In 1997 we sold our home in suburban Ferndale, MI and put everything we had into the purchase of our property and the development of the vineyard, all in the pursuit of the American dream. The property was all wooded, so we immediately began clearing trees and planting vines. We cleared and planted roughly seven acres per year in 1997, 1998 and 1999 - and have filled in other areas of the property for 24 acres of grapes. We opened our wine tasting room on March 1, 2002.

Kip, a wood worker for 25 years, closed his woodshop to follow his passion and become a first generation farmer and winemaker. His refined palate and quest for excellence have served him well in the production of our wines. Dennise, a former flight attendant, oversees the wine tasting room and is the driving force behind the distribution of our wines to many fine retail stores throughout the metro Detroit, Ann Arbor and Lansing areas. We hope you enjoy our wines as much as we enjoy presenting them to you.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
