The Friends of McConnell Springs and more than 15 wineries are sponsoring the 8th Annual Wine Barrel Tasting for the Springs on March 28, 2015, in and near Lexington. After saying goodbye to winter, this last Saturday in March event is a perfect time to explore the wineries and countryside in Central Kentucky.
For a fee of $20 per person, participants have the opportunity to travel to any of the participating wineries to sample wine in its final stages before the actual bottling and release of the finished product. The wineries will be open 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Proceeds of the event will help the "Friends" support the education, restoration, and preservation programs at the Park.
