Experience The Award-Winning Wines and Wineries

All in Southwest Michigan and Easy to Explore.

Whether for the week, weekend, or just a day, the Wine Trail is a getaway like no other.

Your time with us may only last a day or two,

but the memories are made to last a lifetime.

SUMMER VIRTUAL TASTINGS

June 25, 2020 – While many of you are visiting the wineries along the Trail, some of you may not have had the chance to visit or you may not be ready to get out. We are adding to the wine tasting experience like that offered in May during Michigan Wine Month. We listened to your questions and feedback and will embark on the next adventure.   What’s in the bottle?  We are going to talk about the grapes in those wine bottles you enjoy so much and discuss the meanings of the tasting notes.  The winemakers are true artisans, using both science and art, and the results are great wines.   So, join us each Wednesday in July and early August as we bring you up close, yet virtual, with the winemakers.    Mark your calendars for 4pm and be sure to purchase the wine being discussed so you can taste along with us.     OK?   Details are on our FB page

Latest News Regarding The Wineries Opening

June 18 2020 –  The wineries were allowed to reopen on June 15.  Please review each wineries website and FB pages for current plans and updates.  Masks are required.

We are pleased to begin to serve you in person again, with the current policies mandated by the State of Michigan and the CDC. We look forward to seeing you.  Become familiar with the policies that are required for your safety.  When and where masks are required,  socially distancing of 6ft, number of people allowed inside the winery and outside, how the wine will be served (flights, modified tastings, glass, bottle, case).  Please check the winery website for specific policy of each winery.

Please be kind and patient as we work together to make your winery experience as pleasant as possible for everyone.   While we understand that adjusting to the issue of wearing masks may not be easy for some, remember we all adjusted to no smoking, no shirt, no shoes, no service policies.   It will take some time, so don’t forget your masks.   Thank you.
