ALL YOU MEAD IS LOVEScroll for more
St. Ambrose Cellars
40 years of beekeeping led us to making mead - which led to making wine ... then we added ciders ... and now we've got beer and pizza. Where are we headed next? Nobody knows.
At St. Ambrose Cellars, we make award-winning meads, wines, ciders, and beers. Our tasting room features 18 draft taps and a full menu of still meads, red wines, and white wines. Our food truck and brick oven pizza serve up the eats on weekends, and talented musicians take the stage every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
You'll find a nine hole disc golf course, bocce ball court, yard games, and a bee garden outside.
If that isn't enough - you'll also find our meads in stores across the nation and available for shipping to 37 (and counting!) states via our online storefront.
Wine Library Month
All March at St. Ambrose Cellars we are celebrating National Reading Month by opening up our wine library to benefit local libraries! Join us for tours of our wine library every Saturday at 1 PM or 3 PM - for $15 you'll get a special tasting experience featuring our winemakers and tastings of our vintage wines that are no longer available in the tasting room.
On weekends we will have special flights available featuring our library wines - this selection will change with the availability.
Proceeds from our events this month will go to the Empire and Benzonia Libraries.
Mead is the world's oldest alcoholic beverage, and is made with fermented honey, water, and yeast. Our draft meads take this ancient art and add carbonation and bold new flavors for a gluten-free, 7% ABV drink with a satisfying sweetness and exciting taste.
In our tasting room we have 18 taps featuring a selection of draft meads, ciders, and beers. We distribute 8 varieties of our draft mead to stores around the country, and direct to you with our online store.
CHEESE LADY RETURNS!
On March 24th we welcome back Tina the Traverse City Cheese Lady for another fantastic cheese, mead, wine, and beer pairing event - join us starting at 12PM for 7 cheese, five drinks, and lots of fun for just $15 per pairing. No advance tickets, just show up between 12 PM and 4PM - but be warned, the cheese tends to go fast!
From Benzie County and the Lake Michigan Shore, we take the best grapes we can find and turn them into award winning wines. Our current lineup features two winners of gold medals at the Michigan Wine Competition and plenty of other high achievers.
Our wine is available in stores, but if you can't find it near you, you can order direct from the website and have it shipped to your door in 39 states.
Really Good Beer
Our newest adventure is Brose Brewing - the beer arm of our operation. Try the latest concotions from our brewmasters right here in the tap room or in select local establishments - no bottles for sale in stores ... yet.
Nestled in the heart of Benzie County and just minutes from landmarks like the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore, we're the perfect spot to get away from the hustle of the Grand Traverse wine trails and enjoy a delicious and scenic detour.
We offer five tastes of any product for just $5, and flight boards for $10 - unless they happen to be on special for $8. We also have charcuterie available any time we are open, and a food truck that operates Thursdays-Saturdays from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
