Spare Key Winery

Charlevoix, MI 49720
(231) 237-4785

Family is the Key to our vineyard and winery. In 2011 we began with just 400 vines, and with the help from our family and friends planting, trimming, and harvesting, we have continued to expand each year. The Spare Key Winery is one of the few estate-grown and bottled wineries in Northern Michigan, meaning our wines are made from grapes grown in our vineyard and processed on-site by our team. We offer a Spare Key to all visitors passing through, to unlock experiences and good times shared with each other. We hope Spare Key will become a Key in your life and encourage you to return to experience our Spare Key family again.

I had a fantastic experience here. I came in while on a weekend wine tour on a moody autumn day. The wine here was exceptional and unique. They are a small winery working with unique grapes making fascinating wines. It is always a delight to see people with passion innovating and that’s what’s being done here. They had a whiskey barrel aged white that was just superb. Buttery and Smokey, a delectable blend of whiskey and white wine I didn’t know I needed in my life. I’m very happy I stopped in. The owners are also very willing to speak on the wine making process so make sure to give them a listen. 5/5.

Such a beautiful area with delicious wines, cheeses, chocolates, etc! The owners were awesome, very nice and welcoming. My family really enjoyed the wine tasting and checking out the beautiful vineyard. 10/10 experience 🥰

Family owned and ran winery that is entirely estate grown. Love the concept and the wines! We did a tasting or a few here... All the wines were excellent! They have mostly dry wines, but a few sweets as well. We especially enjoyed the strawberry wine. They don't really serve food here, but there are a couple of snacks/appetizers you can purchase, including a delicious whitefish dip.

Wonderful wine and local chocolate tasting. Right off of US 31. The tasting room is really nice and enjoyed chatting with the owners and wine makers. All the grapes are grown on site! Recommend stopping in.

My husband and I stopped at Spare Key Winery after spending the day in Petoskey. The wine was amazing and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. There is a wide range of seating available and the outdoor seating was relaxing. We enjoyed talking with two of the owners and hanging out with their dog Brew while having two rounds of wine tastings. If you’re looking for a quaint and family owned winery, this is it! The bottles of wine are reasonably priced and extremely enjoyable. We will be back next time we’re near the area.
