Why Michigan grapes?

Terroir is a French word describing a region's unique environmental factors and the effect they have on wine characteristics. In Michigan these factors include our sandy loam soils, the sheltering effect of Lake Michigan along , the combination of hot days and cool nights and more. Michigan is gaining notoriety for award winning vinifera wines and is now the third largest producer of wine in America.

Why is a deposit required?

Our grape are produced at a premium site and are in high demand and are sold immediately to local wineries or pressed and sold as juice. Any grapes not pressed or sold will begin to spoil and cannot be resold so a non-refundable deposit is required.

How many grapes do I need?

It takes approximately 100 lbs of grapes to produce 5 gallons of wine. If you do not have pressing equipment, no worries! We also sell fresh pressed juice in food grade 5 gallon containers.

Why don't you sell wine?

Winery equipment is very expensive and selling wine requires a liquor license. We do, however, run a wine club where members share in the cost and fun of making wine. Because we have low overhead, our great tasting wines are relatively inexpensive. To learn more about our wine making club, click here.
