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

This one was in our top 2 of the 7 wineries we visited on Old Mission Peninsula. Our server (whom we later found out from our driver was the manager - I believe) was incredibly knowledgeable and so pleasant. I learned SO much from our stop here. Several wines & ciders to choose from. REALLY liked the Cooper. What a... More

We visited on a busy Sunday. We had to wait for a place, and then when we got to the bar we waited 5 minutes to get our first taste. That said, once we were served our experience was good. The wine was very good, especially the dry Riesling. I would recommend this winery, but maybe on quieter days.

We loved it here. It was quaint and almost felt like you were walking into someone's home. The wine was delicious and we enjoyed a glass overlooking their vineyards.

This was our second stop along the peninsula- and our favorite! Kevin not only helped us choose our tastings,( which were delicious) but offered us great places to dine depending on our mood! The service and atmosphere at Bowers Harbor Vineyard will bring us back again and again!! Can't go wrong!

We had a reservation for our group of 14 for a wine tasting at Bowers Harbor in May 2014. Beautiful location and scenery but the place was packed. Although we had a reservation, they seemed unprepared for us and hurried us over to a corner of the gift shop where we stood for the next 15 minutes tasting one rapid... More
