Unrestricted Information

A world of hard rules incurs fixation on what things should be and limits our opportunity to experience an unrestricted journey of life. The artistic essence of this wine began in the soil of our vineyards. With the utmost care and the vigilance of wisdom we have devoted years to the virtuosity of this wine.

Unrestricted is a premium brand released by Mackinaw Trail Winery only in vintages considered sufficient quality to suit the label. In an effort to maintain strict quality control, every part of the process from grape to bottle is vigilantly maintained by our head of production; Dustin Stabile. The process begins in carefully selected vineyards, cropped low to ensure proper ripeness and concentration in each grape cluster. Fruit is handpicked and sorted. Each satisfactory batch selected is fermented carefully in temperature controlled stainless tanks or oak vats, where a variety of winemaking techniques enhance the product depending on the end goal. All barrels used are chosen based on region, grain, and toast level, all of which contribute to the delicate integration of tannin structure and phenolic components. Each barrel is carefully sampled and determined in the final blend which results in a complex yield of many characteristics. Unrestricted exemplifies everything Michigan wines strive to be.
