Chicago Tribune reporter Lori Rackl spent a long weekend in southwest Michigan's wine country. Her trip included a visit to LMC's teaching winery, Lake Michigan Vintners, where she was impressed by the students' work:
"Another place you don’t see every day is Lake Michigan Vintners, a relatively new tasting room with an urban feel in downtown Baroda. The wine is made by students at Lake Michigan College. They must be studying hard, because they’re acing the end result."
