Welcome to WaterFire
WaterFire wines express our unparalleled commitment to the Great Lakes. As the first Certified Sustainable vineyard in the Midwest, we go to great lengths to protect the landscape around us, using no herbicides and low risk pesticides, minimizing impacts to air and water, caring for our employees and making some delicious and superior wines in the process.
Our wines are fashioned in small batches from grapes we farm ourselves. We follow Certified Sustainable practices in the vineyard and exacting cellar standards to bring finessed and elegant flavors of the Torch Lake region directly to your table.
We specialize in regionally underrepresented European varieties - Sauvignon Blanc and Grüner Veltliner - and we also produce superb Rieslings.
Everything is important in winemaking — the fruit, the season, staying flexible, attending to every last detail — but nothing matters more than making people happy and keeping our land healthy. So join us for a tasting, a tour, a wine dinner, or a vacation. Experience Michigan's first Certified Sustainable wines.
