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 use classic French vintner practices in unison with modern-day winemaking techniques to produce wine, combining the best of what both the Old and New World have to offer.
Detroit Vineyards was born of a love of vineyards, wine culture and the idea of growing grapes in Detroit. We are uniquely proud to grow, process and bottle high-quality wines in what is truly America's Renaissance City.
