Great harvest season 2014
From Paw Paw to Leelanau Peninsula, Old Mission and in between, Michigan boasts quality wines both whites and reds.
Many years ago, winemakers realized the land and the climate resembled some of the finest wine regions in France and Germany.
They built wineries along the lakeshore and opened their doors. Come and explore with me.
One of my favorite ones is Fenn Valley award-winning winery in southern Michigan. The winemaker is Doug Welsch and the winery has been family owned since 1973.
The winemaker’s choice is red Meritage and white Riesling. The atmosphere is friendly and easy-going.
There are many events throughout the year at the winery such as educational tours about winemaking and a 5k trail run.
The winery is open year round for tasting from 11a.m. to 6 p.m., on Sundays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Fenn Valley is no stranger to awards. Their late harvest Vignoles was awarded the best Vignoles in the country.
