WineMaker Conference • May 16-19, 2019 • Traverse City, Michigan

Join fellow home winemakers and wine lovers May 16-19, 2019 for our 12th annual WineMaker Conference located in beautiful Traverse City on the shores of Lake Michigan for full days packed with dozens of seminars and special events to help you make your own great wine. Seminars cover a full range of winemaking and grape growing subjects for all levels of hobbyists – from beginners to advanced. We also offer full-day winery tours and hands-on winemaking boot camps the day before and day after the main conference to round out your trip.

We are excited to be heading to the Midwest for the very first time in our conference’s history. Michigan ranks fourth in US grape production and the state’s wine industry is centered on the beautiful shoreline of Lake Michigan where two peninsulas jut into the lake dotted with vineyards and wineries in between beaches and cherry orchards.

We have opened up the early bird registration. Click here to sign up now and save $75 off the normal conference price and secure your spot at what should be another sold-out event.
