Not far from Jackson, Michigan, on the way to or from Detroit, is exit 127 on I-94 for Albion. If you can look past the Lion's Den Adult Superstore, you'll find two winery tasting rooms, along with one for a brewery.
For over 100 years, four generations of Burtka’s have been making wines in this country. Cherry Creek, an environmentally conscious winery that sponsors many charities and uses several biodynamic principles, sources most grapes from other Michigan vineyards. Their oaked wines are aged in French, Michigan, and Great Lakes barrels and fermented with premium French yeasts. They also own Sleeping Bear Winery, Bad Bear Brewery, and Lynn Aleksandr premium wines.
We stopped by several weeks ago to try some of their wines -- we really enjoyed a Rosé from the Lynn Aleksandr line, and a few others. Definitely worth a stop if you are driving by.
