We like to bike south from Suttons Bay and stop at this wonderful setting. If it's a nice day their tasting area in back of the building is awesome, complete with an outdoor fireplace. Great service, although it was not crowded when we were there....More

We loved this winery - one of our favorites! The staff was awesome and the wine was delicious. Loved the cherry cider and late harvest Riesling. The patio is gorgeous and has a fireplace and tables overlooking the vineyards.

Love the building and setting. You can do the tasting inside or outside on the patio. They can get crowded on the high weekends

I was able to do my wine tasting at an attractive bar outside on a beautiful day. My first taste was free and I paid $5 to taste five more wines. Good wines so I bought several bottles.
