    Buffalo Trace Distillery Tour and
    Where to get AAA Ten Year
    If you're at Buffalo Trace, when you exit the distillery you'll probably turn right, toward downtown
    Frankfort. Instead go left. In a short distance, there's a little liquor store on the right. They 
    should have whatever Buffalo Trace product you need. You might think they get a lot of traffic from
    the distillery but they don't, since you pretty much have to know they're there.

Wines

Columbia-Crest Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot are good

Quote from a friend about Rieslings: My favorite is Fetzer's Riesling. I think it is better than the Chateau St. Michelle, although I have not had the Relax. Riesling is actually my favorite wine and Fetzer is my favorite that I have tried. Something also close to a Riesling is called Guwertraminer. I don't know how to spell that exactly. Fetzer makes a great one of both and they run about $8-11 depending on where you buy it. I have found both wines at local grocery stores, World Market and Beverages and More stores. Costco has a good selection too.
