Blue Water Winery & Vineyards

About a decade ago, after studying with industry experts at University of California (UC Davis) to gain the core knowledge of commercial wine making, we left the busy life of software executives in downtown Chicago and literally – “bought the farm”. We planted a 10 acre vineyard near the shores of Lake Huron because it was near to the customers and for the “lake effect”. The vineyard is now eight years old, very vigorous, and producing abundant high quality wine grapes – Chardonnay, Cab Franc, Riesling, Pinot Noir, Gewürztraminer, Zweigelt, Grüner Veltliner, and more.
