South Haven and Van Buren County lie in the heart of Southwest Michigan's wine country, where almost half of the state's wine grapes are grown. For more than a century, the region's wineries have produced clean, crisp, balanced wines, attracting the attention of wine lovers, whether visiting during the first blush of spring, summer's glory, the fall harvest or even in the deep of winter.
Step into the world of our winemakers, who blend award-winning wines, champagnes and sparkling juices. Visit their wine cellars and learn about the wine making process. Walk through the vineyards to see the carefully nurtured grapes basking in the sun, waiting to be plucked from the vine.
Even pets can join in the fun at this fest that includes a dog jumping competition, an old-fashioned grape stomping contest, a kids' carnival and a bicycle trip through the vineyards. Tour wineries or sample local vintages at tasting tents throughout the area. Most events are free, although there is a $5 charge for admission to tasting tents.
