Cody Kresta is a small family-run farm winery located on 20 acres of land in the Lake Michigan Shore Appellation in Mattawan, Michigan. The owners, David and Mary Lou, share two great passions – crafting distinctive southwestern Michigan wines and living in harmony with the land they love.
David and Mary Lou first met on their property thirty years ago at a dance in the homestead's 1882 vintage barn. They've devoted years to planting several acres of pecans, chestnuts and walnuts, and of course the vineyards that supply the grapes to make its low-volume, high quality wines. They've directed particular attention to establishing food and habitat for birds and wildlife and to developing a homestead that is enjoyable for family, friends, and visitors to spend their time.
David, (who is also a building contractor) designed and built the tasting room and facilities from the property's heritage barns.
