Notching a decade of grape-rearing experience under 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.
