four generations of Burtka’s have been making wines in this country for the enjoyment of their family and friends. Nestled in the Irish Hills, minutes from several lakes and Michigan International Speedway, John & Denise Burtka have created a new destination for wine lovers. Based on their European roots, they built a boutique winery that makes award winning wines, using old world hand crafting.
