This bottle was a Christmas gift from my sister-in-law.

This Reisling won a bronze medal at the 2011 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. It is easy to taste why. The flavor is crisp, fruity, and smooth going down.

A delicious summery drink, this white is not too sweet but not too dry. For $12.99, this is an excellent bottle. I look forward to trying other wines in Lovers Leap’s collection.

Lovers Leap is a winery near Lawrenceburg, KY, that has several other wines including a Vidal Blanc, Merlot, and a Cabernet Sauvignon.  According to their website, they use only Kentucky grapes in their wines. Started in 2001, the winery has the capacity to produce over 30,000 gallons in steel tanks with an additional 10,000 in oak barrels (KY Tourism site). 

This winery is proof that Kentucky has a wine industry just as good as its bourbon. Bravo!
