SOMERSET RIDGE VINEYARD AND WINERY
Since planting their first vines in 1998, Dennis and Cindy Reynolds have grown
Somerset Ridge Vineyard and Winery into a business that produces 5,000 cases of wine
each year. Cindy has also spearheaded the promotion of the area’s wine heritage.

The winery has live musical performances each weekend during the growing season,
with food prepared outside by a variety of chefs. September and October is grape harvest
season and their busiest time of year. Cindy suggests making a reservation if you plan a

guests, including fellow Kansans.
“Touring the wineries in the state is a great way to learn about where you’re from,”
says Cindy. “You are tasting the output of your land.”
