Day: June 1, 2011
Happy June everyone! I’ve been out of commission for a couple of weeks cuz my computer had the flu (stupid spy ware, & thanx to Jeremy with a “y” for fixing my laptop). But I came across this and I thought I’d share this great article about Michigan’s Wine Country. Not too shabs to get a right up in Food & Wine magazine! Much in the same way that California wines proved that great wine doesn’t have to be made in France, Michigan wines show that great American wines don’t need to be made in California. I actually made it up to some of the wineries that they mention in the article like L. Mawby and Black Star Farms. Hope to make it up to the Old Mission soon and check out some of those wineries.
This is an aside, but if you want to learn more about the whole uprising of the California wines against the European elite, check out the movie Bottleshock. Sure, you can learn about it in books and stuff, but you know what I like about the movie? — no reading!!! It stars Alan Rickman, who most people will recognize as Professor Snape of Harry Potter fame. . . or the bad guy from the first Die Hard movie. Bill Pullman’s in it, too, plus the new Captain Kirk himself, Chris Pine.
