A few short days away and it’s the men’s turn to be celebrated. Father’s day has long been a fun family gathering in my family. This time of year means grilling steaks in the egg and fresh flowers in the garden. In my search for fun events this weekend I came across quite a few wine tastings/ openings for this weekend. I’d love to hear if you happen to check any of them out!
1) Over at Mari Vineyards, near Traverse City, MI, they are celebrating a grand opening on June 18th, 2016. Here’s what they have to say:
“Mark your calendars and come celebrate the grand opening of Mari Vineyards on June 18th, 2016. We will be providing live music, tastings and free tours in our stunning new winery on Old Mission Peninsula. There are also rumors that a few bottles of our limited reserve wines which date back to 2005 will be opened up for this event.” Find out more here at Mari Vineyards.
2) On the far west side of the state is the Lake Michigan Wine Festival. Also on the 18th of June, this festival features some of the best Michigan’s wines.
“Sample award-winning wines from Lake Michigan Shore Wine Country. Enjoy great music & food, right on the beautiful shore of Lake Michigan! Learn more about the 19 participating wineries at www.miwinetrail.com”
3) Sandhill Crane Vineyards in Jackson, MI is having a Father’s day open house to honor all the great dad’s that love a good wine.:
“Bring dad (and the rest of the crew) for a Father’s Day Open House filled with cigars, cheeses, and live music! We’re setting up a special area in the Meadow (the open grassy area east of the winery building) with a cigar vendor, and cheese samples from all of our Michigan vendors. And we’re offering free tastes of our 840 port for dad! bello spark will be performing in the afternoon on the front porch, and the cafe is featuring a special port-friendly charcuterie board just for the occasion. Admission is free. Call us at 517.764.0679 for more information.” For More info go to Sandhill Crane Events.
4) Finally on my list is Lemon Creek Farms. Also on the west side of the state and featuring a Father’s day event, Lemon Creek is not only great for wine they also have a u-pick farm. Fun for the whole family!
“Michigan’s longest running wine festival! Featuring live music by Libido Funk Circus, a classic Corvette car show, kids games, hay-rides & more.” More info at Lemon Creek Farms Events.
There are so many more things happening this weekend, I’m looking forward to a little R&R myself. Whatever you do, remember to hug say a few thanks to a DAD!
All my love,
