MCVO was able to revive one of our long standing traditions of having a Wine Tour in the Fall. During the weekend of September 27th thru 29th, 63 people and 33 Vipers were registered for a full weekend of food, wine and driving (hopefully not all at the same time).
Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans and we experienced various levels of rain on Friday and Sunday. Saturday was a perfect day, and we were able to fully enjoy all that northern Michigan had to offer. Our tour on Saturday of the beautiful home and garage of Dan and Sue McDavid, was even more spectacular with the sunny blue skies. The backdrop of their home and grounds against the water, were breathtaking.
Every aspect of the tour went without a hitch. The restaurants, wineries and The Homestead, made our trip memorable. Our thanks go out to our coordinator Mike and Diane Cipponeri . Their hard work and attention to detail showed in every facet of the trip. We also want to thank our host and co-coordinators Dan and Sue McDavid for their help and opening their lovely home to the group.
The link to Flickr is only a small sampling of the beautiful photos taken during the weekend. We want to thank Ann Rappaport, and Cari Lambert.
We cannot say enough about Jerry Stutzman, who spent the entire Saturday, photographing our event and creating a web site just for our photos. You may click here to be taken to Jerry’s site.
Lastly, a very big thank to our Photography Director, Susan Andring for her great photos of the event. You may click here to be taken to her SmugMug page.
