Vineyards enchant visitors with rustic charm and free-flowing wine, unlike most farms, where smelly animals lie on the barn floor and refuse to share their whiskey. Stroll through open fields with this Groupon.
For $81, you get a one-night, weekday getaway for two (up to a $174 total value).
The getaway includes:
Elk Creek Vineyards
Ensconcing visitors in spacious rooms surrounded by 30 lush acres of grapevines, Elk Creek Vineyards merges the grandeur of Napa Valley with Kentucky hospitality. Among three discrete lodgings, the Estates' wraparound deck sounds the creak of rocking chairs, the Inn's communial living room welcomes late-night conversation, and the Lodge's private decks open up onto vineyard and lake. Live entertainment Friday through Sunday keeps eardrums occupied, and a gallery exhibits the creations of local artists. During tastings and tours, guests sample the vineyard's products and stroll through the fields, popping grapes to figure out which ones are alcoholic, and a variety of wine gifts are on hand for visitors to peruse. The tasting specialists offer a free tour of the winery Monday through Saturday at 10:30 am and 4:00 pm and at 1:30 pm and 5:30 pm on Sundays. Wine and painting parties are offered and the tasting room can be booked for special events, holding up to 30 people, or 20 seated, and wine and cheese is provided.
