Meet John

John Bowen has been a winemaker since 2009 when he and his wife Debbie took a wine making class won at silent auction for a school fund raiser. A year later, John purchased Touriga wine grapes from the former Blackstock Vineyards (now Kaya Vineyard & Winery) in Dahlonega. The Touriga wine was excellent and John has continued to source wine grapes from top vineyards from throughout the country. His wines have won gold, silver and bronze medals—a total of 12 medals in all--from the WineMaker Magazine and Indy International Wine Competitions. John has successfully completed a Viticulture and Enology wine course from UC Davis Extension and has attended local wine making classes sponsored by UGA Viticulture Extension. WineMaker Magazine published an article on the construction of the Bowen wine cellar entitled, 'Metamorphosis of a Monarch".


John retired from the Atlanta office of Cantor Fitzgerald in September 2018. A CPA and author, John has written books on investment management and he is currently attending Kennesaw State University to get his dual MBA/MSIS degree, expected in July 2020.

Our Story

image3

Painted Horse, Milton's founding winery, is a family owned winery and vineyard on the private estate of Pamelot in the bucolic horse country of Milton, Georgia. The Farm at Pamelot is set on a twenty acre horse farm at the corner of Bethany Way and Hopewell Road.

The Farm at Pamelot has been in operation for 25 years teaching riding lessons, boarding, summer camp and birthday parties. We are well-known for painting our horses. If you come to an event at Pamelot, you're probably going to paint a horse! One year we dyed all our white horses pink with Kool Aid for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Hence, the name Painted Horse!

While awaiting our own wines, we are featuring wines from other Georgia wineries in our tasting room, many of them award-winning wines!

A few we are featuring are from Kaya and Engelheim in North Georgia including Chardonnays, Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots, Pinot Grigios, Rosés and more.
