Wine Pairing Weekend Hits Up Midwestern Wine

I’m a Midwesterner. I’ve traveled the world to visit wine regions, but have always had respect for the people that make wine in places where the climate or culture isn’t always a natural fit. The Midwestern United States seems to fall into this category.

Despite that, the wine industry thrives in many parts of the region. My home state of Illinois is home to 150 wineries and 100+ miles of wine trails. I’ve served a judge for the Illinois Grape Growers and Vintners Alliance 2020 wine competition and Illinois Signature Rosé 2020 competition, and have discovered (after blind tasting hundreds of wines) some favorites from around the state.

The Midwest stretches far beyond the borders of the Land of Lincoln, and so does the wine landscape. Want to know more? Join the Wine Pairing Weekend writers as we discover the viticultural products of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
