2021 CrÉmant

–28 bottle – 10 GLass –
Club 63 – 22.4 Bottle

Crémant is a designation used for sparkling wines not made in Champagne. They can be made anywhere and often reflect blends of local significance. This style produces a fruit forward sparkling wine similar to Prosecco.


– 25 bottle – 8 glass –
Club 63 – 20 bottle

Kerner is a grape that is a cross of Riesling and Trollinger (a red varietal), but Kerner itself is a white grape. This varietal is not widely planted, but we have a few acres grown on Old Mission Peninsula. The finished wine is dry and balanced with an intriguing floral aroma.


Tale Feathers Vineyard
– 20 bottle – 8 GLass –
Club 63 – 16 bottle 

By fermenting the wine in stainless steel and avoiding long yeast contact we could keep the delicate aromas to reveal an apple-like freshness for a classic warm-weather sipper that really shows off in the glass.


Island View Vineyard

Best in Class and Gold Medal: 2022 Dan Berger International Wine Competition

–28 bottle – 10 glass –
Club 63 – 22.4 bottle

The Island View Vineyard is Michigan’s oldest Pinot Blanc planting dating back to 1995. There are 1100 plants that have been farmed for decades under the watchful eye and expert hands of Werner Kuehnis. 

2021 Murmur

18 bottle – 8 glass
Club 63 – 14.4 bottle

Named for some of our voracious vineyard foes, the starlings; Murmur is a blend of some of our favorite white grape varieties. In this case, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Traminette, and Riesling.

2021 Gewürztraminer

– 20 bottle – 8 glass –
Club 63 – 16 bottle

This is a dry Gewurztraminer fermented entirely in stainless steel. Gewurz has an excellent aging potential for at least ten years, although this wine is showing a lot of spice and aroma right now.


Island View Orchard
– 28 bottle – 10 glass –
Club 63 – 22.4 bottle

We are learning more about Auxerrois, one of the noble varieties of Alsace, with each year. This vintage is a culmination of that learned experience, resulting in a balanced dry wine with healthy lees for aging.


– 20 bottle – 8 glass
Club 63 – 16 bottle

After a multi-vintage hiatus, this LFC favorite is back! This wine is an off-dry blend of Pinot Blanc, Riesling, and Gewürztraminer that tastes great now, but also has serious aging potential.


Gold Medal: 2022 Dan Berger International Wine Competition

– 20 bottle  8 glass
Club 63 – 16 bottle

We find this well-balanced Riesling to be a melodic poem of delicate sweetness wrapped around an electric core of acid. 


Gold Medal: 2022 Dan Berger International Wine Competition

–28 bottle – 10 glass –
Club 63 – 22.4 bottle

This Riesling is grown on a 1.5 acre vineyard site with two distinct soil types that blend to make a structured wine with fat peach/apricot qualities and a stony acid finish.

red, rosé, and skin ferment

2020 Skin Ferment Pinot Gris

-28 bottle – 10 glass –

CLUB 63 – 22.4 bottle 

We fermented this Pinot Gris with the skins as we would with a red fermentation. Then we let the wine age with the skins for 4 months creating a wine with a beautiful orange hue, floral aromas, and structured tannins. 

2022 Rosé

-20 bottle – 8 glass –

CLUB 63 – 16 bottle 

We full-cluster pressed Blaufränkisch and Dornfelder, a varietal that is a “grandkid” to Blau in the grape family tree. That amount of skin contact was enough to make a fruit-forward, aromatic, and dry Rosé.

Red Drive

-25 bottle – 9 glass –

CLUB 63 – 20 bottle 

Each vintage of Red Drive we’ve made has been distinct. In 2022 we used primarily Dornfelder, a “grandkid” in the Blaufränkisch family tree. The wine is deep-hued and rounded with supple berry notes. We serve this red lightly chilled, which softens the oak and boosts the fruit.

2021 OMP Blaufränkisch

–28 bottle – 10 glass –
CLUB 63 – 22.4 bottle 

This is a blend of two of our great Blaufränkisch vineyards – The Keenan Vineyard and the Swanson Vineyard. Select barrels are chosen for this blend to help execute our goal of a fruit-focused, dry red. We age these barrels for eight months and then bottle young to capture the berry and black pepper tones.

2021 Missing Spire Riesling

– 22 bottle – 8 glass –
Club 63 – 17.6 bottle

Juicy, peachy, lightly sweet and effervescent, and bottled in traditional and distinctive blue glass. We’ve brought back this fan favorite for the first time since 2018!


Seventh Hill Farm
International Eastern Wine Competition silver
– 28 bottle – 10 glass
CLUB 63 – 22.4 bottle 

Our sweetest wine, this Late Harvest Riesling is made from exceptional fruit from one of our most renowned vineyards.


– 30 375 ml bottle  10 3 oz glass 
Club 63 – 24 bottle

A sweet but structured dessert apple wine made by partially freezing the juice of heirloom apples such as Rhode Island Greening, Porter’s Perfection, Jonathan, and Tremletts Bitter. Due to the limited nature of this product, glass pours are 3 oz and flight pours are 1 oz.

