  • Good Michigan product; but don't trust your business gifts to them. Don't let their warehouse and logistics team make you and your business look like an idiot like they did to me. I've been doing business with Cherry Republic since 2012 and have spent thousands with them. I've always sent my clients "Super Seven" (one of the most expensive packages). I've been visiting Glen Arbor since a child and watched this business grow. A client mentioned to me in 2014 how they loved the "turtle chocolates" and "sausage" they received. Someone at Cherry Republic charged me for a super seven but replaced it with another package without letting me know. Embarrassed; I called customer service and they gave me a $50 gift card to remedy the situation...ok that was nice; I'll let it slide. In 2016, it was the last straw. I sent the business gifts Excel sheet filled out properly as usual mid-November 2016. In December I received a photo from a client asking if they had received the intended gift? They received a package with another clients holiday message in it. The result of this was that it let that particular customer know who else I was doing business with and made my business look incompetent. Knowing the rest of the packages were in shipment to all of my other clients I had to damage control the rest of them and let them all know they may receive messages addressed to other clients; again making my business look incompetent. Frantic; I tried to contact Cherry Republic business gifts. They send out no shipping information to businesses; so you have no way of tracking shipments. It was after 5pm; but I sent them an e-mail anyway. The next day, it was nearing 9am without hearing anything from them so I called. Was told they will check the warehouse. Heard back from them at 10:30am to 11:00am..surprise most of the other shipments had already been delivered at that time except one. I told them to stop the shipment; ensure the message in it was correct, then re-ship it. The pain still doesn't stop there. The particular business this package was supposed to go to has two offices. I sent one super seven to each office. The one in-route package was to a west coast office. As far as I know Cherry Republic stopped this package, ensured it was correct and sent it on. Good job there. Mysteriously I get contacted by the west coast office again a week later letting me know they received a second shipment. As far as we both know the mid-US office never received a shipment to begin with...so my west coast client ships the holiday gift themselves to their mid-US office. Complete incompetence all around. I've worked for years to build a small contracting business and I would have been better off to not send anything through Cherry Republic this year. If this has happened to me 2x in the last four years I'm confident it is happening to other people as well. P.S. Their print advertising is also overly aggressive. I don't need six to eight brochures sent to two different addresses every year showcasing the same products over and over again.
  • Fun family loving place. It is nice to have a place where the family is included.
  • Really cool place to visit if you're in the peninsula. They are a little out of the way compared to the other wineries, but certainly worth a visit, especially if you like cherry wine! We visited most recently as part of the Taste the Season event where they served a spicy feta dip with pita bread and veggies, with their balaton cherry wine. There was a new moscato that we tasted and I loved, so I brought a bottle of that home. They also have a store full of samples and things to purchase, and a cafe with coffee and lattes.
  • Probably the best valued food place in Glen Arbor. Service is fast and the food is good and reasonably priced. The stores are great with lots of free samples. If you like cherries then you have to come here! Try out the world championship pit spitting arena!
  • This is the Willy Wonka Factory for Cherries. Every single thing you get here is fresh and amazing. I got their chocolate cherry coffee and shared it out with friends. TONS of free samples.
