Michigan Wineries

grapesI always enjoy a visit to the Grand Traverse Bay area. Every time I go there seems to be a new sight to see, as well as another interesting restaurant to try.

I find the lake front drives along the many scattered Michigan vineyards relaxing and enjoyable. The rolling hills and the well kept grapevines make for a picturesque and scenic drive.

Michigan has a growing number of vineyards; most seem to be located relatively close to the coastline of Lake Michigan. Every visit to the area seems to uncover a new vineyard. With that, a store, a tasting room, a bed and breakfast they join the growing list of Michigan tourist attractions.

Michigan is the fourth largest grape growing state in the United States. Most of the Michigan grapes are used for making grape juice, but a growing percentage are used to produce one of several types of Michigan Wine.

On my list of things to do this summer is to find a nice day and spend some time at a Michigan vineyard with my camera. I will share the results in another post.

There is something about the 45th parallel and the big lake that grapes like. There is something about the 45th parallel and Lake Michigan that I like too!

I have listed several of Michiganís Vineyards and Wineries. If you are not able to visit them in person, be sure to visit their website. There is a lot to be learned.

If you know of a vineyard or winery I missed , please let me know.

And, for your next dinner party, be sure to try a Michigan wine!
