The difference between the taste of a local wine from a small winery and an imported, mass-produced wine is the distinctive fresh grape flavor. It’s like comparing concord grapes from the vine with grapes from the store. The vineyard grows six varieties of grapes. They include Norton, Chambourcin, St. Vincent, Chardonel, Vignoles, and Seyval and cover a total of 10 acres. The vineyard surrounds a 10 acre lake which provides enough water to irrigate the plants. The vineyard and winery is located near the historical town of Lexington on the Lewis and Clark trail. Lexington is known for the civil war Battle of Lexington fought in Sep.1861. Lexington also has the old Oliver Anderson mansion, restored and furnished in the mid-19th century. In Lexington you will also find many antique shops and Bed and Breakfasts.
