Many Grand Rapidians have memories of day trips to Robinette's Apple Orchard. With fresh cider, apple doughnuts, gift shops, horse drawn hay rides, and plenty of other family friendly activities, they are hard to forget.
One activity that tends to go under the radar is the wine tasting. A wide selection of Michigan wines await the 21 and up visitors, they come with friendly and knowledgeable service and a unique glass you get to take home with you.
For only $3, or $5 a couple, visitors can select 6 of 13 tastes including the Mirtillo, a sweet blueberry wine, and the Cyser, which is rich with honey and spiced for a complex flavor, and many more. The apple wines are made by Robinette's themselves. To top it all off, if you bring you glasses back next time, the tasting is on the house.
Apple orchards aren't exactly winter friendly, so go visit before it's too late.
