There are several reasons you shouldn't miss this event at McEchran Winery in Caledonia this Saturday (September 22), but there's one to love more than the rest.

I really do wish more retail experiences could be had while we had wine in our hands. It's for that reason that I rarely miss events like this one. On Saturday, September 22nd, McEchran Winery on Wyman School Road in Caledonia is hosting a 'Fall Sip & Shop' event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with the help of Daddy's Grill Events.

There will also be plenty of food served by Savino's Brick Oven Pizza. I'm sure your home needs some new Fall decor. Plus it's never too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts.

This wouldn't be a bad time to take a look at several winery trips. You'll find a few more in the Rockford area here. There really isn't anything better than the Summer to Fall change and to experience it with great wine makes it even better.
