Wines

Our wines run from bone dry reds & whites to semi-sweet and sweet.  Come in for a tasting and see the new standard in Michigan wines!

Here are our current wines:

Marquette_newlabel

 Jacques (Pere) Marquette was a 17th century missionary and explorer who founded Michigan’s first settlement on the Great Lakes. Explore our Marquette from northern hybrid grapes related to the Pinot Noir. A complex, yet balanced wine with desirable notes of fruit flavors, black pepper, French oak and spice on both nose and palate. Enjoy this robust dry red wine with beef, sharp cheeses, spicy dishes and dark chocolate.

Just peachy_new

 Our Sangria is named for the color of the sky at sunset over our Vineyard. Made from peach wine with natural flavors of lime, mango and pineapple. Enjoy this fiesta of flavors in a glass of ‘Just Peachy Sangria’ with family and friends.

Blackeberry Wine_new

Crooked Vine Blackberry is a light and refreshing way to enjoy wine.

It has just the right touch of sweetness for picnics, casual dining and quiet evenings Up North.

Pairs well with wild game or a simple chicken salad sandwich. Also goes well with pie, cobblers, or a dark chocolate torte.

Tip of the Mitt_new

From the late 1800’s up to now people have been drawn to this area known as the ‘Tip of the Mitt’. The historical map shows the inland water route from Cheboygan on Lake Huron through Mullett and Burt Lakes, west to the Crooked River connecting Crooked Lake and Pickerel Lake.

Clean air, pure waters, along with bountiful fish and game attracted early resorters. Bay View, Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Indian River and Alanson all sprang up overnight.

The fresh clean taste of this light bodied wine is from a blend of Chancellor Noir and other locally grown grapes. Pairs well with grilled vegetables and meats, pizza or salty snacks.

Frontenac Gris

 The graceful White Birch tree can be found growing along the waters and in the woods of Northern Michigan. It is easily identified by pure white bark that peels off in thin paper-like layers.

Frontenac Gris is the primary Michigan grown grape in this wine and has hints of peach and apricot, along with layers of citrus and tropical fruit flavors.

A crisp semi-dry wine made for sipping while recalling the blue skies and lakes of UpNorth. Our Frontenac Gris wine pairs well with chicken/pork, salty snacks or chilled by itself.

Cottage White label

From the grand front porches of Bay View and Harbor Springs to your front porch or deck, enjoy our semi-sweet wine, Cottage White.

A refreshing summer wine, crisp and clean. Made from a blend of wine grapes, all grown in Michigan, it has citrus flavors of lemon and grapefruit along with tones of apple and pear.

It is a nicely balanced wine that complements spicy dishes, BBQ, sharp cheeses and apple pie.

Two Mom's Blush Crooked Vine

Nothing is more breathtaking than sharing a sunset in Northern Michigan.

This label is a silhouette of our mothers on Pickerel Lake. They were friends since childhood and we named our two vineyards after them.

We invite you to share this fine ros’e wine with your best friend at your favorite sunset spot. Pairs well with salads, crudites, spicy dishes or a simple piece of Mackinac Island fudge.

Crooked Vine Vineyard Barrel Back Red

You hear it coming! The sound is different from all other boats–the look is unmistakable.

From the Les Cheneaux Islands in the Upper Penisula to Walloon Lake and Wequetonsing Harbor Springs, these wooden works of art still cruise the clear, clean waters of Michigan.

Our Barrell Back Red is made from 100% Noiret grapes, a new complex hybrid, grown here in Michigan. Similar to Petite Syrah, it has the spiciness of black pepper with overtones of plums, raspberries, and choke cherries.

French oak was used in the aging process to soften the tannins, resulting in a semi-dry, medium bodied wine.

Barrel Back Red pairs well with grilled and smoked meats, a wedge of cheese or enjoyed just by itself.

Crooked Vine Vineyard Pet-O-Se-Ga Blanc

Who can forget the first time they found a Petoskey stone in the clear, clean waters of Lake Michigan?

The name Petoskey likely came from Ottawa Indian legend, in the late 18th century. Along with the City of Petoskey, the stone was named for Chief Bedosagay (Pet-O-Se-Ga).

Enjoy the fresh, crisp taste of our wine, made from Michigan Seyval Blanc grapes.

Pet-O-Se-Ga Blanc, with its delicate fruit and light oak flavors, pairs well with poultry, lighter seafood entrees and tangy cheeses.
