The winery has since grown to around 6000 cases and is located in the former Northern Michigan Asylum for the Insane in Traverse City, Michigan.

This OMP vineyard is at the southern edge of Old Mission Peninsula. The plants are digging into very dense clay and gravel packed layers. The site is warm and tends to produce small clusters that struggle in the sparse conditions. The Antrim Vineyard is a silt dominant site. It sits on the Kalkaska shale and is going to be a significant site as it ages. The Leelanau sit is amid the Sleeping Bear Dunes and carries all the bright fresh acidity we expect from sandy soils.
