Michigan Provides Plenty

Michigan is a state unlike any other. Two magical peninsulas are surrounded by the beloved Great Lakes - the world's largest supply of fresh water.

#MIWineAdventure Pairing Ideas Around the State

Bay View Wine Trail

  • The gales of November often wash Petoskey stones onto the beach of Petoskey State Park, great for winter time rock hunting!
  • Oden Fish Hatchery Visitor Center is an all ages experience, with a show pond and an in-river viewing chamber that is ever-changing. The Visitor Center closes Oct. 31, but the hatchery does offer tours year-round.


Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail

  • Take a hike around and tour the interior of the Felt Estate located next to Saugatuck Dunes, especially during their holiday special events.
  • Enjoy a crisp, winter sunset over Lake Michigan after a short hike up the trail at Warren Woods.


Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail and Wineries of Old Mission Peninsula

  • Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore is not to be missed!
  • Cross Country skiers should make a plan to ski the infamous Vasa trail to glide in the path of ski legends who have competed in the International race with the same name.
  • Fat Tire biking is big fun in Traverse City. Try the 9-mile winter sports single track!


Southeast Michigan Pioneer Wine Trail

  • Explore Cambridge Junction and Walker Tavern for a step back in history.
