    Traverse City is City of Riesling™!

    June 10-11, 2018


    Renowned wine makers, journalists and sommeliers from around the world will once again converge on the fair shores of Grand Traverse Bay in Traverse City, Michigan, to connect with each other, learn, and explore the Best White Wine on Earth. This global wine event hosted in Michigan wine country is the fourth time an international set of industry rock stars will experience hundreds of the finest examples of Riesling (and some surprises) from every major wine-producing country and region in the world, all while surrounded by the unparalleled beauty of northwestern lower Michigan. Guests rub shoulders throughout the weekend with visiting dignitaries, as we partner with the wine world to educate the local community about the economic and environmental impact of the wine industry, in a one-of-kind series of tasting events and panel discussions, with more learning, food, entertainment and fun than you can shake a hock bottle at!
