We invite you to explore the symbiotic relationship at our Artful Retreat on March 23, 2014. Your love of wine, art and food will serve as inspiration for a day of creative thinking and personal artistry. Grand Rapids artist Stephanie Schlatter will lead a 3 hour wine and art class (see more below) that will be followed by a four course artfully prepared meal presented by Chefs Jonathan Dayton and Stephanie Lee Wiitala.
