" Winemaker Bryan Ulbrich has been in the business since 1993, starting out as a low-level, part-time employee. He soon realized that this career was much more appealing than his intended Political Science major, and pursued a winemaking apprenticeship. In 2004, he was given the opportunity to purchase a failing local vineyard. He and his wife Jennifer successfully harvested a small crop that year, producing a single dry Riesling, and Left Foot Charley was born. Now based in the former Northern Michigan Asylum for the Insane, Left Foot Charley has teamed up with local growers to produce some of Michigan's finest wines. On Friday, september 5, 6pm, we'll pair some of our great house made cheeses with selected flights of Left Foot Charley wines. Please join us!"

Modern-day distilled rum dates from the mid-1600s, although beverages made from fermented sugar have been around for centuries longer. Come join us this September at Cornman Farms as we celebrate the role of rum in American history and in classic cocktails. We will discuss the history of rum in the Caribbean and colonial America and its evolution into the many variations of rum we enjoy today. We will examine and mix three quintessential rum cocktails: Rum Punch, the Daiquiri, and Hot Buttered Rum, each featuring a distinct version of the liquor. We will also be serving some fabulous fall appetizers that will pair perfectly with any rum drink.
Sorry, this event is already full. Get on the waitlist!
