Southeast Michigan Pioneer Wine Trail: 60 miles west of Detroit
Michigan's newest wine trail hides in the oft-overlooked Irish Hills region between Ann Arbor and Lansing. Seven wineries, including Sandhill Crane Vineyards (left), operate nine tasting rooms along quaint main streets and rural two-lane highways, perfect for a casual weekend tour.
The little towns also hold their own surprises. Jackson has a budding arts scene, while Chelsea is home to Michigan native Jeff Daniels' Purple Rose Theatre. Tecumseh has one of the area's best restaurants, Evans Street Station, where a lovely apple-and-pecan salad tastes as fresh and unexpected as, well, a crisp Michigan white on a hot day.
