Property at a Glance: Elk Creek Vineyards It may come as a surprise, but the first commercial winery in the United States wasn’t in California—it was in Kentucky. Marquis de Lafayette first planted vines here in 1798. Though Prohibition effectively ended Kentucky’s run as a major vintner, Elk Creek Vineyards carries on the tradition. Set amid rolling hills, it’s one of Kentucky’s largest wineries, boasting its own café, tasting room, outdoor amphitheater, and bed and breakfast. Where you’ll stay: Accommodations are spread among three buildings: The Inn, The Estates, and The Lodge, which features private decks overlooking 30 acres of vineyards. Breakfast is included wherever you stay. Learn about wine during an Elk Creek Vineyards winery tour (included in select options), which also comes with a cheese-and-cracker plate (included in all options). Girls night out: One option lets you and up to five girlfriends stay at the inn and includes a wine tasting and 30-minute massages for all. Catch a show: There’s live entertainment on Fridays and Saturdays. Wines produced here include Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, and more Owenton, Kentucky: Rolling Hills near Horse Farms, Hunting, and Fishing If you were to draw a triangle between Lexington, Louisville, and Cincinnati, Owenton would lie directly in the middle of it. Though it’s within an 80-minute drive of each of these towns, Owenton remains charmingly rural. Elk Creek Vineyards might be the area’s biggest draw, but there are also opportunities for fishing and hunting nearby. About 50 miles southeast of Owenton lies Lexington, which has the spirit of a university town intertwined with a pedigreed thoroughbred-horse culture. The small city is fringed with horse farms, many of which have yielded Kentucky Derby winners. It’s possible to take a guided tour of many of these facilities—a great chance to see the next Triple Crown contender before it becomes famous. At Kentucky Horse Park, you can see the gravesite statue of the legendary stallion Man o’ War and visit living race winners in the Hall of Champions.View Company website
