The Napa Valley of the Midwest

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (WOOD) Southwest Michigan is becoming known as the “Napa Valley of the Midwest.” More than a dozen wineries and tasting rooms are nestled together in that area.

Rachael checked out 12 Corners Vineyards in Benton Harbor, located just off exit one off I-196. It’s on a 115 acre estate, including a tasting room. You can enjoy beverages at the 90 feet of bar space or on the outdoor patio. It also hosts private events, meetings, parties, and weddings. 12 Corners Vineyards also has tasting rooms on Main Street in downtown South Haven and in the Harbourfront Place Building in Grand Haven.

On Saturday, June 28, 12 Corners is celebrating its one year anniversary with live music from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Then on Saturday, July 12, they will host their second annual Artist Market, featuring outdoor arts and a craft sale, live music, and wood fired pizza.
