Or ‘locals’ to SW Michigan or NW Indiana can stop into many Lake Michigan Shore Wineries, ANY Martin’s Grocery Store (SW Michigan & NW Indiana) or Harding’s Friendly Market in Bridgman to purchase in person with no service fees.

This signature event is staying true to its original mission of bringing all the wineries of the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail together in one location for guests to sample wines by taste or by the glass-and paired with the amazing vista of the Lake Michigan Shore. The festival features all of the wonderful locally-grown-and-produced varietals from The Lake Michigan Shore AVA including 12 Corners, Baroda Founders, Cody Kresta, Cogdal, Contessa, Domaine Berrien, Fenn Valley, Gravity, Hickory Creek, Karma Vista, Lawton Ridge, Lake Michigan Vintners, Lazy Ballerina, Lemon Creek, St. Julian, Vineyard 2121, Warner and White Pine.

The festival will continue to feature fantastic regional live music programming, a big top tent that houses the awesome wineries, access to the beach and beautiful Lake Michigan, an enviable sunset and a whole lot of world-class wines! Area food trucks and other local restaurants will be there to pair with the amazing varietals! All below the backdrop of the towering sands of beautiful Warren Dunes.
