  • We LOVED Bowers Harbor. Their wines and ciders are delicious and the scenery was beautiful as well! They were so accommodating and the staff was very helpful. Photo by Brick Street Studio
  • So. Much. Fun. My first winery. I don’t even drink wine. However, the woman helping us (don’t remember her name- but she has the most beautiful eyes lol). Helped educate me on the sulfates and tangents in the whites and reds, that I’m allergic to. Super super cute place. They were very busy for a Saturday in January???
  • By far our favorite winery! Wonderful wine, atmosphere and you can always find a table to sit outside. We also love going in the winter and enjoy the outdoor fireplace We took a tour for my birthday and the setup a private tasting with a special birthday glass. Great for families as well!
  • What a wonderful place! You cant beat their ciders and their wines! The staff is so welcoming and their outside sitting areas are awesome!
  • Excellent wine and ciders with beautiful scenery. We stopped by for a tasting during a busy time, but we hovered near the outdoor bar and were noticed right away. The woman helping us was amazing: she was helpful and relaxed, despite the fact that she was scurrying around a bit between customers. She chatted with us and lent her personal thoughts (all good!) to the wines and ciders we tried. I wish I could remember her name! The garden/outdoor area is relaxing and offers plenty of shade and side tables if you want to take a glass and enjoy it, or if you need to keep little ones busy. The tasting fee includes your wine glass, which she wrapped up for us. The grapefruit and watermelon ciders were some of the best we've tried, so of course we had to buy some! I noticed a staff member checking on the people sitting in the chairs too, which was nice to see. **My sister went earlier in the day and had a slightly different experience. They also went to outdoor bar area and gentleman serving their tasting kept referring to the ciders as weak, or not their best, hoping the next batch would be better. He also asked if they wanted their glasses (they are included) and seemed a bit put out that she did.
