Michigan Wine Month 2020

By | Events | No Comments

May is Michigan Wine Month! This month is dedicated to celebrating the wine industry across the state. Did you know that Michigan is home to over 100 wineries? Each offers a unique variety of wines made right here in the Great Lakes state. 

Speaking of Great Lakes, did you know that they are the main reason why Michigan is able to produce award-winning wines? The Great Lakes dictate the climate, significantly contributing to our agriculture. The majority of Michigan wine grapes are grown within 25 miles of Lake Michigan (including ours)! 

Lake Michigan helps moderate the temperatures along the coast, protecting grapes and other crops from intense frosts and summer heat waves. In the winter, lake effect snow helps blanket vines and protect them from cold temperatures.Learn more about Michigan’s wine industry at michigan.org.

Celebrating Wine Month

This year, the Michigan Wine Collaborative (MWC) has declared the theme of Michigan Wine Month 2020 “Michigan Wine Wins.” 

“The Michigan Wine industry has an economic impact totalling $5.4 billon in the state of Michigan, including providing 47,000-plus jobs equaling $1.8 billion in wages, according to a 2017 study conducted by John Dunham & Associates.” — Michigan Wine Collaborative, http://michiganwinecollaborative.com/mwc_miwinemonth2020/

This year’s wine month may be a little different than usual, but you can still celebrate AND help support local winemakers. Make sure to choose Michigan wines when you can, and share your favorites using the hashtag #DrinkMIWine.You can find our wines at select local stores.

Blue Blood Limited Release 2019

By | Events, Wine Release | 2 Comments

We are excited to announce the annual release of Blue Blood on Saturday, June 29!  We will have free tasting of all of our products, and all wines will be available for purchase.

Last year’s batch sold out in one day, so be sure to pick some up while you can!

Saturday, June 29

6:00 — 9:00 PM

15811 Riley Street
Holland, MI 49424

Blue Blood is a very unique port-style wine which uses nearly 8 pounds of fruit in every bottle. We pick the very latest, most concentrated berries of the year and turn them into an extremely rich wine. After the wine is made, it is fortified with brandy, and aged for a year or more until we judge the flavor to be correct. It is then bottled and released immediately.

This limited release Blueberry Port sells out every year in one day, so stock is very limited. To reserve your bottles or cases, please email trevor@tanglewoodwinery.com and we will set them aside for pickup. Otherwise, Blue Blood will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for all attending the release party on June 29!

We hope to see you there!
