Four years ago I retired after 18 years in the Public School system in Mid-Michigan. I've been vacationing in the Leelanau Peninsula since I was a child so retirement here was a natural move. My grown children thought that I lost my mind as the move was quick and effortless. I've been to many wine events around the state and really thought I knew a lot about wine. I've been working in the wine industry since my retirement and joined the team at Laurentide over a year ago. I can tell you that my knowledge of wine wasn't really quite accurate. Learning the different varietals and regions, or aromas and tastes, that's when things start to get fuzzy for me. With the help of the crew at Laurentide I am learning more each day and enjoying wine with a new vision. While I miss my children and grandchildren so much, this wine gig is fantastic and life is good! Stop by Laurentide for a glass of wine and say hi!
