Stream Cliff Farm Winery News
The Winery is preparing for another great year. We have a new release of Kentucky Stud, a black currant wine. We feel this is the best release we have created and look forward to having you give it a try. Our heartfelt desire is that every time a visitor comes to our farm they have a delightful experience.
Many people enjoy our handcrafted wines. The selection is broad, from the dry reds such as Iron Hand (Cabernet Sauvignon), Rawhide (Pinot Noir), Old Bo (Chambourcin style) and Running Horse Red (Merlot). Dry white wines are My Dolly (Chardonnay), Spotted Horse (Riesling) and Horsefeathers (Seyval Blanc style) For our friends with a sweeter palate there are many fruit wines from which to select. Some of these include our wines made using blackberry (people often tell us it is the best blackberry wine they have tasted), apple, peach, cranberry, black currant, and raspberry. Our Christmas wine (available Oct-Dec) has an amusing label and makes a perfect gift. Most of the time, we have 18-20 different wines from which to choose.
The Winery dining room has been enjoyed during our autumn and holiday lunches and Candlelight Dinners, as well as throughout the year for groups such as bus tours, clubs, baby/bridal showers and business meetings. The room has a barrel ceiling and the floor has the look of old brick. This charming room will seat about forty people and has such a warm and welcoming atmosphere, just right for an old building that was once a blacksmith shop.
Again this year live music will be presented in the Winery's beautiful Pavilion -- see the "Summer Music Series". We will be having free live music each Sunday afternoon 1:00-4:00 between June 25 and September 24. Lunch will be served in the Pavilion area during the live music. Be sure to "Like" us on Facebook to see up to date information on our Summer Music Series.
One of the highlights of visiting the Winery in the fall is going on a hayride to our private creek. Greg, our son, organizes these hayrides to a beautiful, secluded part of the Farm visitors do not regularly see. The hayrides have been a huge hit! We will be serving cheeses, fruit, salami, olives and herbal bread. Guests will enjoy 2 glasses of wine per individual or one bottle of wine per couple. Each guest will leave with a Stream Cliff Winery glass to commemorate their visit. Fee is $55 per couple or $27.50 per individual. See Hayrides to the Creek for details.
Our Winery is unique because we do a lot of pairing with wine and herbs in food for exceptional flavor. Our farm offers cooking classes emphasizing how to use both wines and herbs in food preparation. Please refer to the cooking class section for more information. The Winery offers special events for groups of fifteen or more, such as holiday dinners.
