The Kentucky Wineries Association is a non-profit trade association of Kentucky wineries who cooperate to create a unique experience for wine lovers by hand crafting wines of distinction and offering events along the wine trails of Kentucky. We work to build our collective brand that represents the finest quality wines, southern hospitality, and a genuine Kentucky experience each time you visit one of our member wineries. The Kentucky Wineries Association was founded and chartered in 2007 by ten Kentucky wineries. Today we are over twenty-five strong.


To build public awareness of our member wineries and to promote the high quality of their wines as wines of distinction.

To promote the wine and grape industry in KY and the wine trails, events, and other tourist attractions.
