This year's Great MGGA Harvest Social will be held at Fiore Winery in Harford County, Noon Sat. Oct. 14. This is a very informal gathering where growers and winemakers get together to share some of their wine, discuss the great harvest or commiserate about the dud. Mike Fiore, always a great story teller, will tell us the story of his winery and distillery. The Great Harvest Social is definitely a treat not to be missed.
