3 North Vines was founded by Nathan and Kristi in 2007, grapes planted in 2008, and opened its doors in 2014.  The couple met at MSU and formed a bond over a wine tasting class. After that their love of each other and wine continued to grow. Nate and Kristi married, landed jobs and soon realized something was missing, and that was working for something more than a pay check. They turned their hobby of making wine into a dream come true in 2007 when they literally bought the farm. They grew their business and their family, and continue to live on the vineyard today.
