Michigan Wine Collaborative

The Michigan Wine Collaborative (MWC) is thankful to Governor Gretchen Whitmer for the opportunity to officially announce May

2021 as Michigan Wine Month.

The theme of 2021 Michigan Wine Month is “Michigan Wine For All”. The Michigan wine industry has an economic impact totaling

$5.4 billion in the state of Michigan, including providing 47,000-plus jobs equaling $1.8 billion in wages, according to a 2017 study

conducted by John Dunham & Associates. MWC is committed to increasing inclusion and expanding those numbers and our industry.

In addition to uniting the entire MI wine industry, Michigan Wine Month is dedicated to educating consumers across Michigan and

beyond about the quality and variety of world-class Michigan wines and the potential of our industry. We also strive to inspire MI wine

consumers to consider careers in the MI wine industry. Support your local farmers, winemakers, hospitality workers, and

our local wine industry by drinking and sharing Michigan wine all month long, and beyond.

This is a time we celebrate the return of MI Wine Country season. Make sure to visit your favorite Michigan tasting rooms…and maybe

some new favorites too, but please do it safely, social distanced, and masked up…remember to be kind too! We are up to 170

wineries in Michigan with something to offer to every kind of wine drinker. Help our tasting rooms #StaySafeStayOpen by supporting

your local tasting rooms and those across the state!

Cheers to Michigan Wine Month!
