Year after year PerryMoore turns out some huge and powerful Napa Cabs and Red Blends. The winery owner, Mickey Moore, a winemaker himself, will be dining with us in our historic Gallery Barn. The winemaker for PerryMoore's huge Napa Reds is Kian Tavakoli, who cut his teeth at the infamous Opus One and on the Reserves for Clos Du Val.

The price is $100 per person and includes the PerryMoore Reds and welcome wines from another of Napa's great wine houses, Venge, plus the gourmet meal from The Farmhouse Deli.

2015 Fruit Update
We  were really getting excited with the warm days but gotta Love Mother Nature -  A 2 week or longer cool down is starting this week. So any harvest dates are questionable right now.  Update Soon! 
The brutle cold winter was very damaging for many Michigan Fruits.
Blueberries have long lasting damage  from 2013 along with 2014 with about 50% if not more of the crop is lost for the 2015 season.
Our Summer Red Raspberries, Black Raspberries and Blackberries look good so far.
But we are cleaning up now and will know more as it warms up.
Strawberries are looking good so far thanks to the Snow Cover all winter.
Fresh Michigan Asparagus is looking good but now with the 2 week cool down the harvest date is not available yet!!

Michigan Peaches have alot of damage due to the Brutle Cold the Crop will be very Low!
