Our second stop of the day on our annual “girls’ weekend”, was to Talon Winery in Lexington, Kentucky!
Here is the tasting room. As you can see, the grounds and scenery were lovely!
According to Wikipedia…the oldest known winery is located in the “Areni-1” cave in the Vayots Dzor Province of Armenia. Archaeologists announced the discovery of this winery in January 2011, seven months after the world’s oldest leather shoe, the Areni-1 shoe, was discovered in the same cave. The winery, which is over six thousand years old, contains a wine press, fermentation vats, jars, and cups. “The fact that winemaking was already so well developed in 4000 BC suggests that the technology probably goes back much earlier.”
It’s a good thing this glass wasn’t used!!
