Kentucky Wine

Towards the latter half of the 19th century, Kentucky was one of the largest grape and wine producing states in the nation. Since the mid-late 1990?s the Commonwealth's grape and wine industry has seen rapid growth and expansion. Kentucky has over 113 grape producers growing around 550 acres of grapes. There are three categories of grapes grown in Kentucky: European (vinifera), French-American hybrids, and American/Native. Currently, there are over 60 small farm wineries in the commonwealth.
