Round Barn Winery, Distillery & Brewery
Producing wines, full-bodied beers, and a grape-based spirit, the Round Barn is as well-rounded as the Amish barn that anchors the winery. The striking structure wasn’t always the southwest Michigan property’s main landmark, however. Biology teacher–turned-winemaker Rick Moersch had been cultivating the land for five award-winning years when he came across the 1911 structure in Rochester, Indiana. Timber by timber, he and his crew dismantled the barn and moved it to Baroda by truck after realizing it wouldn’t fit in a plane’s overhead bin.
The round barn was a natural fit for the round copper-pot still where Moersch was beginning to distill European-style brandies from his grapes. After his sons Matthew and Christian returned from college, they helped further expand the winery’s scope. They launched a grape-based luxury vodka, DiVine, in 2006, and entered the beer brewing business the following year.
Today, Round Barn Winery, Brewery & Distillery produces red, white, dessert and sparkling wines, eight different brews, and traditional grape-based vodka, rum, and bourbon bearing the DiVine logo. The Moersch family invites visitors to tour the facilities and sample the potent potions at their two tasting rooms, with wine tastings taking place in the Round Barn and beer tastings in the post-and-beam barn.
