Events and partnerships True to form, Miller continues to think forward. In an effort to build the White Pine brand, Miller has joined forces with Michigan State professor Kris Berglund and Uncle John’s Cider Mill proprietor Mike Beck to participate in a shared tasting room that is the first of its kind. Red Cedar Spirits, located in East Lansing, features wine, spirits and hard cider. With a distillery and classroom on site, MSU students also use the facility as part of the distilling program, which Berglund oversees. Through both tasting rooms, Miller says he is trying to expand sales and get the word out. The St. Joseph tasting room features annual events such as the Hunter Widows, a ladies’ night out as the husbands leave in pursuit of new mantel décor. January brings Winter Comforts, an event featuring White Pine reds alongside food from local chefs. Cabin Fever, a similar spring affair, showcases White Pine whites and food pairings. The White Pine Winery tasting room is at 317 State Street, St. Joseph. Red Cedar Spirits tasting room is at 2000 Merritt Road, East Lansing.
