Sandhill Crane Vineyards is a small family-owned winery and cafe located in eastern Jackson county. Our award-winning wines are made with only local grapes and other fruits. The new cafe features soups, salads, sandwiches, and desserts made with locally sourced ingredients. For groups of 8 or more we ask that you give us a courtesy call at least 24 hours in advance and plan on arriving before 4:30 pm on the day of your visit. That will allow us to make sure that we have adequate tasting room staff on hand and reserve one or more tables for your group. Thanks!

Lots of great wines

Great staff who share their knowledge of the wines. We also had lunch from the café which was very good. One of our favorite places to wine taste in that area.

If you enjoy road trips and great country views this is the place for you. I love that they have an outdoor area to sit at and enjoy you choice of wine. They offer a selection of small plates, the white fish is amazing. I suggest trying their Night of the living dead its special to them.

We really enjoyed the visit to Sandhill Crane Vineyards. It is off the beaten path, so to speak, but well worth the time and effort. Lunch is basically a variety of sandwiches, wraps and salads. Also, the wine tasting of course is the focus of the other part of the business. Vineyards are close by if you are interested in... More

Sandhill Crane is tucked away from the road. Follow the signage and don't be surprised if you turn in the driveway of neighboring house! The building sits back off the road. The facility has a nice bar for tasting and deli. The deck is great in the summer time. The wine list is extensive. They have a few nice wines... More

We were traveling through the area and since we'd never stopped at a southeast Michigan winery, we chose to stop at one close to 94, and Sandhill Crane looked like a good choice to us. Thankfully we were not disappointed! We were hungry so we ordered the smoked trout starter from the cafe menu to go along with our tasting.... More

The setting is very nice with a spacious deck overlooking the growing vines and orchard, and a nice indoor area that is light and airy with a bar and stage.
