12 Corners Vineyards
12 Corners Vineyards was started by a small group of friends who grew up in Michigan and recognized the uniqueness of a site just four miles off Michigan's famed "Gold Coast". The neighborhood of Twelve Corners, Michigan is our namesake. We have a 115-acre estate planted with both vinifera and hybrid grapes. Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Chardonnay and Traminette are but a sampling of the varieties we offer as wines for your palate's pleasure.
Our region's climate, with Lake Michigan to the West, is ideal for growing bountiful harvests of fruit.
The area is called the Lake Michigan Shore AVA (American Viticulture Area), and it allows us and our fellow “Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail” Wineries to produce high-quality award-winning wines.
Our Wine Selection ranges from Classic Varietal (Lake Michigan Shore) to Fruit-Flavor-Enhanced (Baroda Antique Series), as well as Delectable Dessert Wines infused with delicious chocolate.
Baroda Founders Wine Cellar has a wine for every palate!
We enjoy sharing our Wines, Knowledge & Good Times ... look forward to your visit!
Dablon Vineyards & Winery
Our story began thousands of years ago – when glaciers deposited their cargo of stones, rocks, minerals, clay, sand and gravel creating a hilly moraine in Baroda, Michigan. In 2009, we began our portion of the story when we purchased 44 acres of land. We began our vineyard with 4 acres of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and have continued planting new vines each year. Once home to vineyards of concord grapes, the soils are ideal and the climate conditions are similar to Burgundy, creating a perfect growing area for our viniferous vines. Our location is atop one of the highest points in Baroda, and the moderating influence of Lake Michigan protects from frosts and promotes a long growing season.
Free Run Cellars
Free Run Cellars was designed as a haven for wine experts and novices alike. Lush vineyards beckon those drawn to nature’s allure, while an intimate setting invites guests into an atmosphere designed for indulgence. Here our winemaker Brian Carlson, culinary director Ryan Thornburg and CEO Matt Moersch have “free run” to create the food and wine pairings that pique the palate and inspire the senses.
But Free Run doesn’t just represent their veritable playground. It is also the term for the first juice to come from grapes before they are pressed. It’s the deliciousness that flows as the grape skins burst from the pressure of their own weight on top of each other. As you can imagine, free-run juice is limited and considered to be the best of the best—and that’s exactly why it’s the namesake of this unique spot in Southwest Michigan wine country.
At Free Run, we are proud to offer small-batch wines and seasonal fare you won’t find anywhere else. We are firm believers in quality over quantity, from the wines to the intimate setting in which they are served. One taste and we know you’ll become a believer too.
For starters, when you visit Gravity you will be overwhelmed by our friendly and outgoing staff, whose #1 goal is to make your time with us delightfully memorable. From casual conversations to detailed wine information, each and every member of our staff takes pride in making your visit great!
Second, you will have the opportunity to enjoy our signature Flight Pairing. This is where you have the chance to select any four small glasses of our wines which are then paired with palate appeasing samples. All of this is prepared on a flight tray for you to take to sit down and enjoy with the wonderful people you came with.
Where do we sit you ask…We have a modern 2,000 square foot tasting room that was finished in 2011. Huge windows around the entire perimeter make you feel like you are right in the vineyard! We have seating for approximately 50 people indoors plus an additional 100+ outdoors on our huge covered deck overlooking our private lake.
Journeyman Distillery produces handcrafted, organic spirits in the historic EK Warren Featherone factory located in Three Oaks, MI. Our products are certified organic, kosher and made with locally sourced grains.
Warren, a staunch prohibitionist, founded the historic building in 1883 as a buggy whip and corset factory. He revolutionized the manufacturing process of corsets with the use of the softer feather bone, over the stiffer whalebone in the late 19th century. EK Warren’s success reached worldwide attention putting Three Oaks, Michigan on the map.
We invite you to explore throughout the historic building and take a look through our gallery windows which let you view the distillation process as it happens.The original maple factory floors are still in place from the 1800s. We’re using wood from the owner’s family barn in central Indiana; wood that was once the flooring for an early 1900s schoolhouse. We have an original concrete bar made in Grand Rapids, with coordinates etched into the side—to mark this historic and unique location.
Everything about Journeyman Distillery is handcrafted. We offer artisan spirits with a focus on whiskey. While whiskey is what we originally fell in love with, we also offer a variety of quality organic spirits such as vodka, gin, and rum. We distill, bottle, label, and package each spirit here at the distillery.
