You get two comp pours then can try a flight if you'd like. For $9 we got two wines and and some... More

This is one of my favorites in the area, excellent sparkling wine, friendly staff, tasty snacks, nice view. I brought back a case of wine and joined their wine club.

Absolutely worth a visit and a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon in Northern MI- try a flight with some of their delicious spreads and crackers (cherry jalapeño was our fave). Their wine is great - we not only bought some that day but decided to join their wine club. Highly recommend the rose.

Hitting the area wineries in off season is still fun. Staff very friendly & you get lots of attention. In addition to a great tasting, make sure you get the smoked whitefish pate.

Truly an entertaining tasting experience. The sparkling wines, which are all of their wines, were quite nice. (Not a big sparkling fan.) In a competitive area such as wine tasting, the experience sells return trips, as well as the wine. This customer experience was a great one. You felt like you were truly welcomed and valued. The knowledge of the... More

We went to the tasting room on a Friday afternoon- it was bustling. The people are super friendly and their setup manages the flow of people really well allowing for people to taste & interact at several stations. My wife and I really enjoyed several of the wines, but admittedly we avoid any sweet or fruit wines so can't speak... More

We hadn't been here for 30 years. Interesting, entertaining, and helpful staff. Loved that they only produce sparkling wines. Delicious choices. The wines made up for lack of ambiance.

Super fun place. You get two complimentary samples of the sparkling wines. Fizz was my favorite. Everyone here was cheerful and friendly. Food is offered her, to sample with your sparkling wines.
