Pioneer Wine Trail
Southeast Michigan's newest pioneers are the vintner's of the early 21st century, growing and selling special wines for you to discover.
Southeastern Michigan's Pioneer wine making region is a great place to spend a few hours.....or a few days! The beautiful rolling irish hills, many lakes and Hidden Lake Gardens are right along the trail. Relax, savor our wines, stop for some antiquing and perhaps stay in one of the many bed & breakfast inns in the area.
We only do groups of 16 or more for Pioneer Wine Trail tours.
Chateau Aeronautique Winery
Chateau Aeronautique Winery was founded on the ideals of creating fine wines from Michigan grapes and offering those wines for tasting in a beautiful, relaxing setting. The theme of the Winery is the airpark lifestyle ~ flying, vintage airplanes, and living in a home with hangar on a grass runway surrounded by forests. The models for the Winery are the chateau wineries of Bordeaux, France. The reason for the Winery is a passion for viniculture ~ the aromas of the Winery, the mystique of the Wine Cellar, and the pleasures of the Tasting Room.
Cherry Creek Old Schoolhouse Winery
For over 100 years, four generations of Burtka’s have been making wines in this country for the enjoyment of their family and friends. Nestled in the Irish Hills, minutes from several lakes and
Michigan International Speedway, John & Denise Burtka have created a new destination for wine lovers. Based on their European roots, they built a boutique winery that makes award winning wines,
using old world hand crafting.
Located in a Historic 1870 Schoolhouse, this is one stop you don't want to miss! Come and taste their Award Winning Wines at the knotty pine bar. Sample Cherry Creeks freshly made Butter Fudge, or taste their Michigan Cherry Preserves. Sample gourmet items like fresh pressed Artisan Olive Oil or 18 year old Balsamic Vinegar from Modena Italy, all bottled on site for you. Shop our many fine Michigan products and wine gifts, and even create that special Gift Basket. Stop by on Saturday for your fresh baked French Baguettes or John's special Vintners Blend locally roasted coffee. As a rule, all visitors under the age of 12 are required to ring the 138 year old school bell ONCE before their parents will be served.
In the summertime have a glass of wine while you enjoy our appetizers overlooking the vineyards or listening to our weekend entertainment. Come visit our family at the friendly winery.......Cherry Creek!
