With a moderate acid backbone, supple texture and complex, exotic tropical fruit and citrus notes, Northern Michigan pinot blanc wines are a wholly delicious springtime drink. Pair these toothsome local examples with simple fish preparations, young cheeses, or sip them solo.

These Northern Michigan wines were originally featured in the April 2016 issue of Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine.
