Every land has its makers. Crafters of furniture. Forgers of steel. Tillers of the earth. In Southwest Michigan, ours are masters of making wine, beer and spirits. June 9, we’re bringing these Berrien County makers and their amazing craft beverages to Weko Beach -- one of the most spectacular festival beaches on Lake Michigan. 

• We’ll pop corks, tap kegs, mix and pour your picks from 1 p.m. to sunset. Here’s your chance to taste something new – then try another and another. Or, stick to drinking your local go-to favorites. Your DD can stay hydrated with lots of refreshing water, juices and sodas. 

• Dance or chill to your kind of music. We’ve stacked the lineup with some of the best music makers in the region. They’ll pump out tunes all festival long at no extra charge.

• Did we say you get in for $10? So, invite every friend and family member 21 or older to join you. 

• Free parking. Free shuttles. That’s right. No charge. Shuttles will run frequently so you can come and go all festival long. Park at any of these three convenient Bridgman, MI locations:

Have you ever wondered how and why winemakers craft their red blends in a certain fashion? If so, our Art of Blending Competition is the perfect event for you!

At the event, guests will be split into 4 teams, and each team will be tasked with creating their own masterful red, Bordeaux-style blend using various barrel samples. Each team will be "coached" by both Lake Michigan College Program Director, Michael Moyer and experienced Winemaker and Viticulturist, Mike de Schaaf. The winning blend will win a gift card to LM Vintners Tasting Room.

Light appetizers will be provided during the competition. Tasting is a must throughout the blending process, as you perfect your Bordeaux-style blend.
