Round Barn Winery, Distillery & Brewery
Producing wines, fruit 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, Distillery & Brewery produces red, white, fruit, dessert and sparkling wines, microbrews, and traditional rum, bourbon, and grape-based vodka bearing the DiVine logo. The Moersch family invites visitors to tour the barn and sample the potent potions, with wine tastings taking place in the Round Barn and beer available in the post-and-beam barn. Just a few miles down the road, Round Barn's new Brewery & Public House offers 20 taps of their unique beers, wines, and hand-crafted DiVine cocktails, as well as beer and wine flights and a full menu that highlights locally-sourced ingredients.
What some people are buzzing about:
“I believe beer tasting is only on the weekends but call ahead and see to make sure! ”
“Absolutely loved this place! The public house about five miles up the road has delicious food and more beer options.”
“Be prepared for lots of fun, and no one rushes you through the tastings. ”
