    We are a group of about 20 that frequented this event for several years in a limo bus. However, the past few years this date always conflicts with Fayette County Spring Break. (When you are all mommas, this can be problematic because we are traveling) We would love to attend this event or a similar event if you know of any others that are going on for a different date. Can you please advise if there are other dates available or know of any similar events throughout? Thanks for any help you can provide!

      Hi Cynthia- Bummer about the timing with the Barrel Tasting. It’s a drive to Louisville, but another event to check out is the KY Proud Derby Festival WineFest which will be April 30 and May 1. Always a great time!
