Fenn Valley Reports “Great Year for Reds”
August 12, 2012
In his always informative newsletter articles (yes, Fenn Valley still sends a paper newsletter), Doug Welsch of Fenn Valley Vineyards in Michigan, reports modest crop losses this year. He is also very optimistic about the quality of the 2012 red wine harvest. His article also contains graphic photos showing the difference between how young and old vines handled the heat of ’12.
