Long story short, some 25 years later, I finally got around to some of the Leelanau Peninsula, Old Mission Peninsula, and Southwest Michigan wineries this week. Wow! The scenery, the people, and the wines are worth the trip.
Cool climate be damned! These wines are serious. Great Riesling, Pinot Gris/ Grigio, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir.
What a great place for some Remond Barrels, Carlsen Equipment, Waukeshas, etc. The wineries we visited are keen to making quality wines and will probably just get better as they go.
I just wanted to say thank you to all you Michigan winemakers who took the time to make Sean Turner and me feel welcome.
See you on the Crushpad!
