April was Michigan Wine Month, which culminated with the annual Michigan Wine Showcase at the Rattlesnake Club in Detroit.
Now I could wax poetically about lemon grass noses and tastes of melon, leather, tobacco and (my favorite descriptor) barnyard. But I won’t. What I will do is point you in the direction of some incredible wine made in our own state, which you should really run out and purchase. Now. Right now.
Michigan Wine Month is a time to highlight and enjoy the growing selection of locally produced wine, and to recognize the industry’s significant contribution to our economy. With more than 2,000 acres devoted to growing wine grapes, our state’s 92 commercial wineries produce more than 1 million gallons of wine annually. These wineries attract more than 1 million visitors and contribute $300 million annually to Michigan’s economy.
Great wrap-up from MBTB Fan Dave Moss
