The atmosphere is pretty cute, and I imagine eating on the enclosed patio would be fabulous during daylight hours, so that you could view the grounds. We ate there when dark, and found the patio too chilly and too brightly lit. I would suggest an inside booth in those cases. The food was pretty average - good, but not really... More

Jean Farris Winery is located on a very picturesque central Kentucky road, full of horse farms. The tasting bar is very elegant. The wines were mostly good, we particularly loved a couple of the reds. However, the service was weird. The lady waiting on us routinely insulted us, and though she was joking, it was strange. I can take a... More

I can only review the winery because we did not eat here. But, everything about the tasting room was a disappointment. No one talked to us about the wines, the wines in the flights we tried were not good, and most surprisingly of all was that no one offered us the option of buying the wines we tasted. Oh and...

My husband and I stopped by a few weeks ago and had drinks & a cheese tasting, enjoyed it so much! That day we had reservations for dinner somewhere else but really wanted to come back for dinner, we were able to do so and we were very disappointed! Our service was great! Our appetizer (fried green tomatoes) wonderful &... More

My son sent us a gift card here for dinner. We had to add extra to the gift card. The dinner and wine was wonderful. We were not expecting the prices we paid. We are on SS and can not afford outings like this- have to save to do something special. We loved sitting out under the canopy enjoying the... More

My husband took me here for my birthday Aug 2015 and we were very impressed. As a result I planned on hosting my father's 60th birthday party here in Lexington in July 2016 and wanted to do something special for my extended family and my father. It pains me to write this review and relive the frustration and embarrassment I... More

I visited the Jean Farris Winery for the first time. The setting and the drive to the restaurant is very nice. The service was excellent. The food was pretty good. I was disappointed that the Winery had lost all of their grapes, which was not their fault, however, I was looking forward to a sampling of their local wine. Three... More

This was winery #2 of the day. The atmosphere was very nice. Bar stools were not comfortable at all though. The bartender engaged in a good level of conversation with us, although when giving our change rounded in his favor. The tastings were done in flights of four wines and were pre-selected (Whites, Reds, Sweets). At first we did not... More

We go here about twice a month in the summer. We love their cheese and outdoor area as well as their happy hour. Their menu for dinner is rather small but we usually just do soup and salad. Around he holiday season they did a 20% off sale on gift cards which was handy! I've never had bad service here.... More

We visited later one evening after driving several hours to another location. They do their tastings more like a restaurant (which they are) than the typical winery. My wife had a flight of 4 wines that she liked and received a glass to go with it. We bought a bottle of blush that she liked and had an evening meal... 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. It's home is Kentucky.
