A decade of sipping Michigan wines has made us huge aficionados, so it’s only natural to uncork Michigan Pinot Noir and Pinot Noir Rose’, Pinot Blanc and Grigio and Unoaked Chardonnay to complement regular BBQ feasts of grilled corn, whitefish, filets and a rainbow of garden vegetables. Still seeking your favorite summertime wine? This Saturday, the Traverse City Wine & Art Festival features many wines from Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas, fare from local restaurants and eclectic art from more than 60 artists. The festival is a fun evening and a one-stop tasting opportunity to find your favorite summertime wine.
Stop by the merchandising tent to say, “hi,” and, shameless plug here, pick up our newest book, The History of Michigan Wines. Sharon will be signing books from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m. (Proceeds benefit the Leelanau Conservancy.) Learn more about the festival here.
