Our Roots

The roots of Tanglewood Winery go back three generations to the 1960’s when Gordon Wassink began Farming blueberries here in Holland, Michigan. Since then the farm has been passed from father to son, and has gained a reputation over the years for high quality fruit. It is this rich, locally grown fruit that is used in every bottle of Blue Silk, and what has made us into a successful Holland winery.

Tanglewood Winery is located in Holland, Michigan not far from the lakeshore. The soil is rich, and perfect for growing some of the best blueberries in the world. Blueberries are a fruit that reward patience, often taking 6 or more years to reach maturity. Wine also requires patience, a lesson that we have learned well over the fifty years we have spent in the blueberry industry. After crafting our recipe for years and maturing our wine until the peak of flavor, we are excited to bring this unique wine to Michigan. There is Michigan history in each bottle, making Blue Silk truly “What Michigan Tastes Like.”
