Looking for a little Good Cheer to start the holidays off on a happy note? Come join us and discover what Michigan has to offer! We'll be taking a scenic tour of several wineries along SW Michigan's Wine Trail by motorcoach -- equipped with a restroom!
We will meet downtown Chicago at 9:50 a.m. at the bus pull-up at the corner of Madison and Canal . The wine tasting will begin around 1:00p.m. (MI time). We estimate we'll arrive back in Chicago at 8:00pm (Chicago time).
Currently the itinery includes stopping at the following places along the Trail: [ we might delete 1 or 2 ]
Contessa Wine Cellars
St. Julian Winery
Black Star Farms
Tabor Hill Winery
And last, but NOT least...
Round Barn Winery & Distillery
This sampling reflects a good overview of what this area has to offer. Besides fabulous wine, this should also be quite a scenic tour so don't forget your cameras!
