Our favorite ambiance of all the local wineries. This place has a great vibe! Good tunes, numerous private and group outdoor seating options, and you're nestled amongst the grape trees unlike the other wineries where you can kinda see them... Here you're literally within arms length - very cool. The service was exceptional and we were impressed with the explanation/description... More

The look and feel of this place is what makes it for us, the rustic feel of an old Vinyard, the trelace covered in foliage and of course the wine and hard ciders. This is our favorite Vinyard in all of TC. The staff (Richard) was very friendly and hrlpful. The peach apple cider is worth it in its own... More

We have been here twice and love it. Beautiful setting. I am a fan of their Cabernet Franc. They also have some excellent ciders. Like the cherry apple and pear in particular. They have a tasty array of snacks, and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.

Had a absolute perfect time here, 5 course meal with wine pairing in the middle of a vineyard. Great food, excellent wine and good company, do not miss this.

Bowers Harbor Vineyards is always a favorite place to stop on our annual vacation Up North. The wines and hard ciders are always first-rate. They have recently added additional outside seating. We spent a couple of hours there on two different afternoons last month. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
