The Simpson family has been growing fruit on the Leelanau Peninsula for three generations. Before the cultivation of vineyards, the Simpson’s were a cherry farming family caring for and harvesting over 300 acres. It was Bruce’s father, John Simpson who had the vision of vineyards and a winery.
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.
