It was an enjoyable afternoon tour, and had me excited to come back some day when I can do more!
We headed towards Meranda-Nixon winery, just over the Ohio River on US-62. We happened to have timed it right, and they were hosting their annual barrel tasting event. They were hesitant to accept a camper this evening because of the event, but once they understood we were in a 'small' van, they welcomed us to join. The owners and staff were wonderful, the event was a riot, and the wine was great. We did a standard bottle tasting first, and the wine was some of our favorite in Ohio (not too sweet!), then we made our way to the event space where we were permitted to join in the barrel tasting event. The wine samples, pulled out of the barrels surrounding us, were absolutely wonderful!
A great time was had by all!
The trip was nothing crazy, but we checked off a new National Park, a new Ohio Harvest Host, and the 'best hike in Kentucky'. It was a great way to spend a long weekend!
