For 87 years, the St. Julian Winery has been turning out a variety of table wines at its Paw Paw, MI, facility. Now it has joined the boutique vodka craze.
The state's oldest operating winery will be allowed to sell its own grape vodka next month, after getting state approval to do more than manufacture the spirit.
Dave Braganini of St. Julian said the company had been allowed to make vodka, "but we're not allowed to sell it. There's a quirk in the law."
That quirk was removed by the state senate last week and Gov. Jennifer Granholm is expected to sign the legislation into law in the next few days.
