The meal will be accompanied by seven wines from Alpena winery Stoney Acres Winery. Stoney Acres Winery, a small boutique winery, was established in 1999 in Alpena, Michigan. The business began by providing equipment and ingredients for the home beer and wine maker while the signature wines were being carefully produced from fruit grown by local farms.
In January 2003 the wines were introduced to the public in the tasting room located within the winery. Beginning with the Silver City Red (Merlot) and Silver City White (Riesling) in the grape variety and the Apple, Blueberry, Strawberry and Raspberry in the fruit varieties the wines were well received.
The cost for the Elk Viewing-Gourmet packages begins at $234 per person for a double and a lower price is available for a quad. The package includes the elk viewing sleigh ride, gourmet dinner and wine tasting, two nights deluxe lodging, two full breakfasts in the Clubhouse Grill and winter activity passes including cross country skiing, snowmobiling and nearby ice fishing. (equipment rental extra).
