"The Old Way Crafted to Modern Day..".
At Modern Craft Winery, our passion is wine. And, our patrons especially love our grape, fruit and mead wines! What makes our wines unique? We craft small vats of individual, distinctly different wines using a process that blends old and new techniques. The resulting tastes are so remarkable that we have patented our own wine-making process. We are so proud that our wines are being enjoyed with good food, friends and family. Whether it’s celebrating memories or making new ones, Modern Craft Winery invites you to discover our remarkable array of wines. We invite you to a pleasurable visit at any one of our Modern Craft Winery "Tasting Rooms" for a truly special experience and to taste for yourself. We think you, too, will join our growing family of valued appreciated patrons.

Our wines are well balanced, fruity, priced to please, and personal as a fond embrace. We welcome visitors to our winery seven days a week to sample and to buy, to browse and to banter in our warm, welcoming and cheerful atmosphere. Rose Valley Winery is committed to making quality wines from locally-grown, cold-hardy grapes. We strive to present the “Gifts of Nature” in a simple and personal manner. As only the second winery of our kind on the eastern side of Michigan’s lower peninsula, we seek to encourage others to make wine as well, hoping to lead the way in the formation of an eastern wine community in the state.

The business began by providing beer and wine equipment and ingredients for the home beer and wine maker while the signature wines were being carefully produced from fruit grown by local farms. In January of 2003 the wines were introduced to the public in the tasting room located within the winery. Beginning with the Silver City Red (Merlot) and Silver City White (Riesling) in the grape variety and the Apple, Blueberry, Strawberry and Raspberry in the fruit varieties the wines were well received.
