News & Upcoming Events at Jean Farris

McConnell Springs Barrel Tasting 

Saturday, March 29th

On March 29, Jean Farris will be participating in the McConnell Springs Barrel Tasting. This has always been a day that Jeanie and I look forward to. We get to see old friends, make new ones, and welcome everyone into the winery to taste some of our favorite barrels.

This year we will taste Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petite Syrah.  Also, the Bistro at Jean Farris will be stepping out of our normal kitchen schedule to offer a small lunch menu to keep you fueled up for your long day of barrel tasting. Lunch will be served from 11-3 but our usual bar menu of cheese and outstanding house-made sausages and other charcuterie will be offered all day. Our staff at the bar will be able to help you if you would like to explore the wines of Jean Farris in more detail and make purchases of bottles of wine to take home.
