Southern Michigan might not yet be synonymous with “wine country,” but the new, local wineries such as White Pine Winery and Vineyards are doing their part to change that. White Pine’s enthusiastic approach to winemaking is helping the region to gain a reputation, and their new tasting room in beautiful downtown St. Joseph now provides a comfortable and convenient place to sample the best wines Southern Michigan has to offer!
White Pine, part of the Lake Michigan Shores Appellation, is especially proud of their Pinot Grigio and Reserve Riesling wines, which seem well suited to the region. White Pine offers this enticing note on the Reserve Riesling:
“Peaches, mango and honeysuckle define this wine. The aroma’s leap from the glass and are followed by juicy, mouth-watering flavors supported by crisp acidity and a hint of minerals. Great with on its own or with spicy foods, Asian and fusion cuisine. A classic from our own backyard!”
Sounds delicious! And for a real treat, try a classic Icewine dessert wine from White Pine:
“Intense aromas and flavors of honey, pineapple and apricot dance in an amber liquid more like nectar than wine. This is dessert in a glass that you want to savor sip, by sip. An ethereal experience you won’t forget!”
Try one of these, or one of White Pine’s many other varietals and blends, and do so in scenic downtown St. Joseph. The small, lakefront town offers a cozy winter getaway as well as a wonderful summer vacation destination, and is the perfect location for to introduce yourself to the wines of the Lake Michigan Shores Appellation.
