We went on a winter wine tasting adventure through Living Social today! Mr. F and I met our friends in River North and took a tour bus to Michigan for the day. Our first stop was St. Julian's winery in Union Pier, an hour and a half from Chicago. Our favorite was the dry riesling. B.R. RIESLING
Next door to St. Julian's winery is another winery and brewery, Round Barn! Our tour guide from Living Social gave us a complimentary wine, or pint glass, with tokens for tastings. After two wineries, we drove half an hour to Baroda, Michigan, where we had lunch at Gravity winery.They have a very cute four-legged greeter named, Oliver. Our last stop of the day was Lemon Creek Winery! They also had friendly winery dogs! We enjoyed the ice wine the most! In general, we decided Michigan's climate grows great riesling and Gewurztraminer grapes but, not much else. Fortunately, we had such a wonderful time with our friends that it didn't matter!
