Ways to Wine
Whether you like to rosé all day or find that any time is fine for sparkling wine, we have a multitude of ways to enjoy a glass or two.
Taste the distinct flavors that can only come from Michigan’s Fruit Belt and the Fennville and Lake Michigan Shore AVAs (American Viticultural Areas). With four small-batch wineries that call our area home, you can make an entire day of sampling different red, white, sparkling, and fruit wines unique to our region. Our wineries include Michigan Wine Co., Crane’s Winery, Fenn Valley Vineyards and Winery, and Modales Wines. Visit each one for a different experience and selection of wine. No takers for a designated driver? No problem. Charter a private wine-tasting tour through Coastal Tours and leave the driving to them.
Beyond our local wineries, wine lovers will also enjoy Saugatuck’s J. Petter Wine Gallery, a fine art gallery, artisan wine shop, and wine bar rolled into one unforgettable experience. Featuring over 20 wines by the glass as well as over 400 bottles of wine in their shop, their team of wine experts is eager to help find your new favorite wine. World-class wines can also be savored at Borrowed Time, a delightful wine bar and small plates restaurant in Douglas. Wine offerings are updated frequently, as is their creative, seasonal menu.
And finally, for a wine tasting that includes views of Lake Michigan and the Saugatuck Harbor, take a Wine on the Water themed cruise on the Star of Saugatuck paddlewheel boat where you can sit back and savor wine while an expert guides you through the tastings.
