Not my favorite wine in Kentucky. Winery was kind of plain on the outside but the inside was very nice! We both had the flight of sweet wine, $5 each for 4 tasting which wasn’t bad at all! But not my favorite taste.

I had to give this a rating, so that's why the average, as we really didn't get to sample or eat here. It's a beautiful country setting. We saw the sign on I-75 for the winery -- what a shame the days of operation aren't...More

Four of us dined on the enclosed patio last Saturday for part of restaurant week. Three of us took advantage of the $27 prie fixe 3-course meal which was wonderful. The French onion soup had just the right amount of cheese on top and not...More

My wife and I had a romantic dinner here last week on our second night in Kentucky. The setting is peaceful as it is on the outskirts of Lexington. The restaurant and winery are situated next to the owner's working farm and most vegetables served...More

We sit in the heart of all that is great, with a view that is timeless. We have taken these products, crafted and grown from across the state and region to create the wine, food, spirits, and cocktails that have made the name Jean Farris so much more than just a brand. For us Jean Farris is the wine, but it is at home on a table filled with friends. Its home is Kentucky.
