We had an excellent time during the Annual Spring Sip & Savor Wine Tour! This year we served our semi-sweet rose Fling with a spicy Mexican chicken tortilla soup (grab the recipe).  

Check out a few of the photos from the weekend! Thanks to all who wore fun and crazy hats for our contest giveaway. 

See the photos!



 

Where are the hats, Danielle and Patti?!?

$302 Raised for AC PAW at the Spring Sip & Savor

Thank you to everyone who donated to AC PAW Animal Rescue during this year's Spring Sip & Savor! Over Saturday and Sunday of this past weekened, we raised $302 to help the sick, abused, homeless, and unwanted pets at AC PAW.

For those of you not familiar with AC PAW, they are a non-profit no-kill animal rescue. Since 1995, they have rescued over 7,000 cats and dogs here in northern Michigan. AC PAW holds a special place in our heart. For our regular guests you may remember our black lab, Gina. She was found with her brothers and sisters on the side of the road near our vineyard as a puppy. We called AC PAW and they helped to take care of the pups, spay/neuter them, and find loving forever homes for all of them except for Gina. We kept her and she spent her days living the good life at our vineyard.

If you'd still like to donate to AC PAW, we will happily accept donations anytime at our tasting room.

Cheers!
