Southwest Michigan Wine Country Tour

An example of a fun day on the Tim’s Tours bus if we just tour the basic  Baroda Michigan area:

We’ll begin our Wine Country excursion from the Granger exit toll road parking lot off Capital Avenue at high noon as that is the most secure place to leave vehicles and hopefully convenient to all participants. It’s a good idea to have lunch before arriving so you don’t taste on an empty stomach – and feel free to bring a few snacks for the bus, and yes you can have beverages on board too..

We’ll arrive at Tabor Hill Winery at 12:45 where we will be greeted by a host who will take us to their group area for a special tasting and a video tour of the winery. For those who have never done this or who have little experience with how a winery actually functions from the cultivation of the vines to the harvesting of the grapes, to the actual winemaking process, this is a really interesting video.

Michigan Micro Brewery Excursion

What a fun and relaxing day we’ll have taking a bus ride to some of the top micro breweries in Michigan. Sunday is the best day for this to avoid the larger crowds and be able to have a nice dinner before coming home and getting ready for the work week ahead. Relax with friends over a beer and enjoy the ride with no driving worries! 

We’ll assemble and leave the Granger toll road parking lot at 12:30 PM after everyone has had time for some lunch; we all need to have some food before doing a micro tour!  Our first stop will be at the new Paw Paw Brewing Company where a couple of guys are living their dream and brewing beer. We just may tap our foot on the patio to some live Blue Grass music and sample 5 of their best “flights” from Ale to Stouts!
