Green Bird Organic Cellars' Concord Rose | Food | Northern Express –

Au naturel is the name of the game at Green Bird Organic Cellars and Farm in Northport. Originally founded in 2005, its current owners, Tim and Betsy Hearin, purchased the property in 2019, which, they were surprised to find, came with its own vineyard. Situated on 15 stunning acres, Green Bird grows all its ingredients on site, making it Michigan’s only organic winery. Perhaps the most exclusive of its products is the micro-batched Concord Rosé. Made from sweet and juicy concord grapes grown just outside the tasting room, this hazy, blush-colored wine is completely bereft of added sugar or any extra “cellar magic.” Instead, it’s allowed to develop naturally, using only champagne yeast for fermentation. The result is a beautifully dry, low abv (8 percent) wine with a fruity, but not overly sweet palette. Pair a glass with cheese for the perfect spring snack—but it’s only available at the vineyard. 9825 E Engles Rd, Northport,
