Celebrate National Wine Day in Alpena, Michigan

Posted on May 25th, 2016

Today is not just your typical “Wine Wednesday”. It’s National Wine Day! Our Sanctuary of the Great Lakes offers two beautiful wineries serving authentic Michigan wine in Alpena; whether you prefer red, white, dry or sweet. Enjoy your glass (or bottle…we’re not judging!) at one of these fine establishments, at home for a night in, or an evening picnic.

Pair your wine experience with gourmet caramel corn, hand-dipped wine truffles, and plenty of other sweet treats. This is the perfect spot for a quiet afternoon and beautiful scenery with friends, family, or your significant other.
