Bosky: Having trees or shrubs; slang for tipsy



A bold experiment

We're off the beaten path, a winery and vineyard that began with the premise that Bernie Rink's five sons needed something to do to stay out of trouble. In 1965, Bernie, then a librarian at Northwestern Michigan College, planted a one-acre test plot of wine grapes in Leelanau County to determine if commercial wine could be made locally. The rest, as they say, is history. To view a wonderful PBS feature on us, click here.
