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

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

Our world-class wines & 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 & private events welcome.

We also rent our outdoor patio for family gatherings, corporate get-togethers, and other special events. Because of covid-19, there may be restrictions on reserving our indoor tasting room.
