Reid’s Livery Winery

Owner and wine grower Rex Reid opened Reid’s Livery Winery in the Spring of 2009, with a vision of creating Alvaton’s finest small farm winery. Self trained on the farm,  he creates  berry & grape wines with an extensive passion for perfection. We have won Three Commissioner’s Culps for the Best Boutique Wine in Kentucky, and over 250 awards for our wine since 2009. Most of them from International Judges from Fingerlakes International to Indy International, Wines of the South to Snoma California’s US National and others. .

Rex opened the doors of Reid’s Livery Winery in the Spring of 2009. Before opening the doors, he spent the previous three years producing the finest home grown wines.  Since we have won over 250 international medals and the Kentucky Commissioner Cup three times  for the best wine in the state!

Unique Wines from Kentucky.  Rex Reid is a wine grower. This means our wines are completely made on the farm.  Our estate wines are grown, picked and made into wine right here on the farm.

All of our wines, with a few exceptions, are harvested localy in Kentucky.  We have imported juice from New York for our award winning wines: Silver Streak, Diamonds and Lace, Cranberry Pleasure, and Blue Moon of Kentucky.
 

Critics and patrons agree.  Reid’s Livery Winery is best wine bar in Alvaton.

We invite you to come and experience the taste of Alvaton.

Absolutely the best winery we have ever visited. Can’t say enough good things about the wine. And the owners. Outstanding. We tried all 17 wines on the list plus a few extra special ones. And left with several bottles after hanging out on the front...

My husband and I visited Reid’s for a tasting and had a fantastic time! We were allowed to try all 17 wines Rex had, in a relaxing and personal environment. We had such a hard time deciding which wines not to buy! Everything was delightful!...

We stayed here overnight in our camper. We found this winery through Harvest Host and this was our first stay. The owner's are friendly, welcoming and we loved all of the animals! We purchased a few bottles of wine. Hope that we can visit once...
