Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac established a vineyard in Detroit in 1702, one of the very first in North America. He delighted in the grapes he found there, and described them as "raisins de vigne avec peau mince et très bon jus qui fera un vin excellent." At Detroit Vineyards, we craft premium wines, ciders and meads using local fruit and quality winemaking practices.
Everything we sell is fermented, crushed, destemmed, pressed, racked and bottled right here in Detroit's Eastern Market. We are one of the countries largest urban wineries in the heart of America's renaissance city.
