River Valley Winery, Inc., and Llamas Land

Making Kentucky Wines For You Since 2001

While discussing our life on our honeymoon at the Black Sea, we began a romantic dream of  winemaking and farming.

Our Kentucky & Bulgarian heritage, experience, passion and love for agriculture just blended naturally.  

It seems like we just started yesterday and it's hard to believe that we have been producing International award winning wines for over 17 years now!  

We pride ourselves on providing you  a warm and friendly environment where you will feel right at home. You can have a glass of wine in our winery equipped with a flat screen television or bring a picnic, sit under the arbor and enjoy the beautiful view, the garden, flowers and the llamas on llama land!  

We are located less than 6 miles from I-71, and midway between Louisville, KY  and Cincinnati, OH.  Less than 30 minutes from Belterra Casino, historic Madison, Indiana, General Butler State Park, Kentucky Speedway and right next door to Llamas Land.

Come in as our guest and leave feeling like family!  Take your time and experience a European feel with Kentucky hospitality at  River Valley Winery.
