The Dexter Cider Mill and our tasting room are open every year just during apple season — from late August through late November.
(The winery in Jackson is open year ’round.)
Every year as the summer winds down and the early apples are ripe, we open our tasting room inside the Dexter Cider Mill. The cider mill, located at 3685 Central Street, is the oldest continuously operating cider mill in Michigan.
Our cozy tasting room features the same tasting list as the winery in Jackson – you are welcome to visit, taste, and purchase any of our wines.
The cider mill is an annual draw for SE Michigan residents and visitors. They make the cider the same way they’ve always done, with an antique oak press using 3-5 varieties of locally grown apples. The result is a rich, complex, and delicious apple cider. Also for sale are freshly made treats such as donuts, apple bread, and caramel apples.
Normal Dexter tasting room hours: Friday & Saturday 11-4:30 (open ‘til 5:30 on Saturdays in October), Sunday 12-4:30
NOTE: The tasting room will only be open Saturday 11/15, Sunday 11/16, Saturday 11/22 and Sunday 11/23 for the close of the 2014 season. Saturday hours are 11 am – 5 pm, and Sundays are 12 pm – 5 pm.
