  • Our daughter took us here because she wanted to try it. She likes sweet wines but we like dry wines. Their dry wines are not very wine but they do have some very tasty and interesting wines. I even dr...  more »

  • UPDATE 9/16/17: I came back and I'm so happy I did! I'm sitting here at Mackinaw Valley Winery, enjoying a delicious glass of Cayuga White. Ben, from the winery, reached out to me and offered us a table if we decided to come by again to make up for the poor experience of our ending last time! I don't blame the winery for what happened last time, it was just unfortunate that it had occurred. I seriously love this venue and am happy to keep coming back. Mackinaw Valley Winery obviously cares for their customers and it shows and that goes a long way for us! Thanks Ben and Mackinaw Valley Winery!!! What a wonderful venue! I came here for my first time this past Saturday and loved it. The wines are incredibly reasonably priced. And delicious! The scenery is absolutely gorgeous! The place is great for live music as well. I would consider going back. However, a truly wonderful evening, was ruined when we came back to our table, which we had to pay to reserve. We had left the table to go watch the band, leaving behind a half drank bottle of wine, half drank water bottle, and an empty wine glass, which cost us a $3 deposit initially. When we returned from watching the band, roughly 45 minutes, our water bottle was missing, along with our wine glass. But oddly enough, our wine was untouched. When I went back to the counter, and told the woman of our situation, nothing was done. I wanted a pair of wine glasses, so I spent the extra $3 for another glass. It's not a matter of the small amount of money. It's the principle. It's quite unfortunate that Mackinaw Valley Winery attracts that type of clientele. That would be the only considering factor in not going back. We had left in a very upset mood, in fact, I was quite pissed off. Perhaps next time I'll bring a backpack for our belongings if we choose to step away. Had this not happened, I would've hands down given it 5/5 stars.
  • Nice place. The summer weekend parties are nice. Sometimes the having the same band several weekends in a row gets old. I haven't had a lot of their wine, but if I recall it's really sweet. I like some of it.
  • Great setting to drink a glass of wine and enjoy the relaxing scenery. The wine here is pretty darn good and they have a reasonable selection of chocolates and things to snack on along with a gift shop with wine oriented knickknacks.
  • Had a fantastic time at the Art and Wine Festival! I highly recommend enjoying great wine, good food and unique art in this beautiful setting.
  • Great selection of wine, I had a great day. Highly recommended!
