Springhill Winery and Vineyard
The process of growing grapes and preparing them for wine is a process we undertake with great care.
Our three-acre vineyard is nestled in quiet Bloomfield, Kentucky--just outside historic Bardstown. Preparations begin late in the Spring when family members gather on Easter Sunday to perform a "Blessing of the Vineyard" ceremony followed by a large plantation lunch. Once the ground has been consecrated, we begin planting for our upcoming season. Soil is loamy with magnesium deposits and limestone. These nutrients, combined with water and sunlight, contribute to the rich color and hearty flavors of our wines. Our white wines are very fruity with a great deal of body in the flavor.
Our varieties of wines include Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon, Chambourcin, and Chardonnay. We have partnered with neighboring vineyards to provide Riesling, Syrah and other varieties of wines.
Relax in a rocking chair in our gazebo with a glass of your favorite wine in hand as you gaze over the scenic vineyard. Stroll through the grounds early in the morning or enjoy a beautiful sunset surrounded by the grape vines. Come out in late Summer to watch our workers anxiously harvest the grapes for wine-making.
