The Barrel Room
More than one hundred years ago, the State Hospital built two small buildings into the hill on Yellow Drive, directly behind the current day Left Foot Charley. These small buildings had one large purpose, to cellar the fruits and vegetables grown on campus so patients and staff could enjoy them year round.
Over sixty years after the last fruits were taken from the root cellar, LFC began using one of these buildings for its original intention- aging and storing locally grown crops. Here, in this naturally climate controlled building, we are aging our barreled wines for up to three years and offering one of a kind tasting experiences.

Your knowledgeable server will guide you through wines selected by winemaker Bryan Ulbrich. Learn the story of our wines and compare unique varietals grown in Northern Michigan. This enhanced tasting will include a charcuterie and cheese board with delectable accouterments, sure to complement the wines.
