My wedding anniversary was on September 10 and because it was during the week Forrest had no intention of going out to dinner. I mean who goes out on a “school night”, right? I know he is a funny guy! Well, I decided that if I had to wait we would not be going to anyplace we had been before and besides he promised me more adventures this year.
I did some google stalking about a town I had heard a great deal about but had not really ever stopped in. The town was South Haven. Although it was past Labor Day there was still quite a bit of activity. I made a list of Vineyards I wanted to try out, a few places to eat and of course some breweries.
Our first stop was at a really nice vineyard with a beautiful tasting room. The Vineyard was called Cogdal, . The woman who help us was great! Very knowledgeable as well as very customer service oriented. She was no pushy and listened to what I enjoyed in a wine and it’s hard to find a good dry red wine in Michigan.
Our next stop that we enjoyed was right in the heart of South Haven called Warner Vineyard Tasting Room, . Here the tasting was a bit different because Forrest and I were given the choice to get the flight of wine and go outside to sit and enjoy. I really liked that unique part of the tasting.
Of course we can’t just try wines because Forrest is more of a beer guy and I knew his fun meter was about done for. We found a place to have a bite to eat that was on a boat and decided where we would go next. There was a brewery right down from the Warner tasting room but we were far from impressed. We had to ask if they had their own brewed beer! Seriously???? They didn’t encourage their beers or try to sell them at all. Forrest did try a couple but they were lacking. However we did find another brewery that has only been around for a few months and it was FABULOUS!! The guys working were not only knowledgeable but interesting to talk to about their beers. The brewery is called Harbor Light, . They have a huge beer list, some light snacks and they make their own orange soda!
This brewery was a great find for us and we highly recommend you visiting it when you get the chance. I found at least 6 beers that I sooooo want to make some donuts and beer marshmallows out of.
So all in all our Sunday Funday adventures were pretty solid. So until next time……
