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.

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!

Cute little winery! Had fun with the tasting but the highlight was the food! The pulled pork and Gouda pizza and the caprese pizza was outstanding! Beautiful area out in the country.

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.

Don’t judge this book by its cover. When I first walked in and saw a giant cardboard gorilla wearing a thong I really thought that I had messed up for Mother’s Day. But they very kindly put it away before she arrived and served us an amazing meal with incredible hospitality, my parents who are very much food snobs loved the food and the service. Unfortunately it was a little cold and rainy when we went but their outdoor seating looks like a really awesome place to be with fire pits and a decent view. We will definitely check out the super friendly place the next time we are out in bourbon country.

We celebrated parents 50th Wedding Anniversary at Jester’s Winery and Cafe. The owners were fantastic hosts; attentive, adaptive, and professional in every way. The group of 40 was seated perfectly indoors, as the skies poured. Service is impeccable, food is savory, and the liquor succulent. If searching for an indoor/outdoor wedding venue in the rolling hills of KY, look no further. Beautiful scenery with food and drink venue at your service. Thanks again Jester’s!

Good food but that was about it. One server was nice but the other was rude to us and made us feel like we needed to hurry and leave due to a party taking place. We had a reservation and didn't feel like we were wanted there.

This place is awesome! The grounds are beautiful and there’s a brand new outside seating area and nice fire pits which will be great this summer as they plan to have music. The food was to die for and the owners are so nice and very hands on. Highly recommend Jesters and we will definitely be back!

Great location and true Kentucky. Big sky, rolling knobs, farmland, food and spirits. Jesters Red and Kongs Thong were my preference to accompany the cheese tray, house pickles, bbq pork and chicken. Look forward to visiting again!

My experience was great. Drinks were great. Not a fan of the paper straws. The room was very cold. I plan to go back again. To enjoy sitting outside on the new patio area.

We were a little unsure when we pulled up but we are so glad we stayed! The food was really good, the drinks were even better. The owner was a super friendly guy and very friendly! We bought some drinks to bring back to Florida with us. Next time we are in town, we will definitely visit again!

This place is a delight. We've been a few times and are always greeted and treated like we're family. The ambience is simple but beautiful both outside and inside. The food is loving prepared with great care, and the wine is always great. Jester's has sweet wine as well as dry. The menu is smaller, but there's something for everyone, and the food always comes out hot and delicious.
