In 1990, Kentucky had no commercial wineries. Wine lovers looked to wines from Europe or California when searching for the perfect bottle. Today, there are around sixty wineries in the state with more on the horizon. Now wine lovers can choose from a variety of wines made from grapes grown in one of the many Kentucky vineyards and made in one of Kentucky's wineries. They can also visit those wineries and taste the wines before buying them.
A Wine Lover's Odyssey Across Kentucky takes readers on a tour of Kentucky to visit thirty-four of the state's wineries, to explore the history of wine in Kentucky, and to discover the grape varieties that make their favorite wines so enjoyable.
Many people interested in wine still don't know much about the wine industry in Kentucky. This is the first book devoted to Kentucky wine and its wineries. The time has come for Kentucky to create a wine culture that will draw wine-loving visitors to the Bluegrass State. Author: P. Faye Collins. Paperback, 192 pages.
