A winery based in Spottsville, Kentucky, has been open and producing wine from the “vine to the bottle” for nearly 9 years, and they have been serving Owensboro residents weekly at the Regional Farmers’ Market for the last 5.
Boucherie Winery sells wine of all varieties plus products such as wine slushies and even wine soap.
“It’s all estate grown, and we try to buy locally,” said co-owner Martha Boucherie. “The blackberries and the blueberries are from Daviess County.”
Even though Owensboro’s market is about a 30-minute drive from the Boucherie’s farm, she is very intentional with her presence every week for several reasons.
“I enjoy the people over there. It’s a good diverse crowd and I have my own regulars that hunt me down at the market once it starts back,” Boucherie said. “We’ve got a routine of coming here, and our repeat customers know that.”
Outside of the Owensboro farmers’ market, the winery also sells their products at the Henderson farmers’ market, flea markets, several wine festivals across the state, and of course at their storefront, where they host wine tastings on every business day to help customers “find the perfect bottle.”
“We’re friendly when people come in and we like for people to sit and talk,” Boucherie said. “We don’t mind telling customers how we do it. We don’t give away any secrets or anything, but we do enjoy talking to the customers.”
