About Arrowhead Vineyards

Arrowhead Vineyards is located in the heart of Michigan’s “Wine Country”. Consisting of 375 acres of both juice and wine grapes, we are proudly family-owned and operated. Seven generations strong, we are continuing the traditions established by James Nitz since 1963 on the family estates.

Over the years needs have changed. Experimenting with many varietals, we now have over 15 different wine grapes and three varieties of juice grapes that grow best in Berrien County climates. One of which includes an elegant dessert wine, otherwise known as “Ice Wine”. Having a food license we are able to use both our wine presses to transform the frozen berries into juice right here on our farm. This is then sold and shipped to wineries.
    
The rolling hills of vineyards flow between Baroda and Berrien Springs, Michigan in gravely loam soils. The Lake Effect climate allows for the growing of both vinifera and hybrids varieties. Our fruit is thinned to the specific wineries requested price per ton for crop levels/acreage.

Our team of employees is, we believe, the best in the business. We share a like-minded attitude in that we all genuinely push for perfection and improvement at all levels, from grapes to the glass. Cheers to that!

Arrowhead Vineyards currently sells to wineries in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.  Being a commercial grape supplier, we sell all production to small and large winery clients for use in their own brands. Many which received national winning awards. Our ice wine juice even made its way to Washington DC to be served in the White House once in wine form. Owning multiple semis we have the option to personally bring your supply to you or pick up here at the farm.

Every year Arrowhead Vineyards is improving/ expanding here in Pure Michigan. If you are curious about a variety or placing an order contact information is provided below! HAVE A GRAPE DAY!
