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.

Contessa

Nestled in the fertile wine growing hills of Coloma Michigan, Contessa Wine Cellars is the realization of a dream. Inside, you will enjoy our vast selection of fine wines, served in an elegant tasting room reminiscent of an Italian villa. Outside, you will be treated to spectacular orchard vistas from our European-style terrace overlooking the rich, green Coloma Valley.

Domaine Berrien Cellars

Domaine Berrien Cellars, established in 2001, is committed to hand-crafting high quality estate bottled wines from the grapes grown in our vineyards. We believe that great wines are made in the vineyard and shepherded to maturity in the cellar. While our operation may be new to the public, we have been making wines for family and friends for over 32 years. Some restrictions apply.

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. The vineyard site, located along the shores of Lake Michigan, was chosen because the unique great lakes climate and deep sandy soils would be an ideal setting for growing grapes and creating wines having a stature and character unparalleled anywhere else. 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.

Free Run Cellars

Our family has grown and vinified grapes for over 25 years. Our passion is evolving our family's legacy with a reverance to tradition, the desire to explore new ideas, and the "Free Run" to find our own own style of winemaking.

Gravity

One of the area's newest winery; beautiful views, friendly service, and great wine.  We specialize in "wine flights"... custom prepared trays of wine paired with delicious cheese and chocolate! We have tons of seating inside and outside overlooking the vineyard and lake.  Come and see why everyone is effected by Gravity!

Hickory Creek

Hickory Creek Winery is the smallest production winery in the area, specializing in "Old World" European style wines made from local Lake Michigan Shore AVA fruit. Our charming red barn tasting room features a hand-hewn hickory wood bar with a view of the production area.   At any given time, we offer over 20 varieties of wines from which to choose for tasting...from dry to semi-sweet.  Our signature wines include our Zero Oak Chardonnay, French Oak aged Chardonnay, and Bordeaux style blend called Melange.

 

Hickory Creek is known for hand crafted quality wines that are served at many of the finest restaurants in SW Michigan and Chicago, including Chicago's 2012 NATO Summit luncheon hosted by the First Lady at Terzo Piano.  Our Winemaker and Owner, Eric Wagner, is also a practicing veterinarian on Chicago's North Shore. He has just created a fun spirited line of wines called "Laughing Labs" in honor of his 13 year old rescue labrador Kia.  Proceeds from sales of Laughing Labs benefit Midwest Labrador Retriever Rescue (MLRR).  

 

We look forward to having you!


Karma Vista

Welcome to Karma Vista Vineyards and winery, one of Michigan's newest wineries from one of the state's oldest farm families. We are a few miles inland from Lake Michigan on a beautiful hillside vineyard above the small town of Coloma. Join us at our tasting room as we watch traffic on the highway far below us and try to decide why everyone else is in such a big hurry. Wine with a point of view.

Lemon Creek Winery

With the rolling clay loam hills and the moderating effect of Lake Michigan, Lemon Creek Fruit Farm has grown some of the best grapes in Michigan. The winery continues to distinguish themselves with their most recent success, a Cabernet Sauvignon Ice Wine, to compliment their diversified wine selection. The winemaking tradition continues with the help of the newest generation.

Round Bar

The Round Barn Winery, Distillery, and Micro-Brewery is a very exciting place to spend your time. As our name indicates we not only produce fine Lake Michigan Shore wines, we also have a lineup of distilled spirits and interesting brews on tap. With wine making classes, festivals, and seasonal weekend live music; there is always something going on to keep you entertained!

Tabor Hill

Our motto: “Drink Wine, Laugh Often, Live Long!” pretty much sums up what we do here. Our goal is to produce award winning wines that compete at the national level. That is exactly what we have been doing ever since the early 1970’s. Come for a visit and take a guided cellar tour to learn all about the art of making wine, enjoy some of our delectable Norman Love chocolates, maybe even stay for dinner in our beautiful dining room overlooking the vineyards, oh and don’t forget the wine!
