One of the things that I have really enjoyed over the last few months has been getting to know the wines of some of the less common wine growing regions. Thanks to my friends Shannon and Cortney Casey from the Michigan By The Bottle blog, I have had the pleasure of trying several wines from Michigan recently. The Casey's are great ambassadors for Michigan wine, and have put together a great series of events called, Tweet & Taste Michigan. The next tasting, which takes place tomorrow (June 7th) at 8:00pm Eastern, will feature the wines of wineries from the Old Mission Peninsula. Cortney orchestrated a great intro video that plays on the "Mission" theme.
The tasting will consist of the following wines -
Lads 2009 Pinot Grigio
Star Farms Sirius Cherry Dessert Wine
Harbor Vineyards 2006 2896 Langley (Meritage)
Chantal 2009 Pinot Grigio
Grand Traverse 2008 Ship of Fools
Estate 2007 Signature Red
Cellars – 2006 Gewurztraminer
