Local vineyard and winery Cody Kresta has created a new wine in honor of the conservation of SWMLC’s new Portman Nature Preserve in Almena and Antwerp Township, and is donating ALL PROCEEDS toward the creation of the preserve! David and Mary Lou Butkovich, owners of Cody Kresta, describe “Portman’s Legacy” white wine as having the body of a Riesling with a familiar semi-sweet flavor, but dry with an added blend of Traminette grapes that add some sweet floral notes, and blended with white cabernet franc to add an overall complexity of flavor.  Portman’s Legacy was unveiled during the Portman Nature Preserve Sneak Peek event in May; it’s now available for purchase at Cody Kresta’s booth at the Mattawan Market and in the tasting room at their winery, 45727 27th St., Mattawan.

But hurry, it’s selling quickly!
