The first annual Wine-A-Palooza is set to take place at Laketown Golf and Conference Center located at 6069 Blue Star Highway in Saugatuck, MI. Wine-A-Palooza is a three day wine tasting event that starts on June 15th and runs thru the 17th. This event is the brainchild of local entrepreneur Bob Johnson. Johnson has become well-known throughout the West Michigan community through his business West Michigan Caterer, which started nearly 30 years ago. Johnson views Wine-A-Palooza as an opportunity to unite all wine lovers in a casual and enjoyable atmosphere.
