The holidays bring a festive atmosphere ready to celebrate with Michigan’s finest wines. The folks at the eight distinctive Wineries of Old Mission Peninsula have put together some suggestions for wine pairings with your favorite holiday dishes to help you celebrate the season!
For a crisp, Granny Smith apple flavor that pairs well with holiday spices and finishes with a tinge of sweetness, go for the 2014 Bowers Harbor Vineyards Riesling Medium Dry. This bright wine bounces off the spices, and cuts through the richness of many holiday dishes, allowing the taste of both of the food and wine to come through. The sweeter finish offers a cool down, proving this Riesling to be the perfect complement to hot dishes.
Bowers Harbor Vineyards' own proprietor, Spencer Stegenga, is trying to strengthen Michigan's clean energy commitment. In a letter sent to Representative Larry Inman, Representative Aric Nesbitt and Senator Mike Nofs, Spencer and fellow northern Michigan business owners, Marie Dalese (Chateau Chantal) and Justin Rashid (American Spoon Foods, Inc.), spoke about the importance of the clean energy movement in Michigan.
Here is an excerpt:
If clean renewable energy goals disappear, so will the progress Michigan businesses have made. Through energy efficiency, businesses are saving money on their utility bills, meaning they can create jobs, expand and continue to invest in our state. And for families, energy efficiency means we get to keep more of our hard-earned money.
