Springhill Winery and Vineyard
The process of growing grapes and preparing them for wine is a process we undertake with great care.
Our two and half acre vineyard is nestled in the quiet hillsides of Bloomfield, Kentucky - just outside historic Bardstown. Preparations begin early in the year as the vineyard workers arrive to carefully prune the vines for optimum yield and quality. It is vitally important to balance the yield so as not to overproduce the fruit load and weaken the vines' health and quality. The soil is tested for the correct balance of minerals and amended accordingly. The loamy soils here are rich in magnesium and limestone deposits. These nutrients combine with water and sunlight to 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 and mouthfeel.
Our varieties include Chambourcin, Vignoles and Sunbelt. We also work with neighboring vineyards to provide other varieties of grapes for our many blended wines.
Relax outside under our stately elm tree looking out over the vineyard. Stroll through the grounds early in the morning or enjoy a beautiful sunset surrounded by the grapevines. Come out in late Summer / early fall to watch our workers anxiously harvest the grapes for wine-making.
Most wines are available for tasting on a daily basis.
