Brix Bubbly is a favorite! Even got a treat for my dog while there. Looking forward to returning soon and spending more time there.

My husband and I went on a wine tasting tour here and this winery was by far our favorite! We are not wine experts and the staff was excellent at helping us choose the best wines for our tastes. The Riesling Late Harvest was our favorite! Nice and smooth, no bitterness. Just delicious! The patio is beautiful, bought a glass... More

My wife and I visited in winter 2010 and enjoyed it so much we took a group of 7 back last week - everyone loved it and bought something! Despite having a full tasting room, their excellent, knowledgeable staff provide a very personal, friendly, and inviting tasting experience for the entire group be they a novice or experienced wine lover....

I couldn't have wished for a better evening spent with friends. We had the most perfect summer evening - sun was out, but with a light breeze. We were greeted with sparking wine and an array of cheese and meats (including duck and venison). Our lobster dinner was great and included shrimp, artichoke hearts, sausage, corn & potatoes. We went... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the lobster dinner in the vineyard. A few pointers for those attending a similar event at BHV: wear your sunglasses, bring your camera/phone, if wearing heels wear chunky ones (you'll be walking on grass/hard dirt). Dinner was in a gorgeous setting. My only "complaint" was that the initial greeting/paying was sort of unorganized and lengthy. Overall I'd... More

Friendly staff , well acquainted with the wines that they served. Liked that if you said you liked one they could identify what your favorite wines probably were.

Found this Old Mission winery by accident and were very glad that we did. Bowers Harbor Vineyard was a smaller winery that was off the beaten path. The first time we were there they had a tour bus there so things were a bit disjointed and the wait for tastings was a touch long. A separate waitress stand or bar... More

We stopped in with our two small children while visiting the area. The staff was extremely knowledgable and gracious. The wine and ciders are amazing! The atmosphere is relaxed and our little ones loved playing outside among the grapes. We will definitely be back!

Bowers Harbor Winery is all you've imagined a quaint little winery to be. It has old world charm & views to match. You can order a cheese platter and enjoy one of the many fine wines they produce. We've been going their for years and loved their wine dog Cooper, he added charm to the experience. Although he passed away... More
