The Southeast Michigan Pioneer Wine Trail will celebrate on Saturday and Sunday,  August 10-11 with a special event. “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 wonderful 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.
