January 24, 2022 Traverse City, MI: The Michigan Wine Collaborative proudly announces the release of The DREAM wine. The Michigan Wine Collaborative’s Inclusion and Expansion Committee will release a wine that will provide seed funding for the Inclusion and Expansion Education Fund. This fund will provide education and training for 2 underrepresented candidates for future career opportunities in Michigan's growing wine industry. “The DREAM Project is an important step in the unification of the Michigan wine industry providing opportunity and awareness to all people and a starting point for universal access to what Michigan wine offers in both employment and enjoyment of Michigan wine for all people,” says Chuck Jackson, Chairman of the MWC’s Inclusion and Expansion Committee and owner of Domaine Detroit Brands. The Inclusion and Expansion Committee has plans to recreate a wine annually to continue to offer this opportunity every year to candidates that apply to the program.

“This wine is a beautiful white blend based on Pinot Blanc, which is a grape that I believe has a real future in Michigan wine,” says Peter King, winemaker at start-up winery Drew Ryan Wines of Southfield and MWC board member. The DREAM was truly a collaboration in the Michigan wine industry between GRNoir Wine & Jazz of Grand Rapids, Domaine Detroit Brands and House of Pure Vin of Detroit, Drew Ryan Wines and Chateau Chantal. The collaborators plan on a series of awareness events across the state. The DREAM will be available starting this February at Meijer, Total Wine & More, House of Pure Vin, GRNoir Wine & Jazz and other local Michigan retailers for $20 and online at https://shop.chateauchantal.com/prod-403509/The-Dream.html A portion from each bottle sold will go directly to funding the Inclusion and Expansion Education Fund at the Michigan Wine Collaborative.
