“A great winery experience on the southern Lake Michigan shore”.
This is how Shady Creek Winery has described itself on its website. I have to say I do agree. When you walk into the gift shop you don’t feel like you’re in a place of business. You almost feel like you’re at home. The atmosphere is cozy with artwork on the walls, a large fireplace in the center of the main room, and plenty of places to sit, relax, and enjoy some of LaPorte County’s finest wine.
The gift shop has many items available for sale from wine accessories to the artwork on the walls to the delicious bottles of wine. The artwork featured at Shady Creek is created by local artists in the LaPorte County area. The winery has some adorable bottle stoppers that make great gifts. And the staff is friendly and willing to help with whatever you might be searching for.
The winery offers live music by Dave Marciniak on Sundays from 1-4 PM. Shady Creek is also available to host private events. They offer wine tastings for smaller groups up to 24 people. For the larger groups they will help you find a caterer and open the whole facility and the surrounding grounds for your event.
What the winery is best known for, of course, is their wines. From red to white, dry to semi-sweet, Shady Creek has a several varieties to choose from. You can spend some time in the tasting room to find that perfect wine. Shady Creek also offers “Perfect Pairing Plates”-pairing certain foods with the wine to bring out the best flavor-at a very reasonable price.
Don’t miss out on this gem in LaPorte County. Stop in to taste some wine and mingle with some friendly people at the winery. Shady Creek is open Wednesday-Sunday, March-mid December. Check their website for more information: www.shadycreekwinery.com
