The '06 vintage in Michigan: It might be better for whites

Postby Paul B. » Thu Sep 28, 2006 11:32 am

This is an interesting read, giving some feedback on the 2006 vintage up in northern Michigan. Here in Ontario, it is very much the same: September has been very atypically cold and wet; not a good omen for what seemed up to August to be another very promising red-wine vintage in Ontario following the great '05. But who knows - the whites may indeed be fine, just as they are from the rather rainy 2004.

Despite the gray days, Michigan winemakers optimistic about 2006 vintage

Thanks for posting that, Paul. As I've been experiencing the wet cool weather, I wondered about the effect on our friends up at TC. And it looks like more of the same for another week, interspersed with an occasional bit of sun. Like now.
