Good Harbor Vineyards: A Full Production Winery

The Simpson Family Estates has been producing high quality wine at Good Harbor Vineyards for over 40 years. Pioneers in the Northern Michigan wine industry, the family believes great wine doesn't need to come at an extravagant cost. Good Harbor wines are known for over delivering on wine quality, while keeping the price tag accessible to all.

Farming Heritage

Family patriarch John W. Simpson first planted his roots on the Leelanau Peninsula in the fruit farming industry back in the 1950s. After his son, Bruce Simpson, returned from studying viticulture and oenology at University of California, Davis, he and his wife, Debbie planted grapes. Good Harbor Vineyards opened its doors in 1980, and is now run by second generation vitners, siblings Sam and Taylor Simpson.

Lake Effect Benefits

Good Harbor Vineyards is located two miles East of the Lake Michigan Coastline in the Good Harbor basin. This water source and protective bay, combined with its cool climate creates ideal growing conditions for high quality, and now nationally recognized wine. In addition, the deep snow blanketing the vines provides a protective, insulating cover for the vines through the cold winer months.

Focus on Farming

The Simpson family has always focused on their farming roots, and believe that high quality wines are produced first in the vineyard and then continued further in the cellar. Good Harbor Vineyards is a full production winery and farming operation.

Pioneers of the Michigan Wine Industry

Good Harbor was the fourth winery established on the Leelanau Peninsula and remained one of four operating wineries until the mid 1990’s. There are now over 40 wineries in Northern Michigan, attracting millions of visitors from the Midwest and around the country.
