We first opened our doors in May of 2008 with only a handful of offerings. Our first red wines weren’t even bottled yet; all we had available were a few white and sparkling wines. We also expanded our vineyard in 2008, part of which included a small (1.2 acre) block of Riesling.
Over the past decade, these vines — and our winery — have grown and thrived on this hill, on this peninsula, here in northern Michigan. We’ve celebrated our great vintages as well as faced weather hardships, and have come through them with a greater appreciation for farming in northern Michigan. Like our Riesling vines, we too have found our roots in these soils.
We’ve created this wine to celebrate our first 10 years. 10 years in the earth, 10 years of open doors – and we couldn’t think of better people to share it with than you, our loyal supporters. The MMVIII is a small production Sparkling Riesling available only to our Wine Club members. Help us toast our first decade as we look forward to deeper roots and flourishing wines in the decades to come!
