Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 5 starsSep 24, 2016

Here are the facts: 1) out in the middle of nowhere Kentucky 2) a tiny country farm tasting setting filled with grape & fruit wines which all have tales behind each label 3) two of the nicest people you are going to meet anywhere west of the Atlantic. Ambiense?, I already told you, ~ it's a farm complete with stables which contributes to the great setting! Rex is the vintner who uses not only local grapes, but will use 'juice' from Ohio or New York if he has an idea. Diane works horses, but will give you her time behind the bar. Every bottle is a unique surprise; as, their 2013 Berea Rose (Cab Frank) which has a delightful 'bitterness' on the tongue caused by using Heaven Hill Distillery's once used bourbon barrels in wine processing. Reid's 2013 Norton (sold out) was an Indy International Double Gold winner. With changes in weather, the 2014 example could only be described as a drink now Norton ($20). Diane's description of their 'Harvest Blend' (75% Norton, 25% Ohio Petit Syrah) was a pleasant 'Busy' (which I conjured up as 'complex'). A lightly French oaked $16 2012 Hilltop Vineyard Blend (50% Cab Franc, 50% De Chaunac) just adds to the available variations. Reid's Livery surprise dry white New York state Moore's Diamond grape 2013 'Silver Streak' ($20) continued the unique tastes. Let's me end with mentioning their 2012 'Healthy Harvest Blend' ($20, 20% 2011 Cab Franc), the driest, no sugar added, Elderberry wine you will ever encounter. This is a Shut-the-Front-Door wine which will enthrall you glass after glass (and known to have medicinal qualities). If you are a Harvest Host member, the Reids will make this a never to forget stop.

This winery is a little out of the way, but definately worth the trip. The wines are done differently than most, almost all on the dry side. Even the fruit wines are dry, with the exception of the peach - and the sweet wine drinkers will love it! The tasting room is in an old 4 room farm house, and the grounds are very well maintained. The staff (Rex and Dianne) were very friendly and welcoming, and let us take our time photographing the flowers and horses and playing with their kitten. Wonderful visit!
