As reported in Midwest Wine Press, a new wine producing area is taking root in Northern Michigan and we don’t mean the Traverse City area. The Petoskey News ran a story this week that Geoff and Gail Frey will be opening Crooked Vine Vineyard Winery later this month. See: New Winery To Open in Alanson
