LMC Alum and Owner of Hickory Creek Winery brings Old World Winemaking to SW Michigan

"Founded in 2006, Hickory Creek Winery just celebrated its first year under the ownership and viticulture leadership of Adam McBride. It had started under an ownership team of three partners, transitioned to different owners in 2012 and finally was acquired by McBride in 2017.

"McBride’s journey into the world of wine started during his time living in the Mosel Valley in Germany; his place overlooked a Riesling vineyard, and he spent two years immersed in the regional wine culture. After eight years in the Air Force and a career in the Michigan manufacturing industry, he pursued formal wine education through Napa Valley Wine Academy and purchased the winery. He’s currently a second-year student in the wine and viticulture technology program at Lake Michigan College Benton Harbor."
