Michigan = 45th Parallel

Do you know what the 45th parallel is?

Do you know where the 45th parallel is?

Do you know why the 45th parallel is so important?

Well let me give you some insight as to what the 45th parallel is and what it means.  The 45th parallel north is a circle of latitude across the globe.  It crosses places in Italy and France as well as Michigan.  The reason why this circle of latitude is so interesting is that for some reason, grapes tend to grow extremely well on it!  Therefore, great wine can be produced because of this.

In Michigan, there are so many wineries to go tasting at!  Zachary and I went to a few of them and I wanted to share below!  We stopped at the M22 Winery in Glen Arbor and the Good Harbor winery in Good Harbor and the Cherry Republic Winery in Glen Arbor.  See below some of the pictures we took tasting some of the wines.  They were absolutely delicious and we came home with a few bottles we can't wait to try! 
Yeah for Wine Tastings!
