Cool tasting room and some nice wines. Love to swing by when they have events as they really take advantage of their space. Love being able to grab a bottle and enjoy it outside on their patio. Just wish there was more parking and more elbow room at the tasting bar. Best to come on a weekday or the off... More

We recently stopped by to taste wines. I was impressed at the number of wines. Liking drier wines, I particularly liked the chardonnay. Reds were also interesting. The staff made us feel like we were family and we spent quite some time talking with them. The apple jack is incredible as are the ciders. And that is coming from someone... More

i highly recommend this winery for several reasons.....especially if you haven't been wine tasting before. First timers are feel welcome here. No intimidating stuffy pourers. The staff is friendly and helpful, explaining the selections. $2 for 5 samples. You feel at home here, and can wear your ball cap and sweatshirt without worry. They have many good wines, but my...

We participated in a macaroni and cheese wine tasting event on mission point. One of the stops and I would say one of my favorites was here. The drive way takes you through a vineyard and then to the tasting room. The parking can be tricky but no big deal. Once inside the tasting room there was a welcoming feeling... More

I can't even explain how much I love BHV! It's so relaxing to get a drink and walk around their beautiful vineyard. You can tell that the staff of Bower's genuinely love their jobs, and the people that come to visit them. We've been to one of their Dining in the Vines events and it was beyond fantastic!!! We have... More

Bowers Harbor is our favorite vineyard on Old Mission. Love the atmosphere and the beautiful setting. The wine it good too! Our friends enjoyed the hard cider. We were there during the MSU/UofM game and they had TV's outside for people to enjoy the game. Very accommodating and welcoming. Can't wait to go back!

We were able to use a coupon from our hotel for this place. Loved the wine. There are a few things you can purchase to eat if you like. There is a fire pit you sit down next to and enjoy the scene.

We spent a rainy day at the Vineyard wine tasting. The wine was really good and the staff were very helpful, and we bought some nice merchandise from the store (glasses, wine bottles and wine rack). The cherry salsa was also very good. We were sad to hear that the Vineyard dog, Brix, was moved to a property a mile... More
