Au Gres Winery & Tasting Room


Friday & Saturday: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

Sunday: noon - 5 p.m.

Our Winery and our very first Tasting Room, Au Gres is our home, our heart and our hideout. A comfortable, relaxed setting in the quaint town center of Au Gres, our doors are open to the adventure enthusiast!

With first-class boat launches to the clear, inviting waters of Lake Huron and the Au Gres River, camping, canoeing, and swimming – and snowmobiling, ice fishing and cross-country skiing – it’s small-town fun around here in the best possible way.

Pause your travels long enough to sample Pure Michigan, Modern Craft-style. When you arrive, our Tasting Room Associate will greet and welcome you in. Each guest may choose up to eight samples from our available wine selection – no limit on bottles to go.

We welcome large or small groups. (Busses and RV’s? We go way back! Welcome!) Just bring a smile, and we look forward to accommodating you, memorably.

West Branch Tasting Room

Monday – Saturday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
*Special Hours By Appointment

Step back in time into the historic landmark and restored turn-of-the-century building that houses both a Modern Craft Winery Tasty Room and The Silver Lining Boutique. You’ll be telling your friends about your Taste Adventure here!

Let owners Peter and Samantha Fabbri tell you stories about the rich and colorful past of their retail location with high, tin-covered ceilings and Victorian charm – it’s been in existence since 1881! Peruse the Boutique’s stylish sterling silver jewelry, pursed, journals, pottery and other unique items. And, of course, enjoy the Modern Craft Winery Tasting Room!

When the State of Michigan relaxed rules, allowing wine tasting rooms under the same roof of existing businesses, Peter and Samantha jumped at the chance to be one of the first in the state to take advantage. They opened West Branch Tasting Room August 31, 2012. Their vision is exquisite, and Peter and Sam are more than business associates – they are friends of Modern Craft Winery. They’re good people, our people. (You’ll like them, too.)

Take a break from it all…Experience flavor and fun in a truly charming location, and enjoy a unique wine tasting experience you’ll never forget.

Entrepreneurs Mark and Venita Larson are associates and friends of Modern Craft Winery, and they “crafted” a wine tasting room that has been entertaining visitors since June 1st of 2012.

Located along a beautiful scenic stretch between Oscoda and Alpena, Harrisville offers quaint shops, galleries and restaurants, but it’s Harrisville’s Modern Craft Mixperience Room that makes them remember their stay. Begin your Northbound adventure on our patio.
