The past two years, we've had the incredible opportunity to tag along on trips to Champagne, France (2016), and Bordeaux, France (2017), with our buddy Lorenzo Lizarralde, owner and winemaker at Chateau Aeronautique and a commercial pilot (not to mention international man of mystery). Lorenzo embarks on these trips to learn more about Old World-winemaking and apply it toward his own craft. This year, we're excited to be heading a bit farther south: to Italy! Along with Lisa and Bill Hendricks, two grape growers with whom Lorenzo works closely, we'll be heading to Rome, then spending time in the Tuscany... Continue reading

I can see them doing it. At our tasting rooms, the white section of the menu is arranged by sweetness level, and subdivided into “Dry,” “Semi-Dry,” and “Sweet.” Guests’ eyes begin moving down the column, taking in the dry whites ... and then skip directly over the semi-dry section to peruse the sweets. It’s almost as if there’s a black hole in the middle of the menu. via HourDetroit.com In her March Hour Detroit Michigan wine blog, Cort explores the often underappreciated world of semi-dry whites ...

It was just about 45 years ago that I met Bernie Rink. I had recently graduated from college, and was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. Bernie was the librarian at NMC, growing grapes on his small sand hill farm on the east side of Lake Leelanau in Leelanau County and making wine in his basement. With his wife, Suzanne, they were raising five boys. via Record-Eagle.com L. Mawby owner/winemaker Larry Mawby reflects on lessons learned from Boskydel owner/winemaker Bernie Rink, a pioneer of grape-growing and winemaking in Northern Michigan. Continue reading
