Discover Wineries Near Eaton Rapids

June 13th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Wineries Near Eaton RapidsVisiting a winery is a wonderful way to meet interesting people, learn about the wine-making process, and taste some wonderful, regional wines – and many of the wineries near Eaton Rapids offer tours and tastes!

Making the trek to a winery or two takes the experience of enjoying a glass of wine from that of being just another refreshing drink and turns it into a much more intimate and educational experience. Even a wine novice will get a lot more than they suspect from visiting a vineyard.

Meeting the creators and knowing what goes into a wine – not just the toil and water but also the soil, the process, the care and study involved – makes enjoying a glass of wine that much more of an event with depth and resonance.

Luckily, more wineries than ever are open and welcoming to visitors – tours, tastes, retail sales, and sometimes small cafes are now common amenities of even small, family vineyards.

Our little corner of Michigan is no exception, with a number of wineries near Eaton Rapids and Lansing – and all within 30 miles of Medovue Estate – home of our premier Lansing B&B: English Inn Restaurant & Pub!
