Our History and the Grounds

Verona Vineyards in Verona, Kentucky, is located on a beautiful, historic, working horse farm nestled in the rolling hills and is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life.  Whether you enjoy our wine in the cozy barn turned tasting room or on the patio watching the sun set over the vines, we know you will be able to relax, unwind, and forget the stresses of the day. The peaceful backdrop of the vineyard also makes a great location for special events such as corporate retreats, birthday celebrations and anniversary parties. We also host live music in our tasting room. In addition to the winery the farm is home to the George-Vest house which was built in 1842 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

Our Locations

Verona Vineyards

Our vineyard was laid out in the fall of 2004 with the first vines being planted in the spring of 2005. Family and friends came out and helped plant over 2,000 Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc grape vines with the intial plan to grow and sell the grapes.  In the fall of 2008, prior to the first harvest, the contract to sell the grapes fell through.  So what do you do with two thousand pounds of grapes.....figure out how to make great wine!  We enjoyed it so much we added Dornfelder vines in 2010 and in 2015 we added Petit Verdot to the vineyard with plans to continue to blend our award winning red wines each year.

Tasting Room

We proudly serve some of our estate wines from our recent harvests. In addition to our award winning estate wines, we also offer wines made from grapes grown by Verona Landing Vineyard.  We are proud to also offer a wide variet of Cellar Wines from around the world, fine Kentucky Bourbons, and a great selection of regional and local craft beers.

George-Vest House

The main house on the property was built in 1842 by George Vest and we spent the last fifteen years completely restoring the house, with all of the original woodwork remaining intact. The house, along with the dairy barn and silos are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

We celebrated the 175 year anniversary of this beautiful house in the fall of 2017.
