+Fenn Valley Winery Fall 5K run plus much more just 2 miles from J. Paule's Fenn Inn


From the Editor

The cooler summer weather hasn't stopped the vineyards from growing like crazy! And while last winter certainly took a toll on the vines, we are still predicting a nice crop in 2014.
Speaking of growing seasons, 2012 was an epic vintage in Michigan. In particular red wines from 2012 have tremendous aging potential. If you don't have the patience to wait several years to experience them, check out this blog post by Doug on "Instant Wine Aging." It's a quick read and very well may impact how you open and serve wine from now on.
This issue features important information on two of our most popular experiences at Fenn Valley - fall tours and the Vine Wined 5K. Make sure you sign up soon as space is quickly filling up!
