Three Fires Wine opened its tasting room in Suttons Bay, Michigan in October 2013 offering three white and four red wines made from classic European vinifera varietals such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. All wines are dry and masterfully crafted in the French style to be complex, balanced and go well with fine food. Three Fires Wine uses only 100% Michigan grapes carefully selected from premier viticulture regions across Michigan and specializes in producing fine red wine. Visit us at
