“Remote and relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

This winery and it's vineyards are "off the beaten path". This is indeed a positive as it feels like a mini-vacation to head there. The tasting building is lovely and large! Staff are very helpful and wine knowledgeable. Nice selection of wine themed souvenirs and gift items in their store area. Reasonable tasting fee which they are entirely fine with you splitting, if a couple. Purchased a "skinny botttle" of a blend called "Twice" created because of drought conditions , a perfect example of coming up with a solution with less than ideal circumstances. "Twice" is a blend of Vignoles and Traminette and is one of the best wines we have had, anywhere. Combine a visit here with Oliver Winery and dine in Bloomington at one of their many amazing eateries for a nice day away from home.

“Great Winery, located in Picturesque Unionville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is the main winery, with a tasting room, nice covered deck, and very friendly staff. It is in a quaint little town just outside of Bloomington. A must visit for those traveling through or even if you are on a weekend trip. Their wines are outstanding.

“Great Wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

We tried Butler wine a year ago at a different location. We were in Bloomington and decided to try the tasting room there. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable with the wine on hand. The wine is great for the value! You can also find the Butler wines at many grocery stores but this tends to be the sweeter wines.

“Jewel of Lake lemon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Off the southwest corner of beautiful Lake Lemon lies this small family Winery. Wonderful tasting room as well as nice spacious covered outdoor deck. We particularly enjoyed the Riesling inspired Special Reserve White. Very relaxing vibe here-out in the middle of nowhere. Highly recommended!

“Wine country”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

Not bad. I'm more of a fan of sweet wines and theirs seem to be more dry. Easy to find. Friendly staff.
