Muskegon Summer Wine Up only one week away

The inaugural Muskegon Summer Wine Up festival kicks off on Saturday, June 8 from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Hackley Park. The festival will include live music, food trucks, wine tastings, a “Mystery Wine Contest,” and wine seminars.

The Muskegon Summer Wine Up is being produced and organized by Cumulus Radio – Muskegon, which features radio stations WLCS-FM (Classic Hits); WVIB-FM (Urban Adult Contemporary); Sunny 92.5 WWSN-FM (Adult Contemporary); 97.5 Nash Icon WLAW (Country).

Patrons will get a chance to sample over 100 wines. including many from Michigan, with sample sizes at 1.5 ounces.

The “Mystery Wine Contest” gives patrons the opportunity to showcase their skills at distinguishing between an expensive wine versus a box wine, for example.

“We want people who come out to have fun, so we came up with this game,” said Rich Berry of Cumulus Radio. “I think people will be surprised when they make the wrong pick,” Berry laughed. “Today’s wineries are so good at what they do that it can be very hard to determine what is a so-called fine wine and what is a discounted wine.”

Wineries participating include: Parducci Cellars, St. Julian Winery, Lemon Creek Winery, Leelanau Winery, Capa Di Vino, Jackson Family Wines, Bronco Family Wines, Woodbridge & Robert Mondavi Wines, Babich Wines, and Chateau Grand Traverse Winery.

There will be short seminars throughout the day that are designed to educate and entertain wine lovers.

“We’re calling it the ‘Muskegon Summer Wine Up’ although it isn’t officially summer yet. We thought it was a good idea to make this an event that celebrates that summer is coming soon to the Lakeshore,” said Berry. “Muskegon has always had some great festivals and we wanted to continue with that same spirit of fun that has always existed in Muskegon.”

“Whether you are a wine connoisseur or ... a wine novice and want to learn more, this is going to be a fun event,” said Berry. “We want to create a first class wine festival in Muskegon to take advantage of the natural beauty of Hackley Park.”

Admission is $15 and includes a souvenir wine glass and four wine sample tickets. Additional samples may be purchased. You must be 21 or older with a valid ID to attend. Everyone must present valid ID to be admitted.

Sponsors of the “Muskegon Summer Wine Up” include the Little River Casino, HarborLight Credit Union, Parties in the Park and the Muskegon Heights Optimist Club.
