Folklor Wine & Cider

We think of ourselves as fruit growers first and wine and cider makers second. We believe that delicious wines and ciders start with healthy soil and well-cared-for plants.

We love navigating the seasonality of Northern Michigan. Deep, snowy winters. Blustery springs. Summers full of lake swims. It’s a challenging and exciting place to farm and the fruit that thrives here is really special.

Our goal is to produce our wines and ciders with 100% estate-grown fruit from our home farm. The Home Farm is located on the south side of Charlevoix, just a couple miles from the shores of Lake Michigan. The Home Farm is situated on 52 rolling acres that were previously a family-owned u-pick apple and cherry farm. We have the honor of restoring the 50-year-old orchards that have largely been abandoned and grown wild over the past decade. There are 16 varieties of apples growing here including culinary, crab, and heirloom varieties, and a couple dozen scraggly pears.

Our philosophy is to let the fruit shine and add or take away as little as possible on its journey to the bottle. We look forward to seeing you Up North and sharing a glass soon!
