 While roaming northern Michigan last week, this iconic image caught my eye. It was taken in Petoskey’s historic Symons General Store where jars of Michigan cherries bump elbows with imported gourmet items. A place where every tourist should grab a coffee and settle in on the front porch to watch the world go by, the store also boasts a wine cellar with some 5,000 bottles, including many ‘made in Michigan’. The downtown store’s collection is so cool, it even found a spot on Food & Wine magazine’s list of “America’s 50 Most Amazing Wine Experiences” (October 2006).
