Michigan's breathtaking views provide more than eye candy. The state's unique landscape is perfect for growing a variety of grapes and our collection of talented winemakers are taking full advantage. Each year, entries into the Michigan Wine Competition are raising the bar.

In 2015, judges awarded the top Best of Class awards to eight wines from a group of 63 gold medal winners, including 14 double gold.

Christopher Cook, competition superintendent, described the Best of Class round for Dry Red wines as "one of the best flights of dry red wines that I have tasted in any competition this year."
