My husband and I enjoyed a weekend in Southwest Michigan wine country in January. On a cold Saturday afternoon we joined two wonderful friends at Tabor Hill Winery for a tasting and chat for my correspondent review for American Winery Guide. As you plan your wine tasting trips for the spring and summer, utilize the guide to make the most of the winery stops. The guide has state-by-state winery reviews, events, articles, AVA information, pictures… a truly interactive wine traveler’s guide. Let me know what wineries you plan to visit!
Below in the introduction to my newest review, where you’ll find pictures, notes complete details about our visit to Tabor Hill Winery and Restaurant:
When people talk about Southwest Michigan wineries, they often mention Tabor Hill Winery and Restaurant. Tabor Hill’s winemaker, Michael Merchant, has been around for over 30 years, and in that time his wine has been served in the White House, praised by celebrities and awarded graciously.
I visited with my husband and two friends, and we had the tasting room to ourselves for most of the time we spent there. It was 5:00 on a Saturday, an hour when many local wineries close their doors for the day. Tabor Hill’s tasting room stays open until 9:00 on weekends, in tandem with the lovely restaurant onsite. The restaurant is as established as the winery, and the chef, John Paul, is recognized favorably.
