Petoskey Farms’ 2018 La Crescent
By Lynda Wheatley | May 11, 2019
The quietly but quickly growing Bay View Wine Trail is under the radar no more. Thanks to a fresh rebrand, the now 12-member group of wineries near the Tip of the Mitt — think Ellsworth, Alanson, Harbor Springs, Petoskey, and Walloon — is now the (exceptionally SEO- andwine-lover-friendly) Petoskey Wine Region. If you haven’t already stumbled upon their website, the unforgettable petoskey.wine, head there to get in on the gang’s latest news, upcoming events, and link to each winery. Every one has great wines on offer, but our favorite for a sunny, almost-summer day: Petoskey Farms’ 2018 La Crescent. A semi-sweet white with light notes of pineapple, honeydew, and wildflower, it’s well-balanced, with medium body, and, as it turns out, the ideal mate to watch absolutely no clouds roll by. Get some at Petoskey Farms’ downtown tasting room, 207A Howard St., in Petoskey, (231) 290-9463; or just outside of town, at the vineyard and winery, 3720 Atkins Rd. (231) 290-9463.
