Wineries

Thousands of years ago, our land was covered by glaciers whose retreat formed what we know as the Great Lakes.  It is the rich and fertile soil left behind paired with the area’s climate that creates conditions ideal for growing grapes.  These conditions gave life to a vibrant and expanding vineyard region, known as the Grand River Valley, and is currently home to 24 wineries.

On the ridge of the Grand River, visitors will find rolling acres of manicured vineyards. On sunny days in the fall, the sweet smell of ripening grapes hangs heavy in the air and locals drive with their windows down to breathe in the delicious scent. Fresh-pressed grape juice should be on your bucket list if you’ve never tried it!

The wineries are very hands-on.  Guests are often served by owners or their family and friends.  Cellar tours are common and visitors can participate in a robust calendar of events year-round. In the winter, curl up by a crackling fire with a plate of crusty bread and local cheese while you listen to live music.  Summer events are too numerous to list: never a dull moment, rain or shine!

Most impressive about these wineries is their lack of pretense. Come as you are: dressed up or dressed down.  Drink what you like: sweet or dry.  There is a comradery and sense of pride amongst these neighbors who want their guests to sip their passion.

Travel safe; several local transportation services are available.  Think you’re not a wine drinker? Let them change your mind!  Spring Hill Winery has added hard apple cider to their menu. Debonné Vineyards houses Double-Wing Brewery, producing craft beer. Red Eagle Distillery is making vodka, rye, bourbon and whiskey. From small boutique wineries, to expansive vineyard estates, there is something for every pallet.
