Up North Michigan Wines By The Bay is a comprehensive portrayal of the wine industry of Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas of northwest Michigan – describing not only the region's distinctive climate and its wineries, wines and grapes but also the determined and dedicated personalities who make it happen. Working to a remarkable level of detail, Storrer supports his research with extensive photography and maps. He brings the whole to life in conversations with owners, winemakers, growers and support organizations. Not content with nor losing sight of the “romance of the grape”, Storrer delves into the work and the risk – and thus the value – behind a glass of wine. Storrer rounds out his presentation with essays on wine labeling and marketing and with photo essays on the seasonal work of growing grapes and producing wine. Presenting his information in a format that is easy to follow and well-organized, Storrer writes in an informal style that includes helpful hints to the wine-buyer on the tasting, transportation, storage and serving of wine. In keeping with the region's “foodie-destination” reputation, the book includes winery recipes and food-pairing suggestions. Linda Jones, Executive Director of the Michigan Grape and Wine Industry Council, describes this book: “Wines by the Bay is a valuable resource for those following the burgeoning growth of the wine industry in northwest lower Michigan. Bill and Pat Storrer have truly undertaken a “labor of love” in their detailed documentation of the wineries and vineyards. The excitement emanating from this emerging wine region is captured in this beautifully presented book.” Of Storrer's book, Linda Murphy, author of American Wine: The Ultimate Companion to the Wines and Wineries of the United State”, writes: “Those who love Michigan wine – and those savvy enough to explore it -- should not miss this in-depth, engagingly written book. All the wineries, vineyards and personalities of the Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas are detailed in a conversational style. More than a guide for visiting tasting rooms (and an excellent one at that), it also explains how Northwest Michigan has become one of the nation's rising-star wine producers. Mouthwateringly good reading!”With its microscopic view of the region's wineries, this book will compliment the (mostly “macro level”) wine literature collection of the wine enthusiast.

If one of life’s major quests is for balance, it’s no surprise that Traverse City keeps topping national “best” lists. Here, visitors and locals come for the life balance—the serenity offered by the lapping of waves along hundreds of miles of sandy beach, a dark sky just made for wishing upon stars, the simplicity of picking up dinner at a roadside farm stand or from a chef who got her start at one. There’s a balance, too, of the simple and the elevated, as local chefs get noticed on the national stage, wineries scoop up international competition awards, and galleries attract acclaimed artists. There’s an old legend claiming that a dip in the waters of the 45th parallel, which passes through the region, will cure all that ails you. Others think simply a visit with the right mindset and at least one beach bonfire before you go might do the same. Discover for yourself in 100 Things to Do in Traverse City Before You Die.
