About Us

Making a business successful is a team effort and this team makes it a great job to come to work to everyday. Wine production is overseen by owner, Tony Debevc with the assistance of wine maker Michael Harris. Day to day operations are overseen by owner Cindy Lindberg.

Kathleen Trebets is the on-site manager and works closely with assistant managers, Ryan Zalimeni and Lauren Merinar. The kitchen is managed by chef Kelly Palmiter and her assistant Becca Cerjan. In addition, there is an amazing staff of servers and many other wonderful employees that make it all happen.

Grand River Cellars was first established in 1976 known at that time as the Grand River Wine Company. During its first few years the focus was on wine production and the growing of quality vinifera grapes. The initial winery opened to the public in 1978 and grew in popularity over the next 20 years.
The owners, Bill & Carol Worthy, decided to sell the winery in 1998. In August of 2005, Madison Wine Cellars, Inc. purchased the winery from the former owners and began to develop what is now called Grand River Cellars.

Inside Grand River Cellars Winery & Restaurant you will be welcomed by a warm and inviting atmosphere that includes a beautiful fireplace, many hand-painted murals, and a large bar area for friends to gather. The winery offers a large variety of appetizers, grilled sandwiches, and a well-rounded dinner menu.
