The proximity of the winery and vineyards to Lake Michigan creates a unique micro-climate that is ideal for growing fruit and provides 12 Corners Vineyards the opportunity to produce an excellent selection of wine varieties. 12 Corners Vineyards has 115-acres planted with both viniferous and hybrid grapes and Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Noir are a few of the grape variety selections.

A conference room is available for bookings and is wired with a state of the art audio visual system that creates a perfect environment for business meetings or special events. The spacious outdoor area accommodates larger venues and weddings.
12 Corners Vineyards opened a tasting room in downtown South Haven, Michigan, at 511 Phoenix Street, in November, 2012. This tasting room is within walking distance to a pristine beach and boat marina and offers an equally pleasurable wine tasting experience.
The winery was created by several partners with agrarian backgrounds. They were seeking to participate in the expanding wine industry along Lake Michigan’s shore, and their goal was to create a vineyard experience that will accentuate all that West Michigan has to offer. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy a walk through the vineyards as part of their tasting experience.
The Winery’s name is inspired by its physical location in the “Hamlet” of Twelve Corners, Michigan and which is also incorporated into the winery’s logo.
