Though the Bourbon industry certainly dominates the minds of many in Bardstown, Kentucky has long been an essential part of the wine industry. In the rolling hills of Bluegrass Country, you’ll find plenty of beautiful Kentucky wineries and vineyards tucked away. In fact, Kentucky was home to the first US commercial vineyard and winery; at one point, it produced over half of the nation’s grapes. Wineries in Kentucky are a wonderful mix of history, heritage, and modern industry. A visit to Kentucky wineries is a romantic experience perfect for the avid wine enthusiast, featuring wine tastings, festivals and events, and tours.

The Bluegrass State has more than 60 wineries, and the majority focus on growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Chardonnay. Our state is also the largest wine producer in the American South. While checking out the distilleries in Bardstown is a must, taking a break to savor the gentle notes of a great glass of vino is such a lovely addition to any romantic getaway, couple’s trip, or friend’s vacation. Thankfully, a handful of the best Kentucky wineries are near our Bardstown B&B.

Our historic Bardstown Bed and Breakfast is in the heart of our charming small town, nestled between old-growth trees and rolling green lawns. Inside the manor and the adjacent guest cottage, you’ll find beautifully designed shared spaces to relax and ten spirit-themed guest suites for your getaway. We’re all about Southern hospitality and making each getaway the most enjoyable it can be. That starts each morning with a homemade breakfast served in our dining room and often wraps up over a bourbon cocktail in the evenings. We can’t wait to host you; book your room today!
