Great view and very nice tasting room. Had very good service from Dave and did not get poor treatment as read in other reviews. Wines tastings were free and you get 6 of them. Also a larger pour than other wineries. Big plus if you really want to get a idea of what the wine tastes like. Wines are okay. Another winery you need to go to while on M37.

We had a wonderful visit here...the winery is perched atop a hill with stunning views of Lake Michigan and the area, so it starts off wonderfully. It continues as the building and facility (tasting room) is beautiful, the wines are, overall, very good, and reasonably priced. The staff are nice, relaxed, and we highly recommend!

The tasting room was nice and good. The tasting was free for 6 and pretty good. I liked the Chardonnay and the cherry port with chocolate. The gift shop was grea... Lots of wine accessories and local food. Good place to stop.

This place is just stunning beyond words. The tasting table is huge so there's always space for me. The attached patio area is stunning. There are panoramic views of the vineyard, the luscious landscape, and the water. It's just a glorious place. If I had known about it at the time, I would have gotten married there without a second thought. I preferred their whites to their reds and the uncorked chardonnay had me back there twice on the same vacation. I can't wait to go back again (and that's a long way from Atlanta, Georgia!!). A must see/taste.

Great winery, pleasant staff, no pressure tasting room. The wines are typical of the Peninsula and reasonably priced...the setting is very laid back, and the surroundings are appealing for taking your time, checking out several wines and enjoying!
