Today’s Notable Michigan book is From the Vine: Exploring Michigan Wineries by Sharon Kegerreis and Lorri Hathaway published by the Ann Arbor Media Group. The 192 page, coffee table book does a great job of taking both those new to Michigan wines and those who know a lot about them closer to the wineries and vintners with engaging writing and beautiful photography. From the publisher’s site:
It’s time to take another look at Michigan wine. Fifty wineries stretching throughout every corner of our mitten state and into the Upper Peninsula are producing very dry to very sweet wines, many of which are beating wines from renowned wine regions such as California and New York, in national and international competitions, year after year. The authors traveled Michigan to meet the hard-working winemakers and sipped the offerings in the vineyards and tasting rooms. Not only for the wine connoisseur, this book is the perfect way to discover the unique wineries and wines using insider information and travel information.
