My spouse and I really liked his place. The setting in a former chapel is charming, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. We saw the mixing class in progress at the other table as we took part in a tasting. The price for this was extremely reasonable considering the generousness of the pours and the number of wines tasted, which was about eight or nine. We learned that no grapes were actually grown on the islands; neither were the peaches and strawberries that went into the fruit wines we tasted. Bahama Barrels does, however, make wines from tamarind, mango, and sea grapes, which are all locally sourced. The wines were delicious, with the exception of one, the bulk of which went directly into the beaker placed there for swill. After a bit of back and forth the group at the table decided the closest thing to its peculiar flavor was clams, and who wants clam wine? So we got a good laugh and interesting conversation with fellow cruise passengers from another ship, in addition to tasting some very nice wines.

This was an enjoyable way to spend an hour or so. We were glad we did!

The Bahama's only winery, if you enjoy wine you must stop at Bahama Barrels. They import their grapes, but make their wine at the winery and have a large selection. We only had time for the tasting, not the tour, but really enjoyed it. The young man running the tasting room was very personable, funny and a lot of fun. There was a fun group of people all in there tasting wine, swapping stories, and having a good time.

We were in port for the day on a cruise and booked a private wine tasting and blending session at Bahama Barrels. It was a 15 minute walk from the cruise port. This is a small winery and the only winery in the Bahamas. The private room was air conditioned (big bonus) and inviting. We were lucky to have the sommelier, Ravelle, who was wonderful. She did an excellent job of describing the wines and was very knowledgeable. The best part was the wine blending and getting to make our own bottles of wine. This was a fun process and we were then able to fill the bottle, cork it and label it. The price was very reasonable and it was a very fun time for us and our friends. Highly recommended ! Thank you Ravelle!

Poorly organized. Sample wine was overly sweet to draw tourists in. Flight was a nightmare with unknowledgeable staff. Only time they are open is when ships are in port but the crowds make this place unusable

We visited this from our cruise ship. It was an easy half mile walk to the place (uphill at the end going there, but downhill on the return ;)). Ravelle was our guide. She was funny, knowledgeable and made us all feel very welcome. We learned about the different wines they produced and were able to blend them to our liking to create our own special blend to bottle and bring home. The place was an old church so that added to the ambience. Make sure you have find before you do this. There is a lot of fun wine tasting going on! Highly recommend if you've been to Nasdau before and want something different and adult fun.

The wine mixing class at Bahama Barrels was a real delight! I stumbled upon it by happenstance and had a wonderful time. The instructor was informative and passionate about the winery which made the session fun and interesting. On top of all that I walked out with two bottles of custom blended wine with a family label. They even save your specific formula so you can order it again! A real treat tucked away in the Graycliff complex. Highly recommended.

We stopped into Bahama Barrels to kill some time before leaving for the airport. The tasting of 6 wines was $5. The wines were all "overripe" if you're into wine tasting, but were tasty enough. The wines are also very affordable.

Service was A++

Found this place when looking for a restroom for my son, what a great mistake! We were able to in short order explore the wines and purchase some to take home with us; they were just as good at home. The only problem....they are hard to get here at home. We look forward to returning.

We were on a cruise and popped in for a tasting.
The tasting was great. The wine was very good. I purchased a bottle of the Primitivo. 3 days later I opened the wine to discover it was no where near the same wine I tasted.it wasn't corked. It was cheap. Either they are storing it wrong or they are selling crap to the tourists. So disappointing! But it's not like I can go back and complain.

Great fun and highly recommended. Staff was wonderful!! We got to blend our own wine with the help of an expert and left with a bottle of your creation. It was a great value and tons of fun!! Be careful drinking your "mistakes", you could find it difficult to walk back to the cruise ship.
