Dr. Dave Miller Michigan Wine Blog
Welcome to White Pine Winery!
White Pine Winery showcases Southwest Michigan’s finest wines and warm hospitality in our lakeshore destination in the charming town of St. Joseph. We produce a range of delicious red and white wines and specialize in aromatic whites like Riesling and Pinot Gris and fruit driven reds like Syrah and Merlot. These varieties grow particularly well here given the lake effect which brings warm days and cool evenings to the vines during the important spring and fall growing seasons. Owner and winemaker, Dr. David Miller, is a noted winemaker and viticulturist with over 30 years of experience. Named after our state tree, White Pine characterizes Michigan’s natural beauty. We invite you to visit our tasting room at 317 State Street.
Summer is THE season in southwest Michigan! There is so much to do and see, deciding how to spend your time can be a challenge. No matter what, be sure to check out the latest vintage from White Pine. We have our Ladyslipper Blush - a dry rose' - for the first time this year. It is the perfect summer sipper and perfectly fills in for a red wine on a hot summer day. So pick up some wine and explore the wonders of southwest Michigan!
We hope to see you soon and share some of our favorite picks for beaches, dunes, restaurants and shops in our neighborhood.
