  • My husband and I drove to Elk Creek Vineyards just to see what it was like and to taste their wines. I am so glad we did. The wine tasting was great and it gave us an opportunity to try some of their ...  read more »
  • Very underwhelming. We booked a reservation from Saturday at 3 to Sunday at 11am. We planned to arrive and do a tour and tasting and then dinner Saturday, and to have breakfast and then shoot sporting...  read more »
  • Great lunch. We sat inside because it was so hot but they have a great patio we walked on for a bit. I think it was understaffed because we didn't get full attention while having a tasting and checkin...  read more »
  • We stayed at the estates lodging at Elk Creek and were very pleased! It is very clean and well kept. The breakfast is great! There is also free wifi and good cell phone reception at the estates!
  • Elk Creek has a lovely set-up. The veiws are breath taking and very relaxing. It is in the middle of nowhere, which was part of the point to me. The wine is fantastic, please try the cab. However, the accommodations were somewhat sub par. There were several imperfections in the rooms (such as the sink not having the appropriate knobs, some of the blinds on the door were broken, etc.). I took the tour which was free, however I would have paid $5-$10 to have a knowledgable tour guide. I felt like the poor thing was all over the place on the discussion and didn't really know much about the processes. The staff were overall nice, but the customer service side of things could be enhanced to give a better experience to customers. I had the Margherita pizza at dinner & it was so good! On the other side of that, the "continental breakfast" was just that--- zero protein options, coffee, hot water to make oats, cereal, a few bagel and muffin options, and a couple pieces of waxy fruit. It would def. be in the best interest of the company to invest in a waffle maker and some eggs/bacon or even a Greek yogurt. I would probably come back for a day trip, but not an overnight.
  • I have been to several vineyards but this was my favorite, Very beautiful. Food was excellent and the wine tasting was wonderful. Will definitely come back
  • Nice setting. So so food.
  • Lovely environment and atmosphere but service and food had a lot to be desired. Wine tasting was good as well as the tour. Ordered the prime rib dinner and it came out cold. Girlfriend ordered Caesars salad with salmon and it never came out. Mine was delivered about 10 minutes before her no show meal. Very disorganized. It is the largest winery in Kentucky, but definitely needs better staffing. Very disappointed in the service. Will probably never go back.
