Our open air tasting room is closed for the season. Thanks to all of the wonderful musicians and tasting room visitors who made this season so memorable.

We will re-open in April for the 2018 season.  Through the winter you can purchase wine by calling 877-876-5580 or emailing info@flyingotter.com for an appointment to pick up at the winery.

Thank you so much to all of our amazing friends who voted for us in the Daily Telegram’s Best of Lenawee competition. We are proud and humbled to say we won the Best Winery category, and took second in Best Wine. It has been a wonderful year for us, and although our outdoor tasting room is now closed for the season, we continue to work in the winery, making sure we will have your favorites and some new wines ready for our opening in April. Special thanks to our staff, Fletcher, Diane, and Connie, for making sure our customers had the best experience possible. Thanks to the incomparable showman, Cat Canyon, for making Friday Nights rock, and to all of our Saturday musicians who helped us Winedown Saturday nights. It has been a great year, and we look forward to 2018.

Our family operated vineyard and winery is the culmination of a life long love of wine. It has been said that wine is sunshine in a bottle. We agree with that sentiment and also firmly believe that the sunshine is meant to be enjoyed with friends and family while sharing good times and good food.
We stay focused on the basics - sustainable vineyard practices using a great deal of hand labor, starting with the planting of the vine until we harvest the grapes. This hands on approach and attention to detail allows us to produce the best quality grapes that can be locally grown, because you can't make great wine unless you start with great grapes. We have selected cold climate hybrid wine grapes that have been developed not only to survive our sometimes harsh climatic conditions but to actually thrive in our particular terroir and produce some wonderful, unique tasting wines.

The objective of our winery is to provide a friendly, unintimidating wine experience. Whether you are a wine expert looking for something new and different, or a wine novice just entering the wonderful world of wine, we welcome you to our website. We hope that you enjoy our wine and your wine experience.
