Maybe beer isn't exactly your thing, and you'd rather sip and swirl your way through a hot afternoon? If so, the fertile grounds of Kentucky's Bluegrass region's wine country will be perfect for you. Though wine grapes have been grown in this area since 1798, the wine industry of today is still considered to be a newcomer. Kentucky's wine industry is currently experiencing something of a renaissance
, largely due to the need to replace large and profitable tobacco farms that once filled the region. Today, there are 72 licensed wineries in the region, cultivating a total of 600 acres of wine grapes. Popular wineries
in the area include Black Barn Winery
, Castle Hill Winery
, Chateau di Vieux Corbeau
, Jean Farris Winery & Bistro
, Wildside Winery
, and more.
Though craft beer and wine are great and certainly have a dedicated following, you can't leave Kentucky without sampling some of the world's finest bourbon. The Kentucky Bourbon Trail
is a great place to start your search for your favorite bourbon distilleries. It will guide you through generation after generation of Kentucky's heritage and tradition in regards to this fine spirit. A fun adventure for the bourbon enthusiast is Louisville's Urban Bourban Trail
, which will take you deep into the bourbon-inspired creativity of Louisville’s culinary artists.
