Michigan's Holy Water

Enjoy the history and tastes of Michigan wine with Rick Sigsby and Kevin Leahy

The Michigan wine industry has a rich and colorful history. There are more than one hundred wineries sprinkled all over the state, and every vineyard and wine maker has a story! Rick “the wine guy” Sigsby will share some of these stories, a little Michigan wine history and the myths and mysteries of wine from his book, Michigan’s Holy Water: The Great Lakes Wine Bible. Kevin Leahy will also be on hand to facilitate a tasting of wines from the Cadillac Winery. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door and can be purchased at, by phone at 989-837-1885 or at Creative 360, 1517 Bayliss in Midland.

Rick Sigsby is a retired Park Ranger, writer, and part-time owner of race horses. His book covers many of Michigan’s best wineries with history and interviews. Sigsby says it provides “an insider’s look at why every resident should have their wine racks filled with Michigan wine and every tourist should never pass a wine tasting room without stopping.”

Bring your copy of Rick’s book for signing or purchase signed copies at the event.

Mark your calendars now for August 12 when Sigsby returns for a Book Signing and Beer Tasting Event featuring his book Michigan’s Holy Hops: The Great Lakes Beer Bible. Beer tasting provided by Midland Brewing Company.
