We went for the tasting and Megan was the server. She was still learning about the winemaking but was eager to learn and lovely to us. We tasted a number of wines and our favourites were the Cab Rose, Equestrian Merlot and the Passionate Kiss which is a dessert red with chocolate so perfect for a chocolate dessert! The port (apologies I can't remember the name) was also very good. Well worth a visit.

A friend and I were traveling through Kentucky enjoying the beautiful backroads the state has to offer. We happened upon Equus Run Vineyard and Winery on a cool rainy day. But once we walked in the warmth and friendly ladies working there totally warmed us up. Sonja and Sky were excellent hostesses! We enjoyed the wines. We walked around outside a bit despite the weather and it appears to be a lovely venue. Would highly recommend.

My first visit to a Kentucky winery and I am impressed. Samantha, the tasting steward, was very helpful in explaining the varieties of wines and the notes I might taste. The sparkling rosé was good, as were the 2 merlots.
Not enough time this trip to visit more wineries in the Lexington area. I guess that means I get to come back!

We really enjoyed our afternoon at Equus Run. We went with friends who have a Club membership which allowed the 6 of us to sample several different wines. The biggest problem was the computer system which really slowed things down. It took a long time to actually pay for the wines that we had chosen. Equus also has available for sale several cheeses, meats and crackers to enjoy with your wine. All very good!

My wedding day at Equus Run was perfect! The staff at Equus Run were extremely helpful and made me feel like family. The staff and event manager, Becky, went out of their way to accommodate all of our many requests during the planning of our wedding and reception. Equus Run is the perfect wedding venue! It is also an excellent place to visit for a wine tasting, or to enjoy live music on the weekends! The grounds are beautiful and the wine is top notch! Great place to visit in the heart of horse country.
