Fenn Valley Vineyards

This award-winning vineyard is great for wine-tasting on its patios and also hosts events like cookouts, wine festivals, and live music. Fenn Valley Vineyards, in an unprecedented ruling, was awarded a double-gold medal; it was selected unanimously by two separate judge panels on the East and West Coasts of the United States for a gold medal in wine taste. Their trademark slogan is “The Lake Effect Everyone Loves,” playing off the phrasing that usually describes the weather that the Great Lakes environment creates. The Vineyard also hosts Nouveau Fest, a December 3rd event in which the newest flavor of wine is revealed.
