Our Story

About Us

We, owners Melanie and Lauren, grew up in the small town of Coloma, Michigan in the heart of the Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail. Our grandmother sparked our interest and taste for wine at a young age when she fed us small sips of her homemade Niagara and Concord wines made from the grapes grown on the family farm. As we grew older, we became avid wine drinkers and aficionados while working together in the Michigan wine industry and opened Lazy Ballerina Winery in 2015. Less than two years later, in June of 2017, we opened our second tasting room in nearby Bridgman, Michigan.

About Our
Tasting Rooms

Both of our tasting rooms are located in picturesque beach towns along the Lake Michigan shore. We designed our tasting rooms in a café style setting which includes an array of comfortable seating for you to enjoy our small batch boutique wines.
 

Our Saint Joseph wine tasting room is located in the heart of downtown. It is walking distance to Silver Beach, numerous restaurants and a variety of shops and boutiques. The downtown is known for hosting events all year round!
 

Our Bridgman wine tasting room offers a shaded seating area where you can enjoy our wine outdoors and is just a few steps away from two breweries and unique shops/restaurants.

No, we weren't dancers (but give us enough wine and you may see us try)!  "Lazy Ballerina" is a term used in viticulture.  It refers to a type of trellis system that a wine grapevine is grown on.  We decided to make the name our own and create a fun, slightly quirky wine brand to appeal to women, dancers (or those that try) and all Michigan wine lovers alike!
