Fenn Valley Vineyards
Maximizes the Lake Effect
Our vineyard topography locates us at higher elevation than the surrounding land. Because it's slightly sloped, denser cold air drains off on frost-prone nights. Natural air drainage of the ridge extends the growing season, making it possible to fully ripen grapes in our "lake affected" cool climate.
