News & Events
After a very busy Barrel Tasting and Jester Week, we are now deep into Spring and all its wonder and beauty.
February 28, 2013
Hi all, we here at Horseshoe Bend would like to thank everyone that came out for
“A glass of wine, a chocolate or two, and you”
Valentine’s Day celebration. It was a big hit and therefore is on the calendar for next year!
St. Patrick’s Day is fast approaching and the lamb stew will be ready. It will be available on Saturday March 16 and Sunday March 17. The lamb stew features Kentucky lamb!
April 1 is April Fools’ Day. The Jester at Horseshoe Bend plans to begin celebrating his namesake day along with our guests March 31 during the McConnell Springs Barrel Tasting, and continuing on to April 1 and then to April 6. Expect specialized desserts like Strawberry Fool complimenting the Jester and all he does for Horseshoe Bend.
We all know Spring is approaching even though it seems like Old Man Winter will just not
let go. We anticipate a Redbud Festival in April and will post as soon as we see the color begin in our Redbud Forest. Looking forward to the 5th Annual Wildflower Walk and as soon as the path is spruced up and the naturalist contacted a date will be announced. Mark your calendars for May 17 when Sue Massek returns to begin our Burgers and Banjos series.
Remember, we are now open Sundays from 1 to 5pm.
We look forward to seeing you soon!

Hello all. I bet you have been asking yourself what’s going on at Horseshoe Bend Winery? Haven’t heard from them lately. No, we are not in hibernation even though it seems like it. We have been taking this time to improve for 2013 by going to Lexington for conferences on winemaking and marketing. There were many great speakers, my favorite being Elizabeth Slater. I found her to be enthusiastic, motivating, and very knowledgeable. Coming back to the Tasting Room, I am eager to do and use the information Elizabeth told us. So that’s what I have been doing.
It’s your turn. I would like to know what events you our Customer would like to see us have here at Horseshoe Bend Vineyards and Winery. So let me hear from you by email, use firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 859-375-0296 to talk to me. I’ll be looking forward to hearing from you.
Thanks to all of you who came to the Springfield Christmas Crafts and purchased our wines. Remember we have custom gift baskets available, and we will be glad to fix one up for you. Just let us know what you want in it. We also have a Holiday Norton label and new Traminette labels. You just have to see them!
In the spirit of this giving season, Horseshoe Bend is partnering with Willisburg Baptist Church by collecting canned goods to distribute to the less fortunate. Bring 5 canned items to the Winery and receive a logo glass. Pick a white wine glass or a red wine glass each with Horseshoe Bend Logo. Let us help one another.
We wish to thank all of you who have taken time out of your busy schedules to visit us at Horseshoe Bend. There is a lot to do this time of year and a lot to be thankful for. We are thankful for your visits, purchases, and those who join our Case Club. It is you , our customers, that make our jobs so great.
We are getting ready for all you tired Holiday Shoppers. Beginning Black Friday we will stay open on Friday and Saturday until 7pm. So you can stop by for a glass of wine and unwind or pick up a bottle to take home. For that one person on your list that you don’t know what to give, try Pimpin Penguins Riesling or Kong’s Thong Norton.
Looking for a gift for that someone who has everything? How about a bottle of our wine? We have many available. Remember there is 10% off on a case. That way you do not have to decide on just one. Then you will be a Case Club Member!
Thanks for checking us out. Hope to see you soon!
First of all, we would like to thank everyone who stopped by our booths and tasted and bought wine at WineFest, Mainstrasse, and Lexington Center. It was such fun chatting with each of you.
Looking for a new and quiet place to go? Come see us at Horseshoe Bend Tasting Room. We will treat you so well, you won’t want to leave.
