Parting words: Michigan Awesome is a brand of wine, food, apparel, jewelery and just about everything else based in Holland Michigan. It’s all based around Michigan-ness with lots of stuff with the outline of the shape of Michigan on it.
All the Michigan Awesome wines, including their red blend, white blend, cherry wine, and blueberry wine are made by Fenn Valley in Fennville. They’re good winemakers, so I thought Michigan Awesome Blueberry Wine might actually be decent. It is. It’s complex for a blueberry wine, meaning it doesn’t just taste like blueberry juice. It has some nice acid and woodsy notes that make it more enjoyable than most blueberry wines. I’d like it better if it was under $10 but $11 isn’t too bad. Michigan Awesome Blueberry Wine is recommended.
