If you're looking for a great excuse to take everyone out in our 30 passenger party bus, we have just the reason for you! Take everyone out on a tour of the area's finest wineries. For the big fans of viniculture there are a ton of wineries in Michigan, and some world-class vintners within a reasonable distance of Metro Detroit! We've done our best to include only wineries that feature the unique and fantastic wine grapes from Michigan's West Coast wine growing regions. These unique areas produce some of the most unique grapes for wine making in the world. The reason for this is in the dirt. The glacial areas that were laid out millennia ago left the sandy, well draining soil of Michigan's west-coast that is ideal for the growing of wine grapes.
For the remainder of this page, we're going to introduce to you, some of our personal favorites that are all within a "stone's throw" of the Metro Detroit area. This, of course, is not a slight on any of the wineries that we haven't listed here. In the areas surrounding Detroit, there are many upper echelon wineries opening up, for instance, in the Jackson area there has been an insurgence of superb wineries pop up. You'll also find great options in Albion, Adrian, Charlotte, Chelsea, Dexter, Fenton, Ferndale, Macomb, Northville, Rochester, Saline, Shelby, and last but not least, Tecumseh.
