Proudly pioneering Kentucky’s newest product – Kentucky Table Wines

Bravard Vineyards & Winery is a small family owned winery located in the pleasant rolling hills of western Kentucky

Located northeast of downtown Hopkinsville, Bravard Vineyards & Winery has been a licensed commercial winery since 1992. This vineyard offers a variety of activities throughout the year.

Harvest Celebration takes place each year in mid-October when the leaves in north Christian County are at their peak of brilliance. The event hosts two live bluegrass bands with plenty of dancing, picnicking, and a variety of events for every age. Poetry reading is conducted in the upper vineyard with its peaceful backdrop, where visitors are invited to bring their poetry to read. As is the case with every special event at the vineyard, free wine tastings and tours are offered to guests.

The Christmas Open House celebrates the vineyard’s anniversary each year. Highlights include a free bottle of wine to every 19th customer and a drawing for a gift basket of Jim’s homemade bread along with meat, cheese, fruit, candy, and a bottle of wine of the winner’s choice.

For birthdays, anniversaries, or other special events, the Bravards offer a unique opportunity to picnic on the grounds with someone special. For $50 per couple, guests are seated at a candlelit table for two in a secluded and quaint location of the vineyard.

They provide a picnic basket full of cheeses, fresh bread, fruit, sausages, crackers, desserts, sweets, and a select bottle of wine. They also offer the unusual experience of dinner in the vineyard, priced individually, for groups of up to 20 people, complete with a table set with candles or kerosene lanterns. Guests may bring their own food or have it catered.
