Southeast Michigan’s Pioneer Wine Trail will bring you a taste of summer on Saturday, August 6 and Sunday, August 7.

The Wine Days of Summer is a self-driving tour of the wineries of the Pioneer Wine Trail. At each stop you’ll be served a picnic-related food prepared by a local chef or restaurant. Each winery will provide a generous pouring of one of their wines that pairs well with the food. You’ll also receive a recipe card to take home with you.
