Michigan Wine Varieties
Interestingly, Michigan not only specializes in a wide variety of grape wines but also cultivates cherry wine which is generally sweeter than grape fruit. The most common types of grape harvested throughout Michigan include the Cabernet Franc, Pinot Blanc, Concord, and Chancellor amongst many other breeds. Michigan’s unique climate allows wine to blossom to its true potential throughout the year, which results in an excellent harvest season for wineries in Michigan.
