The Purple Toad Winery & Vineyard


WKU Libraries kicked off the 12th season of "Kentucky Live!" speaker series with a program about one of the newest and most acclaimed vineyards and wineries in Kentucky started by WKU alum Allen Dossey. The Purple Toad Winery sits on the edge of Paducah, KY and includes a tasting room, walkable vineyard, and a facility that can be rented for parties, weddings and other social events. Mr. Dossey introduced his business and shared his knowledge of grape growing, wine brewing and bottling, as well as advertising with the Bowling Green, KY community members. The event happened on the evening of Thursday, September 11, 2014 at Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Bowling Green, Kentucky. This monthly speaker series is co-sponsored by WKU Libraries and the bookstore.
