Easley Winery has struck gold with its 2010 Michigan Riesling — a gold medal that is, at the 2012 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Selected as one of four gold medals awarded in a competitive field of similar Riesling offerings, Easley Winery could not be more proud of its 2010 Michigan Riesling. “It’s great to step out onto the field of competition and bring home a victory,” said Easley Winery owner Mark Easley. “Easley Winery has been producing high-quality wines for years, and this gold medal, along with other recent wins such as Reggae Red’s Best of Class at the Pacific Rim Wine Competition and others, keep driving that point home.” Easley Winery’s 2010 Michigan Riesling is produced at the Easley Winery production facilities in downtown Indianapolis, and the Riesling grapes are grown in southwest Michigan, just 12 miles north of Indiana’s border. The climate of southwest Michigan proves to be the ideal location for growing Riesling grapes. Lake Michigan’s effect on the vineyard is similar to the traditional Riesling growing regions of the world. Easley Winery works very closely with their grape growers to produce the finest wines possible. Easley Winery has been creating high-quality wines and champagnes since 1974. Depending on the year and season, Easley Winery produces 20 or more wine or champagne varieties. 2010 Michigan Reisling can be purchased at Indiana Meijer locations, select retailers that carry great wines, and Easley Winery, where great wines are created everyday.
