FolkLor Wine and Cider

16820 Ferry Road,
Charlevoix , MI 49720

FolkLor Wine and Cider creates delicious wines and ciders start in the field with healthy soil, well cared-for plants, and a thriving ecosystem. It's part of their winemaking philosophy too - to let the fruit shine and add or take away as little as possible on its journey to the bottle. Their wines and ciders reflect the liquid landscape of Northern Michigan and everything it has to offer. Visit their website for tasting room hours and to book a private tour of their organically farmed vineyards and orchards.

You can also find them at the Downtown Charlevoix Farmers Market every Thursday June through September. 

FolkLor was started by husband and wife, Derrick Vogel & Izabela Babinska, two Northern Michigan enthusiasts, lake swimmers and dry Riesling devotees.

Absolutely worth the drive! Excellent wines that would satisfy any taste. My favorites were the Ode to Home cider (very unique combo of fermented apple and grape) and the Icebox Rose. The selection of Riesling was amazing. The highlight of the experience, though, was the private tour with Derrick. He is extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and those are surpassed only by his passion for his craft. The tour added immensely to an already great time and I would recommend it to anyone who loves Northern Michigan, wine and cider, or just a good time with awesome hosts.

New winery and vineyard in Charlevoix. New vines will provide new varietals to the offerings of the Tip Of the Mitt wineries. Current offerings are from the 2020 and 2021 seasons yielding a more balanced wine. Hands on owners are welcoming and willing to share their vision for future seasons. Look forward to watching and tasting as they grow. Recommend a visit if you are in the area.

We had a great wine tasting at Folklor! The owners care about the craft of producing quality, organic wines and it shows in the final product. We ended up getting multiple bottles to-go!

We had a WONDERFUL time tasting the wine and cider at Folklore. Their quiet tasting room is off the main road and set beautifully with a view of the orchard and vineyard. Derrick spent almost an hour telling us stories and explaining different parts of the winemaking process. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, the drinks were wonderful, and we look forward to coming back someday. A hidden gem not to be missed!

Went for a tour and wine tasting, had a lovely experience. The property is nice, and the wine and cider were very good for being organic! You can tell the owners have put a lot of work and thought into their product. Always happy to support hard working people with a vision, who love what they do, and care about their community.
