Kinkead Ridge has been selected by Les Amis D'Escoffier Society of Cincinnati for induction into the Cincinnati Culinary Hall of Fame. The induction will be held at Hilton Netherland Plaza on Sept. 9 2014.

Jackie leaves the winery with the last bottle of 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon!


Kinkead Ridge White Revelation wins Silver Medal at Indianapolis International wine competition.

Chef Julie Frances (Nectar) brought our 2011 Cab Franc to the James Beard dinner, CincyinNY. Other chefs included Jean Robert, Jose Salazar and others. We have had reports that our wine was the best wine served that evening! So I ask those of you who dine at these Cincinnati restaurants to ask for Kinkead Ridge wine! The 2013 white wines are awesome. See this link for the story: 


Kinkead Ridge featured in Opus Vino, the internationally published Wine Reference book, and in 1000 Great Everyday Wines from the World's Best Wineries.





Kinkead Ridge 2011 Cabernet Franc wins a GOLD MEDAL and Kinkead Ridge 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon wins a SILVER (other silver medalists included E&G Gallo... some silvers were not estate grown but made with California fruit, all were 2009 or 2010 vintages... if we entered this wine next year with a year of bottle age, it's probably a gold) at the 2013 American Wine Society Commercial Competition. The Cabernet Sauvignon was also awarded an Award of Merit at the Invitational Jefferson Cup. 

Accolades for the 2011 Cabernet Franc from Adam Fleischer, The Wine Spot, Cleveland Ohio

"The 2011 Cabernet Franc was poured alongside wines from Burgundy, Bordeaux, Champagne and California cult wines such as Sine Quo Non and Cayuse at the graduation night of W2U 2013, the Walla Walla University. Winemakers from Walla Walla and attendees from around the country from places like the Ritz Carlton Naples, Bouchon, Disneyworld and others were talking about this great wine from Southern Ohio!"

"Why go for those long distance relationships when you can find love in your own back yard."
