Touring Michigan Wine

Wineries and the Area

12 Corners

12 Corners Vineyards was started by a small group of friends who grew up in Michigan and recognized the uniqueness of a site just four miles off Michigan's famed "Gold Coast." The neighborhood of Twelve Corners, Michigan is our namesake. We have a 115-acre estate planted with both vinifera and hybrid grapes. Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay and Traminette are but a sampling of the varieties we offer as wines for your pallet's pleasure.

Fenn Valley

Fenn Valley is a small family owned vineyard and winery that was born out of a fascination with the art of growing premium wine grapes and making fine wines.

Our vineyards are planted to traditional European wine varieties that were carefully selected for their ability to thrive in our cool northern climate. Additional travel fees apply.
