Since 1997, Wildside has been growing fresh fruit on 30 acres of rolling farmland just a few miles south of Versailles. The winery was dubbed "Wildside" because of the abundance of wildflowers growing there and their minimal use of pesticides. Today they have over eleven acres of grapes, three acres of fruit trees, and 1.5 acres of berries.
Wildside Winery is on its eleventh year as a Kentucky winery specializing in making quality wines from Kentucky-grown grapes and fruit. They make over 30 wines in all styles, from a range of dry reds to white wines and sweeter fruit wines. Wildside also hosts weddings, meetings, parties, and reunions. Cheese trays and snack items are also available.

When Tommy and Debbie McIntyre moved into the family farm in 1987, they casually started making wine from wild berries on their land. But as the years went by, their love for winemaking grew and the amount of wild berries declined. So the pair decided to fill their farm with blueberry and blackberry vines so they could make their fruit wines in earnest. Today, they specialize in blueberry and blackberry wines, made from handpicked, sun-ripened fruits in a choice of dry or sweet vintages. To complement these, the McIntyres also offer a select number of wines made from other fruits, such as strawberries and elderberries. Customers who want to see how the wine is made up close can come for a tour or tasting, or simply pick berries for a family-friendly outing.

Mike Hatzell is no stranger to agriculture—or wine, for that matter. As a young man, he tilled the soil of his aunt and uncles farm during the summer months, and years later when he served in France, he developed a love for wine. When he and his wife, Karen, were married more than 50 years ago, he planted the idea in her mind: one day, they would own and operate their own winery.
Back in 2007, that dream eventually came to fruition with the inception of Brooks Hill Winery. Joined by winemakers Butch Meyer and Mike Miller, the operation was in full force in just a year, and they have continued to expand and diversify their selection of wines. A number of them can be sampled at their on-site tasting room, which, despite the sound of it, is not a room that drinks wine.
With its lavender- and khaki-colored walls, cozy seating setups, and fireplace, Forest Edge Winery comes off more as a family's living room than a business. At the heart of its warm presentation sits a wrap-around bar, with pantries and shelves and cabinets nearby filled with, what else, but bottles of wine. That community-driven theme carries throughout the facility, including a downstairs children's room stocked with a television and creative activities. Outside, visitors venture in from the edge of the historic Bernheim Forest on Clermont Road–the start of Kentucky's bourbon trail.
