Northern Kentucky is catching on to the winery idea in hopes of boosting tourism in the area.
About two dozen people attended the grand opening of Elk Creek Vineyards on Nov. 24, 2006, in Owen County.
The President of the Northern Kentucky Vintners and Grape Growers Association said the winery will raise the profile of the industry in the region. She also said it could someday be the start of a wine trail there.
There are about 40 wineries in the state.
