As it turns out, the Mitten State has more to offer than lakes, apples, and college football – Michigan is also home to several gorgeous wineries!! This episode we recount Sarah’s recent trip to Michigan Wine Country, which was a surprising first for this Michigander. Listen in to learn about the abundance of fruit – for vino and otherwise – that make up Michigan’s coastline, and even more importantly, how does the wine taste??!! Find out with us as we sip on a Gewurztraminer from Old Mission Peninsula, MI (who knew?!)

This invisible line runs halfway between the equator and the North Pole, where some of the best wines of the world are grown.
