Winery
Two guys who used to do other things but decided creating award winning wines with new twists was a hell of a lot more fun.

Located between Makers Mark Distillery and Limestone Branch Distillery off of Route 49 in Marion County. We offer the most spectacular views whilst you enjoy our winning Dry, Sweet, or canned wines. Along with Wine Slushies and our newest product...Kentucky Kangria with some old faces being re-introduced.

Also, new apparel designs so you can wear our weirdness proudly.

Jesters is the best restaurant in the county in my opinion. They use local ingredients and the food is handcrafted. This is not something that you can experience anywhere else in a 30 mile radius. The prices are very reasonable. The wine cans are delicious. I love the owners sarcasm, and their menu even states that they are "The best at being humble." This place is a hidden gem. I highly recommend that you stop here if you are ever in the area. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

went in mid October for lunch /very quite area with patio and indoor seating /they had no problem that we had our dog outside /service was amazing/we tried the sampler flight of 7 wines pork tacos pimento burger and chicken wrap /the wrap was huge and had to take half home tacos were delicious with a kick of chipotle ranch & burger was good but hubby stated that coleslaw on it would be a good compliment/ the broccoli salad is not broccoli heads but more of a slaw type salad (as a heads up)/ potato salad had a great amount of cheddar (yum) and a ting of a smokey flavor but really good/ staff is super friendly and will accommodate/ will return again if ever back in the area!

Jester's winery is worth checking out. The staff members are great the wine tastings are great and the cheese platters are phenomenal. If you haven't done a wine tasting at Jesters you're missing out.

Awesome winery and cafe! We stopped for lunch, but we still ending up leaving with wine. Most of the wines are canned and the bourbon barrel bubbly is really refreshing, which was perfect for a summer afternoon. My fiance raved about the burger and I really liked the pulled chicken sandwich. Whether you are looking for lunch while visiting local distilleries or need a wine break in bourbon country, I would recommend stopping here!

Nice place to eat except the location is a little out of the way which why I think they had very few patrons. When we went, there were only 2 other people there and then for a while we were the only ones there. This was between 3 and 4:30.

We celebrated birthdays at Jesters and received the best service and the wine and food were delicious! The fun drink selections, variety of food menu options, beautiful views, fun atmosphere and various outdoor seating arrangements made it the perfect place for a night out. I am looking forward to our next visit and our entire party had a wonderful evening thanks to the friendly and knowledgeable staff who assisted in our selections and perfectly accommodated a large party. We purchased several bottles of wine to take home! Wonderful local gem!

We had a family dinner for my sister’s birthday. We had a large group and every need was accommodated- even a blanket for one of the kids who was chilly. The food was delicious, and atmosphere was perfect. We sat on the deck and the view was beautiful.

Every time we’ve been has been nicer than the last.
