When you think of Michigan’s wine country,  you probably think of the vineyards in places like Traverse City or the Leelanau Peninsula.

But while the sandy soil along the lakeshore is where most of the state’s wine grapes are grown, there are plenty of wineries in other parts of the state.  

Burgdorf’s Winery in Haslett is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.

When owners Deb and Dave Burgdorf started the winery 10 years ago, they were actually working out of their garage.  They’ve expanded since then.  

The garage now houses their tasting room and gift shop, and a barn behind the house has been converted into a 4,000 square foot production facility.
