Little did we realize that we lived so close to an official wine trail in Michigan. To be exact, the closest stop on The Lake Michigan Shore Wine Trail is exactly 15 minutes from our house according to Google Maps. The entirety of the LMSWT consists of 20 wineries and sprawls over an approximate 90mi radius, while the greatest concentration of these unique wineries rests within a much smaller 5 mi radius. The best part about exploring this wine trail? You’re only about 10 minutes from the lake shore most of the time. Also in this region is a much less “official” beer trail which we plan to begin documenting this coming winter.
