Featured Winery of the Week: Lewis Lakes Vineyards

Resting below Lake Michelle, Lewis Lakes Vineyards is owned by Bill and Michelle Lewis. The vineyards were planted to pay forward the determination and perseverance of Napa Valley winemakers. Inspired by the generous spirit of these winemakers, Bill and Michelle Lewis planted the first vines in 2007.

Officially opened in September 2013, the winery is located in Central Alabama. There is no doubt Bill and Michelle would prefer to be nowhere but Alabama. The winery’s motto illustrates their commitment to their great state: “Use the resources in Alabama to keep the resources in Alabama.” As a result, the winery is a staple of the community; being part of the Alabama wine trail, Lewis Lakes Vineyards helps support the local economy through tourism.

Ten years after its inception, the vines of Lewis Lakes Vineyards produce on average seventy to eighty-five pounds of grapes per season. The winery is a beautiful place anytime of year; In years to come, Lewis Lakes Vineyards will be a classic example of southern hospitality and great wine.
