    Take the Makers Trail toward Coloma to check out another great winery in Southwest Michigan, Karma Vista Winery! A beautiful landscape of rolling vineyards that you see as you walk into the tasting room of this winery that is celebrating their 17th year! The team at Karma Vista are taking a much needed winter break but you need to mark your calendars to check out this place out in the Spring.

    Free Run Cellars: Meet The Makers Season 3 Episode 1

    Free Run Cellars: Meet The Makers Season 3 Episode 1

    As I head out on another journey along the Maker's Trail I find myself at Free Run Cellars in Berrien Springs. Tucked back off the road behind the trees you'll find this quaint tasting room that is perfect for stopping by for a quick tasting with friends. It's also a great place for maybe having a meeting or even hosting a holiday party, but most importantly it is a perfect place to have a great glass of wine. The guy behind that great glass is the winemaker Brian Carlson! This was a wonderful conversation that I hope you enjoy as much as we did! Cheers!

    Lehman Farmhouse: Meet the Makers, Season 2 Episode 2

    In the little town of Buchanan, Michigan you'll find one of the coolest places on the Makers Trail, Lehman's Farmhouse. What used to be an old industrial building for Clark Manufacturing is now getting new life thanks to Steve Lecklider. He has transformed a building that had been sitting dormant for a number of years and has created a building that houses a taproom, gift shop and small and medium event spaces. Steve is also hard at work brewing beer, spirits, wine and anything else he can dream up. Jonny had a chance to sit down with Steve and chat about how this all came to be.



    Listen to the podcast and when you are done, plan your trip to Lehman's Farmhouse by going to MakersTrail.org
