Grand Rapids is the perfect home base for a tour of the area's best wineries. Start right here in the city for a taste of our unique fruit wines. Then it's just a short drive north or south to vineyards that benefit from the sandy soils and temperate climate of Lake Michigan. You can tour the scenic shores and countryside of West Michigan, visit charming small towns, do some sampling, pick up a few bottles - and still be back in Grand Rapids for dinner!
Tour West Michigan, one winery at a time!
