On Tuesday, voters decided the fate of the popular Farmer and the Frenchman Winery and Cafe located in Henderson County, Kentucky. 

The restaurant is located in a dry zone left over from a vote in the 1940’s.  People who live in the Anthoston precinct got to vote whether or not to allow the sale of wine and other alcoholic beverages.

Polls were opened from 6 am - 6 pm at  the Bellfield Baptist Church on Tuesday, Aug. 28th.

According to the Gleaner Tuesday evening:

unofficial results Tuesday night showed 324 voting "yes" to 54 voting "no" on the very narrow question of allowing a small farm winery or wineries to serve alcohol in the Anthoston voting precinct.

On a personal note, I had a chance to visit The Farmer and the Frenchman in July and fell in love with this place!  I'm thrilled they can keep their liquor license because my husband and I want to go back there again.  We enjoyed their wine tastings and ordered some pizza & garlic rolls.  Try to visit before it turns cold so you can hang out on their huge, beautiful outdoor patio overlooking their vineyards with gorgeous landscaping and flowers that attracted the butterflies. Of course, you can always enjoy everything they have to offer inside their spacious restaurant.
