Michigan Wine Month Video: Wineries ‘Wish You Were Here’ – and They Can’t Wait to See You

#MICHIGANWINEMONTHCHALLENGE continues all month to benefit hospitality workers


Michigan Wine Country magazine and the Michigan Wine Collaborative have produced a short video commemorating Michigan Wine Month, May 2020.

While some Michigan wineries close each winter, others whose tasting rooms would have been open have been shuttered during Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home COVID-19 order. Either way, wineries would normally be operating or opening now.

With its theme of “Wish You Were Here — We Can’t Wait to See You,” the video features winery owners, workers, families and even a few winery dogs from across the state. Its message is that Michigan’s wineries are hopeful and optimistic about the season ahead, and that they look forward to having visitors return.

The video also shares information about the #MICHIGANWINEMONTHCHALLENGE, which is offering winery packages for bid at https://mrlaef.org/relief-fund/michigan-wine-month-challenge.html. Proceeds will go to support Michigan hospitality workers whose livelihoods have been threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic.
