Celebrating the End of Harvest Season in Michigan Wineries
As the autumn leaves paint a tapestry of red and gold across Michigan's wine regions, wineries across the state are wrapping up a journey that's been both challenging and rewarding. The end of harvest season marks a crucial milestone, and at Soul Squeeze Cellars, we have exciting news to share. We successfully harvested Chardonnay and Pinot Gris for our upcoming "Motor City Squeeze" wine with the Detroit Pistons. But that's not all—this year, we also welcomed a new varietal to our winery: Blaufränkisch. Join us as we celebrate the end of harvest and delve into the unique stories that have unfolded in Michigan's vineyards.
The Culmination of Months of Care and Patience
Harvest season in Michigan is a culmination of months of meticulous care, patience, and anticipation. It's a time when the fruits of labor, quite literally, come to life. This year, the Chardonnay and Pinot Gris grapes we've carefully nurtured have been harvested to become an integral part of our "Motor City Squeeze" wine, a co-branded masterpiece with the Detroit Pistons. This exceptional wine promises to embody the essence of Michigan's winemaking heritage
