We Believe In wine That Tastes Incredible
Cherry Creek Cellars takes pride in crafting wines for everyone. The core of Cherry Creek will always be quality, hand crafted Michigan wines in a picturesque vineyard setting to be enjoyed with close friends and family. We recently expanded our offerings and we now feature a café, award-winning hard cider, craft beer and event space.
We produce some of the best Old World style, premium wines here in Michigan, but also don’t take ourselves too seriously and have plenty of sweet, fun & fruity table wines!
Our selection of hard ciders takes full advantage of the bountiful Michigan harvest. Featuring locally sourced apples, we often blend with fruit juices from all corners of the state.
We think our charcuterie boards, paninis, salads, or wraps are the perfect accompaniment to what you’re sipping on. We always use fresh, seasonal ingredients and it’s all made in house!
sip your way into Our “New Normal”.
- We will remain open for outdoor dining & wine/beer/cider by the bottle or glass – plenty of fire pits and patio heaters!
- The tasting room will operate as a retail store only; absolutely no eating or drinking inside the Schoolhouse
- Igloos are available for reservation by calling the tasting room; if available, they may be used on a first come first served basis. Igloos will be sanitized between groups – check with staff before entering an igloo!
- We will be temporarily suspending wine tastings. Wine will be available by the glass or bottle only until we determine it is safe/conducive to offer wine tastings again
We will continue to provide carry-out service – a full list of beverages and daily cafe menu items will be available on our online store.

Pull up a chair; get to know us.
We’ve been at this for over 100 years.
Four generations of Burtka’s have been making wines in this country for the enjoyment of their friends and families. John + Denise Burtka decided to turn this passion into career by creating Cherry Creek Winery in 2003, a boutique winery using old world hand crafting from their European roots. Nestled in the Irish Hills, the Burtka’s established a new destination for wine lovers in Michigan.
New Name, Same Great Wine.
Eventually the time was right to move on and in 2018 the Burtka’s chose Winemaker and Vineyard Manager, Patrick Spensley to carry the torch forward. Patrick got his start in the industry working in vineyards and wineries in New Zealand. Over the years since returning to the States, he has worked his way up the ranks at the newly renamed Cherry Creek Cellars, gaining a deep appreciation and passion for the industry, people + great wine.
We take our grapes very seriously.
We tend our 5 acre estate vineyard with care and take pride producing quality wines from the Hybrid varietals we grow. Although we experience more extreme winters than other vineyards, our warm summer days and cool nights are ideal for ripening premium wine grapes. Trust us, just try our big reds + fruity whites.
We’re Biased Toward Michigan.
We use our own grapes whenever possible. But in order to deliver the best product, we contract with some of the best growers in Michigan for premium Vinifera grapes. These grapes from the Lake Michigan Shore produce award winning wines year after year. We strongly believe in supporting our local economy and use only grapes and fruits from other Michigan vineyards.
Come on In!
