For nearly a century, West Michigan has been the home to some of the most productive and picturesque fruit farms in the Midwest. Lake Michigan's "lake effect" has sheltered the fruit of our region from the harshness of winter -- blanketing the fruit vines with snow and providing slightly warmer temperatures.

Domaine Berrien Cellars is situated on an 80 acre farm located in Berrien County, Michigan, in the heart of scenic Lake Michigan Shore Wine Country. Our vineyard development began in 1992 when Thomas & Abigail Fricke purchased the property, which was all planted in tart cherry trees at the time.

McIntosh Orchards and Wine Cellar is a place where the family can come and find fun for all ages. Kids can enjoy fresh pressed cider, eat homemade cider donuts and play in the orchards.

Baroda Founders Wine Cellar is in the heart of southwest Michigan, one of the best grape growing regions of the world. With Lake Michigan to the west, the climate is ideal for growing bountiful harvests of fruit.

If you haven't tried wine made without the use of chemicals you haven't tried wine with true fruit taste and aroma. Imagine the taste and aroma of the fresh fruit, then you are close to what our wines smell and taste like.

Our family has grown and vinified grapes for over 25 years. Our passion is evolving our family's legacy with a reverance to tradition, the desire to explore new ideas, and the "Free Run" to find our own style of winemaking.
