Our friend recommended this winery to us. Upon first impression, the drive up and the view from the tasting room is stunning. We got in around 11:30 on a Sunday so it was not very crowded. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the wine and...More

Another winery perched on top of a hill that offers a fantastic view from the tasting room. The server was well informed, and the wines were average

There is a great view from the tasting room. The staff was friendly and informative. Good tasting wine. Similar to other Michigan wines. Get tasting free is you buy a couple bottles. Nice visit, would return.

Arrived at 4:30 pm on Saturday and told that there were three groups ahead of us, so the wait would be about 10 minutes. The first group, a Bachelorette party, got to the tasting area within a few minutes. 20 minutes later the next couple...More

2Lad is a bit off the main road, but it is worth your visit. The wines are somewhat expensive ($15-35) with fewer selections than some other places, we thought. And like someone else said here, if you spent $25 or more, the wine sample is...More
