Block House Vineyard
Block House is the largest of our vineyards at 292 acres, planted to 12 different varietals, mainly Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Cabernet. The vineyard is named for pioneer George C. Yount’s block house, the first Kentucky style block house west of the Mississippi. In the design of a block house, the top floor juts out over the ground floor so that inhabitants can protect the structure. Block houses were often constructed for defense in frontier areas.
