    "My husband and I were in today and wanted to tell you what a great experience we had. You were so helpful and took the time to talk with us. (The wine is amazing too). We will definately be back and will tell others about it. Keep up what you are doing as it is working!"

  3. Bill and Penny Nowacki
    "I wanted to get some wine for our friends as a gift. Bill suggested we stop at the winery since we were in the area. I told him I'd rather go to The Rusty Pelican. You can go anywhere and get wine. But here you know you will get professional advice and suggestions to get the wine you want, not just the wine they sell."

    "Open house went great. Everyone enjoyed the wine selections; I'm a fan of the drier orange wine. Perfect amount of wine too. We had plenty for all who wanted to enjoy. And, it was definitely better (tasting and image) than dispensing wine from a box. LOL Thank you for your help and expertise."
You can take our word for it but we'd rather you hear it from our customers.
"Traditionally, our fave way to savor summer is with northern Michigan-made wine. But if you’re looking to sip something a little more southern, you’ll find that, too, at Gaylord’s Rusty Pelican Wine Shop.  Owners Mike and Cassie Meredith — both Michigan natives — round out their inventory of Michigan wines with a little something for the snowbird set: vino that hails from Florida."
