The NCMC Foundation will celebrate northern Michigan wines at the 4th annual Winning Wines of Northern Michigan Wine Tasting and Competition on Wednesday, May 13. The tasting and competition will be held in the Iron Horse Café in the Student Center on North Central’s Petoskey campus and will raise awareness of our area wines, wineries and viticulture programs. The event will also raise money for North Central’s Student Emergency Fund established to help students deal with financial challenges that impede their ability to complete their coursework. The event will consist of a wine competition from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and a tasting from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Area wineries will host tasting tables, and the College will provide excellent hors d’oeuvres. The judges will award prizes to the winning vintners. There will also be a silent auction of unique gifts. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. To purchase tickets, call Sharmon Dulaney in the Foundation office at 231-439-6218.
