“Kentucky's Napa Valley”

Treat yourself to a Kentucky version of Napa Valley. Relax in the comfort of one of our rooms at the Elk Creek Lodge, Elk Creek Inn, or the Elk Creek Estates. We offer a range of room styles, from a king suite to queen rooms with private and shared baths. The entire, Lodge or Inn may also be reserved for corporate or family gatherings. In 1798, Kentucky was the site of America's first commercial vineyard planted by the winemaker for the Marquis de Lafeyette. By the late 1800's, Kentucky was the third largest grape and wine producer in the United States. Then came Prohibition which hit the Kentucky wine industry hard just like it did in many other states. Many of the vineyards then in Kentucky were either uprooted and converted to cash crops or they were abandoned. Today of course the story is much different. There are many Kentucky wineries where visitors can enjoy wine tours and tastings. And Elk Creek Vineyards is leading the region for Kentucky vineyards and Kentucky wine. We're proud to be the largest winery in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.Elk Creek Vineyards is nestled among the rolling hills of Kentucky in Owenton, KY. We established Elk Creek Vineyards in 2003 believing that the only way to make great wines is to intimately know what grows best on Kentucky soil. Like those who came before us more than 200 years ago, we are making the finest wine Kentucky soil has to offer. Now, you can purchase our Kentucky wine here on our website or by visiting our winery.Elk Creek Vineyards is located just one hour's drive from Lexington KY, Louisville KY or Cincinnati OH. We offer a wide choice of Award winning wines that are produced and bottled on-site. Kentucky wine at its finest. In addition, we offer a deli, art gallery, cooking classes, Bed and Breakfast lodging, live entertainment, a gift shop and outdoor entertainment at our amphitheater during the Spring and Summer months. Our winery is a spectacular place for tastings, tours and special events.

Beautiful winery. This place is a great day trip getaway from Cincinnati (about 1 hr drive). We stopped and had lunch there, the deli in the winery has great sandwiches and salads. After lunch we sampled some wines while sitting out on their massive deck/patio over looking the vineyards and amphitheater.
