Michigan Allows Wine At Farmer’s Markets
According to Crain’s Detroit Business, on Tuesday the Michigan Senate passed legislation allowing Michigan wineries to offer tastings of their products at the state’s nearly 300 farmers markets. However, in order to sell wine at farmer’s markets, the winery must produce less than 5,000 gallons.
According to Linda Jones at the Michigan Grape and Wine Industry Council, “The new legislation is a step in the right direction. Some people thought the winery production limit could have been higher, but anything that exposes more people to Michigan wine is positive.”
