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.


Re-opening for regular hours February 5. Open by appointment until then.


Reservations are unavailable as we are not doing in-person tastings at the moment.


Our parking lot entrance is on Empire Avenue. We are housed in Lake Michigan College’s campus in the Welch Center for Wine & Viticulture.
