Mackinaw Valley Vineyard - Aug 8, 2013

OLLI spent a delightful August afternoon touring Mackinaw Valley Vineyard. Bradley University alumnae Diane Hahn and her husband Paul Hahn, co-owners of the working vineyard were our private tour guides.

The winery is situated on a glacial moraine east of Mackinaw, featuring a gorgeous 30-mile view of the valley and farms below. The 96-acre property has about 14.5 acres of grapes.

OLLI members toured the vineyard and cellar, learning about all parts of the winery process from selecting the types of grapes and the labor intensive harvesting, to making the wine and bottling and labeling on-site.

A definite highlight of the trip was having Diane explain the wine tasting process and inviting OLLI members to taste six of vineyard’s wonderful wines.

After a delicious catered lunch OLLI members were free to taste more wine or spend time roaming the beautiful grounds.

OLLI would like to thank co-owners Paul and Diane Hahn for sharing their time and showing us their family owned Mackinaw Valley Vineyard.
