We stopped by on a Saturday for a tasting around noon, it was not busy so we got right in. Cheap to taste all of the wines and we kept the glasses. The people working were great and knew the product. ... read more »

Of the four wineries we visited this day, Jowler Creek was my favorite. Other wineries nearby are "tasting rooms" only with actual vineyards not on site. However, Jowler Crrek has the luscious vines i... read more »
What an annexing experience! The owners and staff truly go above all expectations! They are a self-sustaining farm (bat houses, chickens, sheep) and so proud of it! Whether hit stopping in for a tasting or one of the many events they host (wine and craft night, food pairing, holiday events, movie night, live music....)you are going to have a phenomenal time.

Our group visited Jowler Winery for wine tasting on a Saturday night. We felt the winery offered a great atmosphere, but fell short for wine and food quality. Good setting. Jowler Creek Winery is set among a wonderful landscape of rolling hills and farms approximately 20 minutes East of Weston. Their tasting room in located in what appears to be a nicely converted barn that offers a great atmosphere with several tables and a small bar. We attended on a Saturday night when the tasting room was full and lively, but still provided our party with a comfortable atmosphere. Jowler also has outdoor seating which is complimented with live music on Saturday nights. Mediocre Wine. Our party tried the sampler. We didn't think any of the wines were bad, but nothing caught our attention. We found most of the wines to be generally too sweet or dry, but this is obviously just a matter of our taste, as many other groups were buying bottles - just our preference. Food Options. I was let down with their food options. Obviously Jowler Winery isn’t a restaurant, and only offers food to supplement wines, but I expected more for the $21 Meat, Cheese, and Bread bucket. I think the bucket is a novel concept and fits the atmosphere, but I found the cheese and meat to be generally tasteless and bland, and didn’t complement the wines. Overall Jowler Winery has a nice atmosphere but I think it falls short for wines and food.
We were looking forward to trying the wine tasting at Fowler Creek winery. We have been to a number of wine tastings (in Missouri and California) but this place was our least favorite winery we have ever experienced. First, the pourer (Kate) gave us thimble-full amounts to taste in our glasses and I'm not kidding. We were a bit taken back. We were not impressed with the wine, but we decided to purchase the glasses. Our server asked us to fetch the glasses ourselves we just used from the table inside. Pretty rude. Needless to say, we cannot and will not recommend this place to anyone.
Cool place. Wine was just okay for me. Everyone likes something different though!
We have heard about this winery and looked for it several times over the years. Found it today and what a day. We tasted all the wines. Traminette is a semi-dry white wine. Delightful bouquet. Winemaker’s notes: While this hybrid grape is relatively new to its midwestern habitat, Traminette is quickly becoming everyone’s favorite. This tasty wine is loaded with fruity scents and crawling with pear, green apple, and citrus flavors. Jowler Creek Nort Winemaker’s notes: This one-of-a-kind dessert style blend of Norton grapes will keep you warm and toasty as you curl up by the fire in your cave on a cool fall night or mid-winter day. Scents of blackberries, plums, and chocolate will fill your nose. It begs to be sipped with chocolate desserts, nuts, or cheese with a little bite. This is a wonderful addition to our early fall evenings at home. Our favorite fun wine was the Red Cock a-Doodle-do. The sweet red wine has a hint of the Concord and Nort (I think) and is a great sipping wine with new friends. They have snack buckets with great salami, cheese, and warm tasty breads.
