A Spottsville, Kentucky-based winery has been open and producing wine from “vine to bottle” for nearly 9 years, and has been serving Owensboro residents weekly at the regional Farmers’ Market for the past 5 years.

Boucherie Winery sells wine of all varieties as well as products such as wine slushies and even wine soap.

“Everything is grown on the estate and we try to buy locally,” said co-owner Martha Boucherie. “Blackberries and blueberries come from Daviess County.”

Even though the Owensboro market is about a 30 minute drive from the Boucherie farm, she is very intentional with her presence every week for several reasons.

“I appreciate the people there. It’s a good diverse crowd and I have my own regulars who hunt me down at the market once it starts up again,” Boucherie said. “We are used to coming here, and our regular customers know it.”

Outside of the Owensboro Farmers Market, the winery also sells its wares at the Henderson Farmers Market, flea markets, several wine festivals across the state and, of course, their storefront, where they hold wine tastings every working day to help customers. “finding the perfect bottle.”

“We’re friendly when people come in and we like people to sit down and talk,” Boucherie said. “We don’t mind telling customers how we’re doing it. We don’t divulge any secrets or anything, but we love talking to customers.
