Vintners can help you turn passion into a career in just one year.

Through a partnership with Lake Michigan College, Lake Michigan Vintners is home to the Midwest’s first commercial teaching winery. LMC offers an accredited A.A.S. degree in Wine and Viticulture Technology, and we provide students with practical, hands-on experience in every aspect of winemaking and vineyard management.

Our world-class wines and ciders are from Southwest Michigan.

We’re rooted in the soil and sun of the Lake Michigan Shore AVA. We buy from local growers, press fruit in-house, and create wines that reflect the best of our region.

Reservations and private events welcome.

We can accommodate groups of up to 8. We strongly encourage groups to make reservations during public tasting hours so that we provide you the best service possible.

We also rent our tasting room for family gatherings, corporate get-togethers, and other special events.
