VESTA Michigan

45 North

Jay Briggs

Winemaker from 45 North, Lake Leelanau, MI

Jay will speak about the 45th parallel wines, why this is a great growing region, and what makes the wines special.

At 45 North you can find him in the production building most of the time except when the guys are sneaking out to sample at other wineries, breweries, or cideries.. Like they say, it takes a lot of good beer to make good wine … and they like to test that theory. It seems to be working so far. His exuberant personality brings a lot of fun days and laughs to the winery. He might not be too serious, but he is serious about his wines. He enjoys experimenting and creating new products like our Wild Cider and Citra Cider.
