When taking in the wineries of in the Shawnee area do not miss Lincoln Heritage! ALL of the wines I tasted were excellent. The quality was superior to the other wineries who were catering more to a bachelorette party set. If your goal is tasting fine wine, Lincoln Heritage is a must try.

The two winery dogs helped as well, since I am a huge dog person. The grounds were pretty, but I'm sure they're beautiful when... More
