The 2019 Kentucky Wine & Vine Fest Weekend is a celebration of Kentucky’s thriving wine industry, held in historic Jessamine County, Kentucky, the site of our nation’s first winery founded by John James Dufour in 1799 — just a few minutes south of Lexington. If you can’t find something on the website or have a question, please visit our Contact page.
Join us for the Equine & Wine Tour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday as we experience tastings at 3 wineries, enjoy a gourmet lunch and visit a famous Thoroughbred horse farm. On Friday evening the Kentucky Farm to Table Dinner includes appetizers and wine tastings, a stallion show, and a 4 course meal paired with award-winning Kentucky wines.
We hope you’re staying for the weekend! Holiday Inn Express is our hotel sponsor and is providing special pricing for those attending the festival. If you miss out booking with them, here are some recommended lodgings. On Saturday, browse the booths of Kentucky wineries from across the state to sip, savor as you enjoy the Kentucky Wine & Vine Fest from 1 p.m. until 9 p.m.! Enjoy Kentucky arts & crafts & food vendors, live music, the hot air balloon glow and spectacular fireworks!
