States like California are known for their wine, but did you know Michigan is becoming a contender too?
"It's a really popular thing to do," says Mike Merchant. He's been the winemaker for Tabor Hill, a Buchanan, Michigan winery for over 25 years. When he got his start, the winery was one of only two in the state.
"Really, the mentality at the time, in the early 80's, was competing for the Chicagoan driving through Michigan with $20 dollars to spend."
Today, there are several wineries in southwest Michigan. The area has become a hotspot for tourists. "Now, you can spend a weekend here and still not see all the wineries, not to mention all the rest of the tourist stuff."
