Wine Tasting with
Jim Lester of Wyncroft/Marland Winery this Saturday, November 26 from
1-4 pm at Wine Sellers
We are honored to have Jim Lester of Wyncroft/Marland Winery at Wine Sellers this Saturday, November 29 from 1-4 pm. Jim is located here in Allegan County and makes some of the best wines that Michigan has to offer.
Wyncroft is a family-owned estate winery founded in 1998, located in the glacial moraine hills of southwest Michigan. Our proximity to Lake Michigan provides a unique micro-climate, perfect for growing many of the noble vinifera grape varieties from which the world’s greatest wines are made.
Jim patterns his premium wines in this classical tradition, operating in the style of a tiny French garagiste winery. Wyncroft wines are single-vineyard designated, from low-yield estate vineyards in the Lake Michigan Shore and Fennville appellations. Jim Lester, winemaker and co-owner, has been growing vines and making wine in Michigan for more than 30 years.
We will be hosting a tasting several of Jim’s Wines, so please stop by between 1-4 to meet Jim and taste his terrific wines!
7:00PM – 8:30PM
$35 ( limited space available)

Wine Tasting: Allegan County vs. the World
Saugatuck Center for the Arts
May 3, 2016
7PM – 8:30
$25 | Guests must be at least 21 years
Get ready for an evening of fine wines from around the world … and Allegan County! Join award winning wine maker Jim Lester of Wyncroft and Marland Wines and Sommelier Michael Gustaitis from Wine Sellers of Saugatuck for a tasting of spectacular wines from your own backyard.
Allegan County sits in the middle of Michigan’s lush “fruit belt” which boasts rich, complex soil and temperate growing conditions (thanks to Lake Michigan’s moderating forces). The result is a special blend of environmental forces that make Allegan County the #1 agricultural producing county in the state and Michigan the nation’s third largest fruit producer.
Does this “perfect storm” of environmental factors extend to area vineyards? Jim and Mike say “absolutely!” and will let you taste for yourself. They’ll pour samples of Wyncroft and Marland wines made from grapes grown in vineyards in Allegan County compare them to samples from the best wines of the world. The result? You may be surprised to learn that wines of this caliber are being grown and vinified so close to Saugatuck/Douglas!
Jim Lester, winemaker and co-owner at Wyncroft Wines, has been growing vines and making wine in Michigan for more than 30 years. He patterns Wyncroft’s super-premium wines in a classical tradition, operating in the style of a tiny French garagiste winery.

Intriguing Conversations – Wine Tasting
Join us for this Intriguing Conversation focused on wine! Experience the excitement of a blind-tasting with two expert sommeliers: Jim Lester, owner of Wyncroft and Marland Estate Wines and myself, Mike Gustaitis, owner of Wine Sellers of Saugatuck.
Jim and I will present a robust grouping of white and reds, featuring Michigan labels and labels from around the world. Via a blind tasting, you’ll have the opportunity to compare and contrast varieties as you learn from these two masters. How do Michigan whites stack up against labels from France, Germany, or Italy? Can our reds compare to varietals Spain, Australia or Argentina?
Don’t miss this wonderful evening of delicious learning — timed perfectly to help you select wines for the holidays!

Saugatuck Center for the Arts Real to Reel: Somm
7:00 PM Somm Screening
$5 Members & Students/ $7 Non-Members
Join us from 6:00 – 7:00 PM as Mike Gustaitis, owner of Wine Sellers of Saugatuck, presents a tasting event that will set the stage for the film.
Gustaitis, who is a Level III Sommelier, will present a series of wines that guests will be able to “blind judge” and sample – just as sommelier candidates do. Once the blind folds come off, Gustaitis will share information on the wines, pairing suggestions, and how to become a more discerning wine lover. “Mike is looking forward to having fun with guests, doing some blind samplings and sharing his expertise,” said SCA Executive Director Kristin Armstrong. “We thought it would be great to pair up a “tasting” opportunity with the film for a really special experience at the Art Center.”
