Over 50 varieties can be found in the vineyards, including both ‘Old World’ grapes such as Cabernets, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling, and ‘New World’ hybrids like Cayuga White and Chardonel. As the leading state in tart cherry production, many wineries also produce cherry wine.

Between the stunning vineyards, brilliant hyper-local restaurants, and breathtaking views, the Great Lake State is the ideal escape to sip, eat, and relax.
