FENNVILLE (WKZO) -- The strain on international wine supplies is expected to create a growing demand for Michigan-made wines.

Unlike international, value-driven wines, those produced in locally will not face price increases.  Wineries in the state have already been facing high demand as Michigan wines become more popular in the U.S.

The Michigan Grape and Wine Industry Council reports that Michigan produces nearly 1.5-million gallons of wine each year, which adds 300-million dollars to the state's economy.
