What you'll do
You will meet me at my winery located on 38 acres of rolling hills, farmland, and vineyards. I will give you a tour of the winery operation, including a behind-the-scenes look at winemaking and grape processing. I will guide you through a wine tasting, including a curated list of at least 5 wines produced on the winery premises from previous harvests. Guests will then select one bottle of wine to take with them and will have the opportunity to purchase other wines, including by the glass to enjoy at the winery, or by the bottle to take with them.
I am a professional winemaker and vineyard owner. I have a Level 3 Award (with distinction) from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust and Napa Valley Wine Academy. I am an active student in the Lake Michigan College Enology and Viticulture Program. My wines have placed for medals at the Michigan Wine Competition and I was voted a finalist for "Michigan's Favorite Winemaker" by Michigan By The Bottle. I have been featured by WineTraveler, Michigan Uncorked, New Buffalo Explored, and Grand Rapids Magazine.
Tasting flight of locally produced wine and a bottle each guest will take home at the end of the tasting experience.

Where you'll be
Guests will be hosted in the winery's cellar and barrel room. The barrel room is an operational production area and storage facility. It can be somewhat chilly in the winter, early spring and fall, so we recommend guests wear jackets during these times of the year. Weather permitting, we may host the tasting outside on our patio. If the barrel room is not available, the tasting may be hosted in our winery lounge.
