The Michigan Grape and Wine Industry Council (MGWIC) aims to increase wine grape production up to 10,000 acres and 3 million cases of Michigan-produced wines annually by 2024. As of 2007, over 53 wineries had been established in Michigan in traditional production regions such as Northern and Southwest Michigan, and less traditional areas such as West Central, South East, Eastern and the Upper Peninsula. The successful expansion of wine grape production depends on growing appropriate varieties for site characteristics. Therefore variety recommendations are crucial and they are based on genetic performance tested in variety trials for Vitis vinifera and mixed species (hybrids) planted in the state of Michigan.
