Plan A Michigan Wine Tour

The tasting room of the Garden Bay Winery in Munising, in the Upper Peninsula near the Lake Superior shore

Michigan’s wine scene is growing not only in number of wineries but in respect for the beverages they’re crafting and the enjoyable experience of visiting vineyards and wine makers on several trails across the state.

Plan now to attend the Memorial Weekend Wine & Art Fair May 26-27 at Lemon Creek Winery in Berrien Springs, or spend a night at one of the winery Bed & Breakfasts in the Traverse City area, or enjoy music on the dock at Manistique’s Mackinaw Trail Winery in the Upper Peninsula.

To get you started see a story I wrote for Chicago Sun-Times that appeared in April, during Michigan Wine Month.




  1. I’ve been searching specifically for a western michigan (read: Muskegon, Mason, Oceana, Newaygo Counties primarily) list of wineries…ideally with tasting times and such. Know of anything?
