Start Planning Your Michigan Wine Tour

The new edition of the popular Michigan Wine Country magazine is now available. The publication is an indispensable touring guide for Michigan’s 127 wineries and provides a behind-the-scenes look at what’s new in the state’s wine industry.

The 2017 magazine features the latest information on Michigan’s world-class wines and wineries, plus maps, activities and events. Features of the magazine include an introduction to Michigan’s women winemakers, an explanation of what makes Michigan’s viticulture regions unique, and exciting activities to pair with the wine tour experience.

Michigan wineries welcome more than 2 million visitors each year, and Michigan Wine Country magazine plays an important role in bolstering wine tourism across the state. This guide is released just ahead of Michigan Wine Month (May), to prepare for the popular touring season.

Pick up a complimentary copy at any Michigan winery or Travel Michigan Welcome Center. To request a copy, visitwww.michiganwines.com or contact the Michigan Grape and Wine Industry Council at 517-284-5736. Michigan Wine Country is also available online in a digital format.
