Master sommelier Claudia Tyagi and George Heritier, co-founder Gang of Pour, were two of the wine experts who came North to tour and taste in Leelanau County wineries. We caught up with them at both Bel Lago and Chateau Fontaine and asked about Michigan’s role in the world of wine.

Tyagi, a consultant and frequent judge at wine tasting competitions, shares her thoughts on the role Michigan’s wine and wineries can play in the world. Standing amongst the gorgeous landscapes of Leelanau County wineries, she speaks to the power of combining spectacular landscapes, beautiful wineries and great wine.
