2013 Michigan Wine Magazine Now Available


The new edition of the popular Michigan Wine Country magazine is now available, kicking off “Michigan Wine Month” and marking the beginning of the 2013 touring season. It is an indispensable guide for touring Michigan’s 101 wineries.

The 2013 Michigan Wine Country magazine features the latest news and information on Michigan’s world-class wines and wineries — including 11 new wineries — plus maps, activities and events.

The magazine offers a list of winemakers’ favorites and the stories behind some of the unusual buildings that house winery tasting rooms. Readers will also find information on what’s new at the wineries and tips for pedaling their way along their favorite Michigan wine trail.
