Bluegrass & Backroads: Elk Creek Vineyards, the state’s largest winery, known for more than wine

Originally purchased as a hunting site in 1995, the Elk Creek Vineyards, covering 30 acres in Owen County, is now the largest winery in the Commonwealth. Go for a glass of wine or to attend Elk Creek’s popular summer concert series.

Kentucky is a state defined by its history and noted for a number of things, not the least of which is horse racing, bourbon, bluegrass music and barbecue.

But, as natives Bob Shrader and Matt Hilton remind us each week, there’s so much more to the Bluegrass State and its people, culture and rural charm. Shrader and Hilton combine their talents to produce the award-winning Bluegrass & Backroads, a 30-minute program aired regionally on the Kentucky Education Television networks and nationally via satellite on RFD-TV through Dish Network, DirecTV and several major cable outlets.
