Owners Neil and Rachel bought a beautiful 30 acre farm near Versailles, Kentucky in Woodford County in 1997 and began planting grapes, berries, apples, and peaches in 1998. They named the farm Wildside Farm because of the wild sunflowers and coneflowers that grew in abundance. In addition, the name fit because the farm was initially certified organic until they learned that a minimum of amount of pesticides was needed to keep the fruits healthy. They still use minimal pesticides. Each year they planted more grapes until today they have 5 acres of grapes, two acres of fruit trees and 1.5 acres of berries.Welcome to Wildside Winery your winery near Lexington Kentucky, the airport, and Keeneland racetrack!

We also have a semi-sweet wine called "Sonata". It is our Riesling style wine - very fruity, smooth and a little sweet.

Neil is the wine maker at Wildside Winery and he loves making new and interesting kinds of wine. These unusual wines are often tricky to make and time consuming. They are often made in small quantities and are usually from fresh local fruit. A short list of the interesting wines are our new Bourbon barrel red wine made with Cabernet, peach mead, fresh strawberry, hard cider, and many other delicious wines. Another special wine is our Port wine. It's aged in Woodford Reserve Bourbon barrels.

On a lark we found this winery. I have to say the people that say (Amanda and Brenda were super cool and very helpful as we selected our wines. I personally recommend the Chardonnay, the Rose and the Red Zin.

We were spending the day touring distilleries. We missed the last tour for Four Roses, but were not quite ready to head home. Found this great little winery. Very friendly and the wines were great. A very inexpensive tasting.
