A highlight of the Maple Festival is the celebration of the current vintage of Sandhill Crane Vineyards’ limited edition dessert wine made with local maple sap and syrup.
In addition our café will feature all sorts of sweet and savory dishes made with maple, including Sugar Snow Sorbet, a light, refreshing sorbet made with our wine by Zingerman’s Creamery.
Free admission; wine tastings $5.
Once again we are teaming up with Mindo Chocolate to present a Wine & Chocolate Pairing Workshop – it’s the perfect pairing!
Join us and a representative of Mindo Chocolate for an amazing wine and chocolate pairing! The rep will talk about their farms in South America and their processing facility in Dexter, MI. You’ll see raw cocoa beans, cocoa pods, cocoa fruit syrup, and a metate (traditional stone grinder) to show the entire process from farm to chocolate bar.
A highlight of the pairing workshop will be our newly released maple wine (Sugar Snow) paired with Mindo’s special Salted Maple & Pecan bar.
The pairing workshop includes 5 different Mindo chocolate and Sandhill wine tastings. A range of Mindo products will be available for purchase that day.
Cost: $20 per person. Seating is limited; reservations recommended. Call 517-764-0679.
