Vineyards, Winery & Tours

Owners Chris and Denise Nelson strive to demonstrate what is possible when carefully selected grape varieties are properly matched to the soils and climates in which they may express their true varietal character.

When Chris is not at Pediatric and Adolescent Associates, where he practices medicine full-time, he spends his time maintaining the estate vineyard and carefully crafting each of the Chrisman Mill Wines. Denise holds a Master’s Degree in Architecture, but has been operating the tasting room and the winery business full-time since 2001.

Our Vineyard location in Nicholasville is closed to the public but will be open for special and private events only. Private tours with the Vintner will be available starting in July 2016 (more information posted soon). Meanwhile please visit tasting room located at 3565 Nicholasville Rd. Suite 934, Lexington, KY 40503. On the outside of Fayette Mall next to Chipotle.
