A bottle of Tanglewood Winery's Peach wine lying on the picnic blanket with a bag of fresh peaches and two glasses of wine.


More fruit makes a better wine. Tanglewood’s Peach is a semi-sweet peach wine made with 100% local Michigan peaches. Sometimes simple is better, and nothing beats the flavor of a fresh peach with no artificial flavors. 

Join us on September 9, 2023, from 12 PM to 9 PM to celebrate the release of Peach!


A bottle of Tanglewood Winery's Bourbon Barrel Blue Blood on the table next to a glass of wine and two candles.

Bourbon Barrel Blue Blood

We're proud to offer the richest blueberry wine around: Bourbon Barrel Blue Blood. Aged in bourbon barrels for one year, Blue Blood is carefully crafted in small batches to bring out the most intense flavor possible. Rich and decadent with a heavy body, Bourbon Barrel Blue Blood uses no artificial flavors and no fillers - just a lot of high-antioxidant fruit. 

Join us on September 22, 2023, from 4 PM to 9 PM to celebrate the release of Bourbon Barrel Blue Blood!

Bottles of Tanglewood Winery's Traminette white wine are lying on the table alongside fruit and flowers, ready for a spiced white wine sangria.

Spiced White Wine Sangria Recipe

This spiced white wine sangria is a refreshing, yet cozy way to celebrate the flavors of fall.


  • 1 bottle of Tanglewood’s Traminette
  • 1 apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 pear, thinly sliced
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup honey (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite brandy or orange liqueur (optional)
  • 1 cup sparkling water or club soda
  • Ice cubes
  • Fresh mint leaves for garnish


Prepare the Fruits: Thinly slice the apple, pear, and orange. You can leave the peels on for added color and flavor.

Combine Ingredients: In a large pitcher, first add the sliced fruits, cinnamon stick, and ground nutmeg. Then pour in the white wine. Add the honey or maple syrup to sweeten the sangria, adjusting to your preference. And if you're looking for a bit of extra warmth, you can also add the optional brandy or orange liqueur.

Chill: Allow the mixture to chill in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to meld. The longer it chills, the more the fruits will infuse the wine with their essence.

Add Sparkle: Just before serving, add the sparkling water or club soda to the pitcher. This will give your sangria a delightful effervescence.

Garnish & Serve: Fill glasses with ice cubes and pour the spiced white wine sangria over the ice. Garnish each glass with fresh mint leaves for a burst of color and aroma.

Two mugs of mulled red wine using Tanglewood Winery's Frontenac are ready to drink after being warmed on the stove.

Mulled Red Wine Recipe

This mulled red wine recipe is perfect for gatherings and cozy nights by the fireplace.


  • 1 bottle of Tanglewood’s Frontenac
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 8-10 whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1-2 star anise pods
  • 1/4 cup honey or brown sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 cup brandy or spiced rum for extra warmth (optional)
  • Orange slices and cinnamon sticks for garnish (optional)


Combine Ingredients. Add wine, brandy, orange slices, cloves, cinnamon, star anise, and 2 tablespoons sweetener to a large saucepan. Stir briefly to combine.

Simmer. Cook the mulled wine on medium-high heat until it just barely reaches a simmer. (Avoid letting it bubble — you don’t want to boil off the alcohol.)  Reduce heat to low, cover, and let the wine simmer anywhere from 15 minutes to 3 hours.

Strain. Using a fine mesh strainer, remove and discard the orange slices, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and star anise. Give the mulled wine a taste, and stir in extra sweetener if needed.

Garnish & Serve. Serve warm in mugs, garnished with a fresh cinnamon stick and an orange slice.

Tanglewood Winery's Tasting Room is packed with people ready to order a drink from the bar.
