TOUR DETAILS

We will start with a two-hour scenic drive through M-22 road stopping at a number of scenic look-outs to admire the views.

Then on to the three wineries for sampling.

Wine Tour & Sightseeing

There are also wines made from fermenting other fruits or cereals, whose names often specify their base, with some having specific names.

There is a right and wrong way to hold a wine glass. Wine glasses should always be held by the stem and not the bowl because the heat of the hand will raise the temperature of the wine.

European wines are named after their geographic locations (e.g., Chassagne-Montrachet Morgeot and Bordeaux) while non-European wines (e.g., Pinot Noir and Merlot) are named after different grape varieties.

One ton of grapes makes about 60 cases of wine, or 720 bottles. One bottle of wine contains about 2.8 pounds of grapes.
