  • Vineyards

     In 1973 we planted our first vines, and established our vineyards at the Elm Valley location in 1976. These vineyards have been increased until today the property is fully planted with about 20 acres of vines. Varieties we grow include pinot noir, vignoles, pinot gris, regent, riesling, chardonnay and pinot meunier. We also purchase significant amounts of chardonnay and pinot noir from other growers here on the Leelanau Peninsula for our L.Mawby wines. We source for M.Lawrence from Leelanau Peninsula, southwest Michigan and the west coast.

  • Winemakers

     Larry Mawby has been making our L.Mawby traditional method sparkling wines since our first sparkling winemaking in 1984. Since 2010, Mike Laing has been responsible for the M. Lawrence cuve close method sparkling wines.

  • MAWBYman

    Look for MAWBYman, appearing randomly anywhere wine drinkers gather. MAWBYman, dapper and silent, hands out swag, without swagger. Note the tie. And the hat. Exclusively MAWBYman. Grin available separately, for all lovers of MAWBYness.

    Soil Speaking [Place Talk], Terroir poetry

    Fine traditional method sparkling wines, classically styled, produced entirely from grapes grown on the Leelanau Peninsula. These wines express the character of this special place, the care of the people tending the vines, and the purity of intent of those guiding the transformation of grape to sparkling wine. 

  • M.Lawrence

    Grape Singing [Fruit Songs], Flavor riffs

    Cuve Close method sparkling wines produced entirely from grapes grown on planet earth. Singing with joy, making music of the grape, pleasure bubbling out of the wine, finding it’s place in your heart. 

  • Cider

    Our first sparkling cider BRIGHT made from 100% Leelanau County apples and refreshment in a glass. Not pictured: our other ciders Wild and Prime. All are available online and in our tasting room. 

  • Accoutrements

    All the special stuff you need to enjoy our wines – clothes to wear, tools for opening and resealing bottles. Share your MAWBYness to friends and the rest of the world.


  • Personal Imprint & Custom Labels

    Two types of customized labels can be applied to any of our wines.

    Personal Imprint
    Imprint a personal message of up to four lines of text [in a choice of three fonts, example above shows Garamond Italic] in black on the front of either of our L. Mawby or M. Lawrence wine label bases. This service costs $50, just $50 plus the cost of the wine, for anything from one case to several thousand [limited to some of our wines, not every wine]. This service typically takes 2 weeks, please inquire if you require faster turnaround. Click Imprint button to go to our on-line store to place an order for your personal imprint.

    Custom Labels
    Several of our wines can be custom labeled. This service is more costly than the personal imprint service, but allows you to do full color labels with photos, etc. Minimum cost is $80, which provides labels for up to 10 cases of wine. Click CUSTOM for more information.
