St. Julian Winery & Distillery

Paw Paw

St. Julian Winery & Distillery has been owned and operated by the same family for four generations. Our dedication to supporting and using only local Michigan farms and the production of quality wine and juice has been upheld for over 100 years. This long-term commitment to quality fruit has made us the most-awarded winery in Michigan.

St. Julian is dedicated to only using fruit from local Michigan farms. We work with over 25 growers, and we work with cherries, raspberries, peaches and pears. If you can grow it in Michigan, we’ve made it into a wine or spirit. Located in the state's traditional "fruit belt region", Lake Michigan Shore is the oldest modern commercial grape region of the state and home to a majority of Michigan vineyards and half of the state wine grape production. We harvest a diverse gamut of fruit from commonly known native, vinifera (“Old World” European grapes) and French-American varietals like Cabernet (Franc and Sauvignon), Chardonnay, Pinot (Noir and Gris), Riesling and Merlot to more unique varietals. Our vice president of winemaking is Michigan's first female winemaker and has piloted the Michigan wine industry.

We have over 100 products and include distilled spirits, ciders, and every type of wine from internationally recognized dry wines to award-winning sweet wines, classic dessert wines and wines using innovative wine-making techniques. We truly have something for everyone.