Hard Cider


–23 GROWLER TO-GO – 9 bottle (500 ML) – 8 glass –

Our first venture in cider made from Michigan grown European heritage apples, Engle’s Ransom is a dry, full-bodied cider that has powerful aromatics and a longer mid-palate and finish.


–23 GROWLER TO-GO – 8 BOTTLE (500 ML) – 7 GLASS –

Pippin is an old word for apple. This dry, classic-style cider is a representation of several different fermentations of many of our heirloom apple varietals blended together.


–14 BOTTLE (500 ML) – 9 GLASS (8 OZ)

Harrison was one of the most famous 18th century cider apples. We isolated this varietal, grown on Engle Ridge Farm, to bottle just 38 cases of cider. Served in a wine glass, this cider drinks much like Sauvignon Blanc, with a green herbal qualities and a bright acidity.


–12 BOTTLE (500 ML) – 8 GLASS (8 OZ)

Otterson is the name of a red-fleshed apple variety grown for us by the Michigan State Extension program. Red-fleshed varieties were propagated throughout the 20th Century in New Zealand and elsewhere. This rosé cider is dry and tart.


– 23 GROWLER TO-GO –9 BOTTLE (500 ML) – 8 GLASS –

Winesap is an apple with a long history dating back to colonial times. It was prized for its blend of juicy fruit and striking acidity. Our cider is 85% Winesap with equal parts Baldwin and Harrison al grown on the Engle Farm, and resulting in a great semi-dry cider with all the natural apple qualities we love to the core.


–23 GROWLER TO-GO – 9 BOTTLE (500 ML) – 8 GLASS –

This is a classic combination – apples and cinnamon. Whole cinnamon sticks are added to the juice from OMP apples and steeped in the cider for 4-6 weeks.


By the Bottle

Available by the bottle in-house or to-go. These wines are not typically available for flights or glass pours, but it never hurts to ask!

2020 Chardonnay

CLUB 63 – 25.6 BOTTLE 

In 2020 we selected a specific section of the Eden Hill Vineyard consisting of a single clone known for its opulent fruit and balanced ripening and fermented in 2-225L barrels and one 500L puncheon.


CLUB 63 – 20 BOTTLE 

For this vintage and vineyard, we extended our yeast time in hopes of drawing out a little more earthy quality and broadening the structure of the wine. To keep the fruit alive there is a touch of natural residual sugar.


– 28 BOTTLE 
CLUB 63 – 22.4 BOTTLE 

This vineyard has an esteemed reputation and back-to-back Jefferson Cups. This prestigious award is earned by the top wines at the invitation-only competition.

2020 Single Vineyard Blaufränkisch

– 55 BOTTLE 
CLUB 63 – 44 BOTTLE 
– set of all 3 in wooden gift box  -175 –

In place of a 2020 Reserve Blaufränkisch, Bryan chose to bottle each of our vineyards separately. The flavors and textures of each of the three wines are indeed distinct.

The MacDonald Vineyard Blau has flavors and textures that rise with a burst of acidity and then resolve slowly into a focused finish.

The Keenan Vineyard Blaufränkisch has deep fruit and softness that builds slowly and consistently and then finishes with a swirl of texture.

The Swanson Vineyard Blau picks up momentum and intensity while being punctuated with even texture throughout.


 – 8 bottle (500 ml) –

This Perry is 100% pear and has been aged, unfiltered, for four years. It has been bottle conditioned to develop a mousse and palate similar to Champagne.

Porter’s Perfection

–22 bottle (750 ml) –

Dating back to before 1900, Porter’s Perfection was first grown in the orchard of Charles Porter in East Lambrook, England. When an amazing crop was picked during harvest, we knew we had to create a new single variety cider to show off this apple’s bright, dense minerality. 



– 22 bottle (750 ml) –

Spitzenburg is an heirloom apple that used to be more widespread in the US and Michigan. It was pushed out of the mainstream by “new” varieties like northern spy which cooked more consistently. Spitzenburg (formally known as Esopus Spitzenburg) is a fickle tree in our northern climate. In 2020 we got our first real crop and had the opportunity to make this single-variety cider.


– 22 bottle (750 ml) –

The original Bayeux Tapestry was made to commemorate the Battle of Hastings in 1066. In this battle, a small Norman Army invaded Anglo-Saxon England to begin the Norman conquest of England and establish a new monarchy. This cider represents this notion by combining one French bittersweet apple – Binet Rouge – with two bittersweet English varieties – Yarlington Mill and Ashmead’s Kernel. The cider is dry and structured, with a broad display of flavor bound to the palate by an array of cohesive tannins. 


– 22 bottle (750 ml) –

Golden Russet is another American Heirloom apple discovered by chance in the 1800s. The skin of this apple is russetted like a potato which lends some texture to the juice. The tannins combined with high sugar make a natural  apple wine with elevated alcohol and age worthy potential. We left a touch of residual sugar in this cider to keep the alcohol moderate and to balance the heat and acidity.
