Meet The C-Murphs!
Hello fellow BHV lovers! We are Colin and Christine Murphy, our friends (including you all!) call us the C-Murphs. We have two dogs, Caribou and Cricket, who are also big fans of #DogsofBHV and hanging out with us at the winery. We just celebrated our 15 year wedding anniversary (5.1.05), in quarantine with our favorite bubbly from BHV. We spend much of our time traveling for work and vacations, but outside of that, we split our time between Canton, Michigan and our cottage on Old Mission Peninsula. We purchased the property on Old Mission in anticipation of retirement, but now slowly starting to spend more time there each year. It is our happy place! Not to mention BHV is the closest winery, which was recommended from the previous owner and we fell in love with it immediately. It has now been over five years as BHV wine club members and going strong. Christine’s go to favorites at BHV include the 2896 Brut Rosé and the Langley. Colin’s go to favorites at BHV include the Riesling Block II and blueberry cider. You can typically find us at BHV out on the patio with our dogs, glasses of wine, and whitefish pate.
Old Mission was an easy decision for a place for a second home. Colin graduated from Traverse City Central High School in 1995 and still has family and friends in town. Between the outdoor trail activities with our dogs, fabulous wine and foodie options, it’s our little slice of paradise!
Some of our favorite “Up North” memories are at BHV – including celebrating Colin’s 40th birthday in the BHV pavilion overlooking a lovely sunset, with Boathouse catering – make sure to get the risotto! Although this summer has been a bit different with Covid, we feel safe and sound in our Adirondack chairs at BHV. We love our BHV family and catching up like old times, hope to see you all back soon! Cheers! ~ The C-Murphs
We love you, Colin and Christine! Thank you for being such an important part of our BHV family.
2018 Otis WHite Wine
Otis was the vineyard's official greeter. His loyalty to us all made him worthy of his own label! This semi-dry wine is light, crisp and delightful, and can be enjoyed on its own or with lighter fare.
Crisp, bright acidity provides the perfect counterpoint to the notes of soft golden apple and ripe Bosc pear.
Enjoy the bright cherry and berry flavors from the fruit, complemented by the fresh cedar and cocoa notes from the quality of the French Oak barrels.

October 2nd - Last day to customize your order or to switch from ship to pick up.
