Double Gold Glory

This year’s 40th annual Michigan Wine Competition was held in East Lansing this past week, and it was an event to remember! 

Each year, wineries from around the state of Michigan gather to celebrate the fruits of their labor. The main goal of the Michigan Wine Competition is to provide feedback to grape growers and winemakers so that they can continue to improve the quality of Michigan’s grapes. Keeping this goal in mind, each wine in the competition is considered by a panel of four judges, all selected based on their first-hand knowledge of their ability to appreciate all there is to do with Michigan wine. We are pleased to announce that six WOMP wineries participated and received recognition:
