I never really drank wine until I met my wife Lindsey and her family who introduced it to me with plenty of heavy pours at Sunday dinners.


Fast forward years later our house is now a giant storage unit for all the wine we bought on trips up north to Michigan's wine country.

Mawby Winery (519 S. Elm Valley Road
Suttons Bay, MI 49682) was the vineyard listed in their article.

"Everything here is sparkling and it's all pretty good...The wine descriptions are really spot on—if you're looking for a bubbly wine that is reminiscent of a floral hip-hop diva or candied smooth jazz, you've come to the right place." - Andrea E.

You Could Own Madonna's Family Vineyard & Winery

The iconic Ciccone Vineyard and Winery has hit the market in Northern Michigan for a little under $5 million.

If the Ciccone name sounds familiar, it's because it's the birth name of the Material Girl. Madonna Louise Ciccone is one of Silvio 'Tony' Ciccone's eight children. The vineyard was founded by Ciccone and his wife Joan in 1995.

The property also includes a beautiful, 3,500 square foot winemaker's home, which has five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.
