Moms Love Michigan Wine

Looking for a special Mother’s Day gift?

Looking for a special Mother’s Day gift? Surprise Mom with a custom gift basket combining her favorite hobby, a bottle or two of Michigan wine, and a Vintage Michigan membership card for discounts at Michigan wineries. Going bigger? Send her on an overnight trip to wine country or give her the gift of wine with a wine club membership.

Fill a hearty woven basket, garden tub or flower pot with books and a gift card for the bookworm, new garden gloves, and herb scissors for the gardener, running socks and airy shirt for the runner, or mandolin and tortilla press for the chef. Add a Vintage Michigan card, so she can save on purchases at Michigan wineries, restaurants and wine retailers, and on lodging. Complement these gifts with lighter-tasting, full-flavored wines, like Hickory Creek or 45 North Cabernet Franc Rosé, Left Foot Charley or Chateau Grand Traverse Riesling, Bel Lago Auxerrois, Black Star Farms Sur Lie Chardonnay, or Chateau Aeronautique Winery Pinot Gris.

For moms who love sparkling wine, give M. Lawrence’s Wet to toast bye-bye to April snow showers. For May’s probable warmer temps, Larry Mawby, renowned winemaker of M. Lawrence and L. Mawby sparkling wines, suggests, "M. Lawrence Green and — I love May flowers — so L. Mawby’s J'adore."

Planning an overnight or weekend getaway for Mom? Book the loveliest room with a vineyard and cerulean view at Chateau Chantal Winery and Inn on Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City.  Celebrating 20 years, the winery/B&B offers special add-on inn packages, such as "Breakfast in Bed." A private stay is available at Brys Estate Vineyard and Winery, also on the peninsula. A charming guest house is situated between the Brys homestead and wine tasting room. After tasting hours, mom can de-stress on the porch amid the estate’s quiet, breathtaking scenery. On Leelanau Peninsula, Black Star Farms offers elegant inn lodging in Suttons Bay. The farmstead features wine tasting, a distillery, gourmet fare, an equestrian farm, and hiking trails. Lodging is also available in Harbor Country in southwest Michigan at numerous B&Bs, including Worthenbury Country House in Baroda. 

Keep Mom happy and stocked with wine with an annual wine club membership.  Domaine Berrien Cellars provides members-only discounts on the winery’s mainstays of dry reds and Rhone varietal wines, like Syrah, Marsanne and Viognier. For moms who love the idea of wine delivery, sign her up for Brys Estate’s club, which sends two wine shipments a year and provides members-only discounts on wines, as well as VIP tours, free tastings and guaranteed delivery of sold-out wines.

Busy moms appreciate a nice glass of wine after a hectic day. Surprise your mom with a personal gift that includes Michigan wine. She'll love it.
