Favorite Wine: Chambourcin, Moscato
We saw the sign while traveling on Interstate 71 and decided to stop. The winery was about 8 miles from the interstate but well worth the trip. The winery grounds are gorgeous and the barn and wine tasting room rival any that we have been to. They have a very nice outside area with tables and chairs so you can sit out and enjoy your wine. The young lady that helped us seemed knowledgeable of the wine. We tasted several wines before selecting the Chambourcin and Moscato as our favorites and bought a bottle of each. We frequent that stretch of highway a couple times a year and will stop again. If you are between Louisville and Cincinnati stop in and visit this winery.

Favorite Wine: Cheviot
Tried Smith today at a wine festival in NKY - they did not have all of their wines, but what they did have were excellent. 2 young girls were manning the counter, one in training (but seemed eager to learn) - so not a lot of wine experience but knew their product. best taste today was the Cheviot (dry white blend) followed by the Vidal (semi dry, perfect floral nose and citrus finish). Overall very positive experience. Will have to visit the winery soon!

Favorite Wine: Smith-Berry Bluegrass Blush and Drennon Creek
Had heard good things about Smith-Berry Winery and looked forward to tasting their wine, but I was disappointed with the taste of most of their wines. I liked and enjoyed Smith-Berry Bluegrass Blush and Drennon Creek, and I would buy them again. Would not recommand any of the OAK wines, unless you really like the taste of oak. Smith-Berry SBS American Oak Chardonel was not good taste to me. The two wines I liked would be the reason to bring me back to this winery.

Norton Wine Review: Visited Smith-Berry Winery where the Norton wine is made, but the grapes come from Arkansas. Here we found a slightly lighter ruby colored Norton and a tasting rejection from my wife and a curiosity tasting note from me. To me, this was light on the nose and harnessed to a subtle tartness. On most tasting occasions my wife and I agree on wine tastes, but on this one you will have to tell us who is “right”. Our host did mention that there actually were two more Nortons, but were not available for tasting (????). So the trick here was that you had to buy their other [2003?] Norton or a 30 month oaked Norton on a blind purchase. On the recommendations of our host, we opted for the extended oaked aged selection. Oh, we will let you know about the results of this when we get home . . . . . . . . . . . . [We are home now and the wines have rested in a cool dark place for three weeks from its travels. A day has been set aside to taste this 2005 30 month oak aged S-BW Vintner’s Reserve Norton on our son’s 30th birthday. Bottle decanted in a large broad based vessel, resting for 40 minutes, and served at slightly less than room temperature. With eyes all looking anxiously, ears listening to the pour, noses putting to the test of bouquet promised, and my son’s voice exclaiming upon tasting – “vinegar”. Four people quickly agreed to the term of “cottony mouth” as palates endured the effects of green persimmons. Will there be future blind winery purchases for us? Lesson learned.]

Quaint place, very nice setting and good wine selection. The owner's daughter was very friendly and gave us a tour. It was well worth the drive.
