More than 30 wineries featured at the Michigan Wine and Beer FestShare
The Michigan Wine and Beer Fest presented by Experience Jackson is a must visit to sample wines from around the state of Michigan.
More than 30 award-winning wineries from across the state will be on hand showcasing over 100 varieties of wine including Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet and others.
The Michigan Wine and Beer Fest presented by Experience Jackson is one of the only events that you can taste and buy wine from all over the state at one place. The on-site retail store makes it easy for you to take home your favorite wine or beer to share with family and friends.
With about a month until the sixth annual event on May 9, the impressive list of wineries continues to grow every day.
The Michigan Wine and Beer Fest presented by Experience Jackson is a celebration of Michigan wine, beer, hard ciders, distilleries and food – all at Michigan International Speedway, NASCAR’s fastest racetrack.
Guests can sample the latest from such Michigan wineries as Burgdorf’s Winery, Chateau Chantal, Round Barn Winery or St. Julian Wine Company. You can find the full list of wineries here: http://bit.ly/RfTuoo
After selecting those favorite wines, guests can purchase a bottle or a case of wine in the on-site retail store to take home.
Michigan breweries and food vendors will also be featured, making the Michigan Wine and Beer Fest presented by Experience Jackson a Pure Michigan event. New in 2015, hard cider and distilleries will also be featured.
“We are really excited about the responses we’ve gotten from the wineries,” MIS President Roger Curtis said. “Michigan wine is a celebration of this state, and word is spreading about how enjoyable the previous festivals have been. In recent years, Michigan has seen a growth of craft beers and we have breweries added daily to enhance the event. Being able to taste fantastic wines from all over the state, getting personal service from the vintners and then having the option to purchase those wines in our retail store truly makes this a must-attend event.”
Curtis notes the Michigan Wine and Beer Fest presented by Experience Jackson kicks off summer at MIS and is conveniently situated in the southeast corner of the state, a growing area for wine enthusiasts.
This event will once again feature the tastes and toasts of Michigan wineries, Michigan breweries, Michigan distilleries and Michigan eateries in a unique setting — the state’s only NASCAR Sprint Cup racetrack and the fastest track on the circuit.
Guests may sample wines, beer and food from Michigan vendors, and buy their favorite wines by the bottle or case. The festival’s on-site retail store will have select wines and beer available for purchase at the event. In addition to wine and beer sampling, seminars covering wine, food and other topics of interest will be held throughout the venue. Live entertainment throughout the day will also be featured.
The craft beer craze is sweeping Michigan, making the state the fifth in the nation in the number of breweries, microbreweries and brewpubs. The Michigan Wine and Beer Fest is a great place to try all the seasonal beers that this state offers.
And you can even purchase your favorite Michigan craft beers and wines in the retail store. MIS is one of only a handful of festivals in the state that has a retail store on site.
