Visit Michigan’s Lower Peninsula for a Wine Festival

One of many pleasurable places to visit in the US is Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. We’ve visited the area three times and each time discover new to us features that we had missed before. On August 13, the Leelanau Wine, Food & Music Festival takes place featuring 16 wineries, a hard cider facility and a brewery. […]

Black Star Farms, a Winery Destination, Helps the Local Community

I’m always interested in the ways wineries benefit their communities.

I’m sure other businesses get some extra business from those staying for the night, very likely purchasing items from other shops in the area. After […]

The Riesling wines from Michigan tend to have a hint of minerality on them. […]

Currently the state has four wine trails including Leelanau Peninsula Vintners Trail, Wineries of Old […]

Whether you are interested in special wine prices or special events, you will want to check out these participating wineries. We visited several of these wineries in January 2008 and enjoyed the experience. They […]

Ice Chilling Temperatures in the Vineyard

Last week as we visited wineries in the Northern Neck area of Virginia, ice-chilling winds buffeted us as we walked to vineyards. Even with the green foliage long past gone, the architecture of the vines is a statement of hope and a photographic opportunity. However, the mind numbing temperatures of 5 degrees Fahrenheit brought up […]
