Our Expertise

ACHRIMÈRE WINES vineyard on Old Mission Peninsula image



Located just south of the 45th parallel on the sandy loam soils of Old Mission Peninsula.  Because of its special disposition in Northern Michigan, surrounded on all sides by Lake Michigan, Old Mission Peninsula AVA benefits from an extended growing season. The synergy between land and water, provides a unique micro climate of warmer, moderating temperatures, which protects wine grapes from frost and cold situations that can freeze our buds off.

The Wines

After searching for the perfect vineyard location and years of prepping and planning, in 2015, we planted our five acre vineyard with Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. We waited three years to harvest our fruit and sold it in 2017.  In 2018 we kept some for ourselves and to share with you. In 2023, we grew to seven acres. We hope you enjoy!

I might be ACHRIMÈRE'S biggest fan. I love every wine she makes, but my favorite is her Sparkling Blanc de Blancs.  It's the perfect dry to sweet ratio, and better than any sparkling in Michigan, and beyond.

These two helped plant their respective blocks of pinot gris and chardonnay, and ACHRIMÈRE is eternally thankful for them....the bestest friends!
