Amazing Michigan Wineries A Short Drive Away That Are A Must Try
Such a good time and escape to go to a winery with friends and just relax if you love the grape as many of us do. When I lived in Vegas we went to The Francis Ford Coppola Winery a few times and it was the best wine I ever had and a weekend, truly amazing
I do highly recommend a trip to Napa's wineries. They are stunning and beautiful if you have the time. Keep in mind though there are some great wineries to visit right here in Michigan.
Attention Michigan wine lovers did you know like many of the world’s famous wine countries, Bordeaux in France and Italy’s Piedmont area are similar to Michigan’s Leelanau Peninsula. Another great way to try great-tasting and robust wine.
North of Traverse City, the Leelanau Peninsula is one of Michigan’s five American Viticultural Areas (AVAs). Lake Michigan’s “lake effect” environment supports growing classic vinifera grape varieties, including riesling, chardonnay, pinot noir, and cabernet franc. These grapes are hearty enough to withstand the sometimes harsh Michigan winters.
