It is 2 dollars for 5 tasting. It is our first stop of the wine tasting in the area. The staff is kind and friendly. The dessert wine is our favorite. It also has a nice balcony looking to the vineyard.

Beautiful location and good wine. Tasting was only $2 for 5 wines. Did find a couple of that we liked a lot to buy and bring home. Nice gift shop where we were able to buy a few souvenirs.

We have visited here for some 9 years and have seen their tasting room grow and improve in size. Madeline the wine steward/customer service person has been their a while and knows her business and is extremely customer friendly....love working with her. Their Meritage Blend of 2896 is wonderful...as is their Apple Ice Cider....what a wonderful taste...enjoy.

We had a great time at Bowers Harbor. We "tasted" quite a few excellent wines and bought 2 bottles of dry white (we had never been white wine drinkers until we had Bowers Harbor whites). The staff members are very knowledgeable and friendly.

I so enjoy visiting Bowers Harbor Vineyard. The staff is always so nice and welcoming. The new updates to accommodate more people are great. It is always so relaxing to get a glass of wine and sit outside surrounded by the vineyards. On a recent trip, they brought out a bottle of sparkling raspberry juice for our kids and let... More

We are in town for a month each summer and always stop at Bowers at least 6 times. It is even better in late fall.

Visited again this weekend and were not disappointed. Like the small updates they've made, and especially loved that they showed the loud bus groups and bachelorette parties out to the patio! I felt like we were tripping over drunk bridesmaids at some other wineries, but here we were actually able to enjoy our tasting without rolling our eyes at selfies... More
