We've hit the road -- Anne, Holly, and I are off for the Michigan Wine Council annual meeting at Crystal Mountain/Thompsonville. And on the way we're stopping off for a little wine tasting.
It's great to look at the world from the other side of the tasting bar for a change. An educational experience that every winery owner should do on a regular basis.
We visited three wineries on the Leelanau Peninsula yesterday afternoon and will stop at several on the Old Mission Peninsula today. It's great to see what others are doing.
Of course we'll always look at wineries with a different eye than the general public. It's the "busman's holiday" perspective. But that doesn't keep it from being a fun way to spend a day. And I know we'll come back to Jackson at the end of the week with lots of new ideas.
