Sanilac Wineries

Fine Wine
& Brews

The growing wine industry is blooming in Sanilac County and the thumb area, offering a wide selection of wines to tempt every taste bud!


From wine tasting rooms with live music and food to down-on-the-farm charm, our wineries have a lot to offer! Take a drive and visit the vineyards, and learn the art of winemaking for yourself. Many varieties of wine throughout the thumb feature fruit such as pears, apples, and blackberries, to name only a few. Of course, classic wine from grapes such as the Concorde and Chardonnay are plentiful; and there are even Gold medal wines available from winemakers right here in the thumb!

Starting from the south and working our way north, is downtown Lexington. The Lexington Brewing Company and Wine House is open year-round and features wine tasting, food and entertainment. Their second location is the Blue Water Winery and Vineyard located at 7131 Holverson Road, south of Port Sanilac. Onsite wine tasting in season is available at this location as well as some unique events including an opportunity to help harvest the grapes in the fall!


The site for our next stop, 3 North Vines Winery, located at 5940 Peck Road in Croswell, was selected for its beauty, geological significance, and its proximity to Lake Huron. The vineyard and winery are located on thirty five acres of rolling hills, dotted with three ponds and glimpses of Lake Huron. Geologically, the site is protected by the Port Huron Moraine that helps extend the lake effect weather conditions to Michigan’s east coast. The 3 North team includes the owners Nate and Kristi Shopbell, the advisory board, and an amazing supportive group of family and friends.

All of our wineries have their own special flavor, but they all share two things in common: pride in their craftsmanship and joy of sharing conversation with visitors, so enjoy and drive safely!
