Come out and taste some of the best wine in the state of Kentucky!

The First Vineyard’s history:

On land that was first surveyed by Daniel Boone, John James Dufour, funding from the Kentucky Vineyard Society, started the first Commercial Winery in America.

You can have your event in our pavilion! Designed to accommodate weddings, parties, reunions and other social or business events – year round. Our pavilion can comfortably seat over 175 guests – all at a reasonable price!!

Sugar Creek Resort Bed and Breakfast. Come stay with us on the banks of the Kentucky River and possibly catch a glimpse of the deer wild turkeys that frequent our vineyard during early morning.

OUR NEW HOURS FOR NOVEMBER & DECEMBER: Our Tasting room will be open Friday-Saturday 1pm-7pm & Sunday 1-5pm. We’ll continue to be open for anyone wanting to pick up & carry out wine throughout the year (though we'll be closed Dec. 25-28 for Christmas). We’ll re-open our tasting room March 26, 2021. We hope to see you then!
