    Hi Jim, thanks for your comment. I have interactive maps on my website now including one of all the wineries. I also will be collecting all the press release information I can get from each of the wineries for upcoming activities and posting it every week. As I now have a link on my site to your winery , could you add one to me on your site? Also, if you send me any special events info for Water’s Crest winery I will post it on my blog with a link back. Hope you are enjoying MDW; what perfect weather!
