We went here for wine tasting and found the experience a bit odd. The staff seemed to be focused on tips, ringing the bell and cheering every time a tip was given. It also wasn't a good place to taste a range of wines, as they required you to buy glasses of wine rather than have small tastes. I would... More

Thanks for visiting us and trying our sparkling wines. Our tasting room does get rowdy, especially on Saturdays during the busy season and holiday weekends. We have just opened our TentBar, which is located just outside of our tasting room and features wine from LMawby, MLawrence, and bigLITTLE paired with featured local food items. Our TentBar offers a quieter, more... More

Great place to visit! If you do enjoy Champagne, this is a required tasting. Technically it can't be called champagne because it's not grown & made in the Champagne region of France...however some of the products in the L. Mawby line (Mille vintages, Blanc de Noirs, Blanc de Blancs) are as good as the bubbly I've tasted in France. The... More

I think this is the only winery in the area that specializes in sparkling wines. The wines we sampled were all crisp and clean. The gentleman doing our pouring was great at helping us choose wines to sample. We purchased a flight tray for $5. It included crackers, a whitefish dip and 2 different half glasses of delicious sparkling wine.... More

They specialize in bubbly wines - or champagnes.... I would recommend doing a small tasting and then getting a small plate of goat cheese of white fish and sit out back with your 2 favorites.

We returned to L Mawby recently and we were impressed again. Larry Mawby is the furthest thing from a stuffy wine maker--the space is friendly and rustic and be sure to check out the irreverent signs on the walls. Larry is a genius at sparkling wines--I would strongly advise even those who do not think they like sparkling wines, you... More

This is the only sparkling winery in the area. It is a fun, welcoming tasting room. There is not one wine I dislike. A must for folks touring wine country in northern Michigan!

Welcoming testing room. We were greeted the minute we walked into the place. All sparkling or champagne. Complimentary two glasses. Bought a bottle for home.
