Farmer & The Frenchman

Their signature vineyard-to-table cuisine is based on the natural link to their vineyard. Looking as a model to the historic European wineries and wine growing regions, there is an intrinsic link and original “locavore” focus where virtually all food is produced and consumed locally.

Farmer & The Frenchman

Eat in the winery, taste some wines, stroll the vineyard, and extend your stay in one of the cabins. They invite you to take part in the essence of Kentucky. Sit back on their sun-drenched patio, and enjoy the vistas and beauty of the bluegrass while tasting the fruits of their labor.
