Coming Saturday: Old Mission wineries lauded by governor

TRAVERSE CITY — Gov. Rick Snyder honored Old Mission Peninsula wineries for unanimously participating in a voluntary state program that shows they're minimizing agricultural pollution and complying with environmental regulations.

Snyder on Friday attended a media event at Brys Estate Vineyard and Winery during which the seven established Old Mission wineries — another recently debuted — were honored for being the first wine trail in the state with all of its members achieving Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program verification. Grape growers Lardie Orchards, Manigold Farms, Montana Rusa Farms and Ochs Orchards were also honored for being MAEAP verified.
