The Pioneer Wine Trail
In the 1820's and 1830's the first Michigan pioneers trekked into the swampy woods around Detroit, carving out a new life for themselves and a new state for the Union.

The Pioneer Wine Trail sets the seal on Michigan's newest wine region. The Trail is an association of wineries and tasting rooms that have banded together to tell the story (and make the history) of great wine in Southeast Michigan's expansive back yard.
The Wineries and Tasting Rooms of the Trail are:
