From Indianz:

The Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians of Michigan might get into the wine business.

The tribe conducted a $104,000 feasibility study to determine whether to start a vineyard and winery. “We’re looking at different economic ventures in the area,” Chairman Derek Bailey told Crain’s Detroit. “I think that we need to, especially during these economic times, to explore new ventures.”

The winery would be located near the Grand Traverse Resort and the Turtle Creek Casino & Hotel.
