Notching a decade of grape-rearing experience into their corkscrew-crusted belts, Lovers Leap’s vineyard veterans craft 10 varietals into full-flavored liquid libations. Wine tastings for two or four commence in a high-ceilinged, rustic, and ruby-walled tasting room ideal for intimate sips and rounds of bar-counter leapfrog. Participants may sip on an award-winning wine such as the 2008 riesling, winner of the 2010 Kentucky State Fair gold medal, marked by flavors of apricot and lemongrass that unite upon tongues like a flash mob of minutemen. A blackberry dessert wine aids the winding down of meals with its sweet culinary song, whereas the Sloppy Seconds white offers excess grapes of multiple colors and types a chance to escape from their future as raisins or bowling balls for Lilliputians. Revelers can also peruse the tasting room and wine grounds on a self-guided tour, investigating hidden nooks, crannies, and secret passages. Customers can take their sampling glasses home, evoking memories of a day spent far from the fickle whims of constantly changing traffic lights.

Once riders are secure in their saddles, instructors adjust lessons according to their skill level and foster clearer lines of communication with a brief tutorial in horse whispering.
