Wine Works

. June 30, 2014.

A day as well-rounded as a ball of yarn awaits you at the biannual Sandhill Crane Vineyards Wine & Wool Festival. Sample wines from the vineyard, view yarn and fiber spinning demonstrations, browse vendor booths, grab lunch at Crane Café, bring your knitting and spend a relaxing day with like-minded friends. Event organizer and Vineyard Executive Director Heather Price explains, “I'm a knitter and spinner so it seemed logical to pull my two worlds together.” Local yarn shop, The Dropped Stitch, co-sponsors the event.

Saturday, July 26. 10am-6pm. Free entry and wine tasting. Sandhill Crane Vineyards, 4724 Walz Rd., Jackson. 517-764-0679. sandhillcranevineyards.com
