Tucked off a side road in Shelbyville and in a gorgeous building with soft lighting and tables for two is an award-winning winery known for its luscious wines and laidback ambiance. Talon Winery, voted “Best Winery” by readers of Kentucky Living magazine in the 2016 “Best in Kentucky” contest, is a picture-perfect setting for a romantic evening out to celebrate an anniversary or share a memorable date.

“Couples can come in and share a bottle of wine to sip at their leisure,” says Talon’s Lauren Manuel. “Bring a little picnic to pair with your wine.”

Open year-round, Talon has indoor seating, porch seating and even space overlooking a beautiful rock quarry. Wine tastings are offered seven days a week at the winery and no reservations are needed. Live music takes place every weekend at Talon’s in Shelbyville as well as its Lexington location.

“If you and your sweetheart want a more sociable night, join us for live music from 4-7 p.m. on Saturdays,” Manuel says. “It’s free and great for a double date night!”

An especially romantic pour at Talon Winery is its new Sugar Lips brand wine, made at the Shelbyville location. There are five wines in this line, including Crimson Kiss, Pinot Gris, Blush, Peach and Mango.

For the Valentine’s Day season, Talon’s is offering a special promotion with Crimson Kiss – can there be a more accurately named wine for such a kissy holiday? Plan an evening at Talon Winery to toast your amore and sip a bottle of Crimson Kiss, a semi-sweet red, from two 11-oz keepsake wine glasses for just $20. Call 502-633-6969 for more information.
