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. 

Our new tasting room is now open to the public. We are located on 915 E. Liberty St. Reservations are not needed for tastings! We accept all walk-ins. Dogs and kids are allowed with outdoor seating available as well! Come enjoy tastings, wine slushies, charcuterie boards, etc... 

Hours of operation:

Monday: CLOSED

Tuesday - Saturday: 12:00 - 8:00PM

Sunday: 12:00 - 4:00PM


*can only ship to select states.
