FROM THE EDITOR
What a difference a few weeks make! We are now right in the middle of the most critical time of year in the vineyards. The plants have shifted gears from growing bigger to ripening fruit. Some of the early white grapes are already starting to take on their individual varietal characteristics while just about every red grape has turned color. The hard work of weeding, pruning and canopy management has been replaced by patience as we let Mother Nature take it from here.
We also have fields and fields of gorgeous sunflowers on the farm. This wonderful addition has prompted all sorts of photo opportunities, and a host of questions. Doug wrote a short article explaining what it is all about on our blog.
Behind the scenes we have been very busy with several big efforts – including a new online store, our first ever trail run, our second Lunch with the Winemaker, Wine and Food Tours and more. And of course the cellar is busy preparing for the onslaught of Michigan grapes that is just around the corner! Make sure you come out to visit us during this extremely special time of year.
