Northern Michigan Wines: We think George Gershwin's lyric said it best, "Summertime, And the livin' is easy…" Summertime has it's own soundtrack and so do M.Lawrence wines. Here are the summer music pairings that Mike Laing, winemaker for M.Lawrence sparking wines, has put together.

US | music by Johnny Clegg | grilled peaches with ricotta, maybe some prosciutto.

Sex | music by Justin Timberlake | grilled salmon caesar salad.

Redd | music by Ray Charles | stinky cheeses and sweet cherries.

Sandpiper | music by Old Crow Medicine Show | baked brie pastry with fruit compote.

Green | music by Poolside | grilled fish tacos with spicy mango salsa.

Wet | music by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros | your favorite burger (veg, turkey, etc…)

Fizz | music by Muddy Waters | grilled cajun shrimp with spicy rice and beans.

Detroit | music by De La Soul | angel food cake with fresh peaches and strawberries.
