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 currently closed for renovation and the addition of our new restaurant called “FUEGO” opening on Friday May 10th!
