Like many of us, our histories begin with our dreams fueling a way of life. Originally from the Detroit area, Walter and Eileen Brys visited the Napa Valley in the 1970's as part of a business trip when Walter worked for Blue Cross of Michigan shortly after they were married.

Experience dry wine with 100% Michigan grapes from classic European varietals such as Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Enjoy wine carefully crafted in the French style to be complex, balanced and served with food. Try our award-winning wines to see why we are “Michigan Red Wine Specialists.”

Think of it as your very own, perfectly charming winery and Old World inn stocked with fine wine and staffed with attentive proprietors whose sole purpose is to provide a space or experience to meet your every need.

Our interest in wine came quite naturally, just like it does for most people, a cool, bright Riesling on a warm afternoon, a mammoth California Zinfandel with a pile of BBQ Ribs, and pretty much everything in-between.

U-pick, we-pick dark & lite sweet cherries & tart cherries in July. Fall apple season - 3rd weekend in Sep through October hrs-10 am to 5pm. 15 varieties of apples, honeycrisp, gala, jonagold. Also pears, prunes, pumpkins, squash, gourds. Weekday field trips by appointment.

Villa Mari founder Marty Lagina made the (some would say) crazy choice to grow grapes that shouldn't grow in Michigan, with the belief that he could produce world class wines that otherwise couldn't be made here. So, true to his Italian heritage, he planted exotic varieties like Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and others.

Getting its French title from proprietor Lucie Matthies' middle name and paying homage to the French immigrants who settled in the area, Chateau Fontaine was a deserted potato farm and cow pasture when Dan Matthies discovered the property in the 1970's with its favorable south-facing slopes for growing grapes.

WaterFire is family-owned and run by Chantal and Mike, who live on the vineyard with their son. As an environmental scientist and wine lover, grape growing resonated with Chantal as a way to connect herself and others with the land.
