WELCOME TO OLD 502 WINERY!
THE ONLY URBAN WINERY IN KENTUCKY; where the grapes are outsourced, but the wine is made right here in the Phoenix Hill/Nulu neighborhood. Not having our own vineyard gives us the ability to craft some of the most eclectic — dare we say funky — wines you’ll ever have the pleasure of tasting.
From wine aged in Bourbon Barrels to the "chocolate grapes" we use in our After Choc... we have it all!
Old 502 wine can be found in liquor stores all over Kentucky or can be shipped straight to your door*.
Forget what you know about wine and wineries, because we're breaking all the rules. At Old 502 Winery, we think of ourselves as an anti-winery.
New Tasting Room and event space coming soon! Stay tuned for updates!
*can only ship to select states.
After 10 years, River Bend Winery on South 10th Street was in need of an overhaul. Old 502 Winery was brought to life, creating the very first Old 502 wine: Bourbon Barrel Red.
Run for the Rosé
We're proud to be from Louisville and there's nothing more Louisville than the Derby! In 2014, we began our partnership with the Kentucky Derby Festival by producing the first batch of our "Run for the Rosé" the official wine of the festival.
New Tanks = More Wine
18,000 gallons of capacity in the form of new tanks was added to our production facility allowing us to double our capacity, resulting in more wine making!
Tasting Room Expansion
After 6 years of making wine, there was a need to expanded our Tasting Room. Taking over the space from the restaurant Over the 9, the tasting room we all know and love today was born.
Reintroducing Gift Baskets with a new eCommerce platform
Old 502 introduced a new eCommerce website allowing our fans to now purchase wine and gift baskets online.
New Tasting Room Opens
After moving from our location on South 10th Street, we opened our new location on East Liberty Street in a shared building with our sister company Falls City Brewery.
