Suggestions for an apple picking & winery day trip in SW Michigan

ctowncook | Sep 20, 2011 08:04 AM

I was hoping to take a little day trip this fall (ideally the second weekend in October) and am looking for tips. I'd like to hit up a couple of wineries that offer tastings and do some apple picking all in the same day. My boyfriend is a bit of an oenophile so I'd like to go someplace where the wines are decently good (Alexis Bailly in Minnesota comes to mind as a comparison for a winery that is not in a traditional wine producing region but still makes stuff that is good in its own right) and perhaps with a bit of ambiance, but I'd definitely take the former over the latter. Same is true for the orchard. Places with cute country stores and what not are always nice but for me lots of grounds to pick and proximity to wineries is preferred.

Thoughts?
