+ 40th Anniversary Fenn Valley winery

From the Editor
June is a very special month around here, especially this year. June 8th, 2013 marks our 40th anniversary! It was on that day the Welsch family arrived on the farm and took possession of the land now known as Fenn Valley Vineyards. What started as a dream of the founder, Bill Welsch, was about to become a reality. This issue of the email newsletter is dedicated to the anniversary and the fact the “American Dream” is very much alive and well.
We most certainly would not be here without all your help. We invite you to stop by the winery this weekend (June 8th and 9th) to share in the celebration. We will be pouring complimentary samples of our sparkling wines along with complimentary appetizers in the Green Barn all weekend. Please come on out and share in this special occasion!
