They say behind every winery, lives a great story. The Jean Farris “great” story began in August of 1997 on a University of Kentucky sponsored bus tour of Missouri wine country. Jean had just completed his B.S. Degree in Food Science from the University of Kentucky and planted her family’s farm in Eastern Kentucky with several hundred grapevines. At this point the “wine seed” was firmly planted in her soul; and, after learning of a week-long wine tasting trip to Missouri, she quickly packed her bags. Boarding the bus in Bowling Green one early August 4th morning, Jean found a seat in the middle of the bus so she could continue her “light” reading of a Enology text she’d brought for company. While reading, she looked-up to notice a dark haired young man choose, and then sit in, the seat right behind her.

    Wine review by Brianne Dornbush

  • Jean Farris Winery Red Blend Tempest 2007


    A blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Garnet in color with aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, sage and cedar. Bold blackberry fruit with cassis, white pepper and vanilla finishing with moderate tannins, nice acidity and just a hint of heat. Shows that world class wine can be made in the land of Bourbon.
