When Michigan wines are the topic of conversation, chances are the words “St. Julian” will soon be a part of the discussion. For four generations spanning nearly 100 years, the name St. Julian has been synonymous with Michigan wine. The family takes its commitment to consistent quality across a wide variety of winemaking styles very seriously, starting with the fruit. via DailyTribune.com Nice article on St. Julian!

Ask the average Michigander about Marquette, and he’ll likely reference a city in the Upper Peninsula. Ask a wine-loving Michigander, and the answer may be very different. Marquette — a cold-hardy hybrid grape developed at the University of Minnesota and introduced in 2006 — is on the rise in Michigan, thanks to its tolerance for the state’s often fickle weather. via HourDetroit.com In her October Hour Detroit Michigan wine blog, Cort explores a grape that's gaining traction in Michigan: the cold-hardy hybrid, Marquette.

I’m not good at advance planning (just ask my editor!) but the first three wines in this week’s list would be ideal for Thanksgiving. The two from Left Foot Charley — one of my favorite wineries — have two strikes against them: They are unfamiliar grapes and they come from an unfamiliar region. They are also new to the market, so don’t be shy about asking your favorite retailer to order them. And stock up for the holiday feast. via WashingtonPost.com Left Foot Charley gets a MAJOR shoutout in this Washington Post article! Continue reading

The land itself is a sine wave here near the tip of the Old Mission Peninsula, dipping and rolling before it flatlines into the watery plane of East Grand Traverse Bay. Coming around the last bend, the curves give way to a stunning hilltop geometry. via MyNorth.com Do you know the story behind 2 Lads? Continue reading
