The wine tonight comes from Fenn Valley in Fennville. Last year they celebrated their 50th anniversary. After researching the property and the process of winemaking, the site of the Fenn Valley Vineyards was purchased in 1973 by the Welsch family from Chicago. The 230-acre farm was originally a struggling fruit farm, which was cleared to make way for the vineyard. The first grapes were planted and Fenn Valley Vineyards was born. Growing grapes in Michigan to produce wine is not an easy task. The conditions must be perfect - sandy soil, moderate winter and summer temperatures, and rolling terrain to allow for natural airflow. Grape vines typically only survive in the Michigan climate for about 25 years, so the vineyard is constantly being replanted. However, with 50 years of experience, Fenn Valley is able to produce world-class wine, even in Michigan’s difficult climate. The red wines display a slight fruit forward note, the white wines are crisp, and the fruit wines are slightly sweet and refreshing.
We just brought in Knorr Sauce Mix Parma Rosa, a tasty sauce that's perfect for pasta, meats and fish. This cream sauce is made with tomato, Parmesan and Romano cheeses, garlic, herbs, and spices. This pasta sauce mix is perfect for weeknight dinners and other simple meals. Each mix makes 1 1/4 cups of homestyle sauce, great served with rigatoni, rotini or penne. This mix makes a rich and creamy sauce with a mouthwatering aroma of tomatoes. The Knorr chefs took the irresistible, classic Italian recipe and transformed it into this quick-to-prepare sauce that will take just any dish you can imagine to the next level. Arny will be preparing this main course along with our charcuterie and dolce.
