Walt Churchill’s Market, 3320 Briarfield, Maumee, (419) 794-4000, will feature a visit from a very special winemaker 12:00 – 5:00 PM Saturday, June 1. Mac McDonald is two things that are extremely rare. He is an African-American winemaker and one of the finest producers of Pinot Noir in the entire world.
McDonald, the son of Texas Moonshiner, fell in love with Pinot Noir at the age of 12 when he tasted fine French Burgundy. Since 1997, McDonald has been producing wine under the Vision Cellars label. These are Boutique Single-Vineyard Pinot Noirs made without compromise in very small batches.
Walt Churchill’s Market will host an afternoon with McDonald and a selection of his limited production wines. The cost per person is $25.
