North Central Michigan College will celebrate northern Michigan wines at the 4th annual Winning Wines of Northern Michigan Wine Tasting and Competition on Wednesday, May 13. The event will raise awareness of our area wines, wineries and viticulture programs and much needed funds for North Central’s Student Emergency Fund established to help students deal with financial challenges that impede their ability to complete their coursework.
The event will have two components:
There will be a Wine Competition from noon until 4 p.m. Local vintners, amateur and professional, are invited to submit their best wines to be reviewed by qualified members of the local viticulture community. Wines will be judged based on quality within their category. Double gold, gold, silver and bronze medals will be awarded. Judges include sommeliers, wine industry specialists, wine writers and restaurateurs. These awards highlight the quality of our area wines and the viticulture program offered at North Central.
From 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m., the public is invited to the Winning Wines of Northern Michigan Wine Tasting. Area wineries will host tasting tables. The judges will award prizes to the winning vintners. A silent auction of unique gifts will complete the evening.
Proceeds from the event will go to the NCMC Foundation Student Emergency Fund established to help students deal with financial challenges that impede their ability to complete their coursework.
This event is sponsored by the Michigan BrewVine Passport, Odawa Casino and the Bay View Wine Trail.
