Wineries of Michigan is a detailed guide, a trip between home and even the closest Michigan winery becomes an adventure of discovery. Want to visit several wineries in a single day? Detailed maps and explicit driving directions from one winery to the next will effortlessly guide you. However, the real pleasure of Wineries of Michigan is learning the inside story of each of the 21 wineries based on personal visits by Tadevich, not from literature provided by the wineries. Tadevich shares fascinating and quirky details about each establishment, highlighting special aspects about each place and introducing readers to winemakers. Tadevich also suggests which wines to try from each vintner and what your palate should be experiencing when you try each delectable wine.
Community pages are at the end of each tour highlighting restaurants, bed and breakfasts, hotels and various activities in each winery's local area complete with the addresses, phone numbers and sometimes even web sites. Color maps and photographs make the book all the more appealing and easy to use.
Wineries of Michigan is Tadevich's second book in a planned series of state-focused winery guidebooks. Soon to come to bookstores are A Travel Companion to Lake Erie Wineries and A Travel Companion to Oregon Wineries.
