BROOKLYN, Mich. -- With the attendance of thousands of wine and beer fans, the Great Lakes Wine Fest presented by the Jackson County CVB proved to be a festive, fun event in its second year at Michigan International Speedway.

The event, which featured nearly 50 Michigan-based wineries and breweries from around the state, saw guests receive memorable experiences in the backdrop of the NASCAR racetrack.

With popular wine and food pairings, high-speed pace car rides, live music and entertainment and many of the great wines and brews of Michigan, the Great Lakes Wine Fest presented by the Jackson County CVB, no one went home unhappy, trucking home many of the popular wines and beers from the retail store after their visit.

“This was a fabulous event and I’m really enjoying myself,” said Lori Engmark of nearby Napoleon, Mich. “We have definitely enjoyed ourselves here and have tasted so many great wines. I have a few I plan on buying and taking home with me tonight. It was a great day.”

MIS President Roger Curtis and the speedway staff were thrilled with the turnout as many wine and beer enthusiasts spent their day at the Irish Hills track. Seeing positive growth in the wine fest, now in its second year, is a testament to how popular wine is in Michigan.

One of the main factors in the growth of the event was a 30 percent increase in wineries and breweries year over year, as well as a marked increase in vendors and displays. Some of the crowd favorites included a wood carving exhibition and the Jackson County CVB “cork toss.”

“What a fabulous turnout today!” Curtis said. “I couldn’t be happier that all these people decided to attend our event and make the Great Lakes Wine Festival a great success. It’s a known fact that wine is popular in our state and to see this event’s growth year-over-year truly shows how much people enjoy wines and beers in a unique setting like MIS. I’m very pleased with the turnout and hope people return to their homes and talk about coming back next year.”

Nestled in the lush Irish Hills of Southeastern Michigan, Michigan International Speedway is the Great Escape, a venerable NASCAR national park where fans can get away and enjoy the very best in racing and camaraderie. It’s the love of racing and the thrill of a great time for race fans and drivers alike.
