The History of Wine Making

Monday, March 23, 2020
6:00 PM

Learn about the checkered history of viniculture and wine making in our area from wine expert Rick Cooper and Nick Bogert of The Region of Three Oaks Museum. They'll show (via Power Point) and tell about the bootlegging, the controversial religious sect that became the area's biggest grape grower, arson fires, and even the German POW's put to work in wine making. Where does the area rank in making fine wines, and why has Michigan struggled to keep up with its wine-producing competitors over the years
