Rove Estate Vineyard and Winery, slated to open this spring, is the project of Creighton and McKenzie Gallagher. The couple’s Leelanau Peninsula location for their 2,000-square-foot tasting room is a 1,100-foot perch—making it the highest vineyard and tasting room in Leelanau County. A wraparound deck will allow visitors to fully take in the views.

Rove Estate, which is working with Coenraad Stassen and Brys Estate on Old Mission Peninsula to produce `its wines, will be available for special events.

Located in the heart of Michigan’s Thumbcoast, Port Huron boasts a charming small-town feel with big city amenities.

Aventri, a leader in events management software (EMS), recently released ‘The Top 100 Meeting and Event Venues in the United States’ for 2019. The company took the ten top-rated meeting and event cities in the United States and picked the top ten venues in each area, compiling a list of 100 highly-regarded spaces. 

The guide identifies the two most valuable factors in attendee satisfaction as venue location and activities in the host city, followed by capacity, uniqueness and proximity to local attractions.
