amounts of French and American oak, which gave it a subtle earthy flavor.
Blue Line – $8
Bluegrass Vineyard supports our men and women in blue, and a portion of each bottle sold will be donated to Smiths Grove and Warren County first responders, as well as the Kentucky Fallen Officer Trust. If you would like to learn more about donating to our first responders, please email us and we will put you in touch with some great local organizations. This is an easy-going dry red wine, aged without oak.
Maddie – $11 (Sold Out until March 2018)
Formerly known as Mammoth Red, our Maddie wine is made primarily from Merlot grapes and has soft tannins and a smooth finish. This is fermented and aged in French oak, imparting only subtle flavors from the wood. This is an excellent wine for pairing with foods, or for sipping at the end of the evening. Maddie is named in honor of the city of Madisonville.
Commonwealth Red – $12
Our Commonwealth Red is a blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cabernet Franc grapes are grown in Kentucky, while the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes originate from California. This is a big bold red wine that we ferment in French oak and age in generous amounts of medium- and heavy-toasted American oak. The mixture of different oaks adds to the complexity of the flavor. Commonwealth Red is another wine with excellent aging potential!
