This Month's Featured Wine: Sohphia's Sunrise

This month's Niagara Wine Trail Theme is red wine. February is also National Cherry Month. Putting red wine, cherries and Valentine's Day together, Marjim Manor has selected Sophia's Sunrise as its featured wine.

It is named in honor of Sophia Willson Merritt, the woman for whom the house was built. Shubal Merritt wanted to please his wife and built her the mansion of her dreams. She found the plans on visit to her brother, Judge Hiram Van Vechton Willson, in Cleveland Ohio

Sophia's Sunrise is a cherry and grape blend. This rich wine blend envelopes your tongue in flavor. Hints of grape and cherry abound. The aroma has hints of sweetness and the color is a feast for your eyes. If you serve this wine as an appetizer, it would go well with cheese platters or cut up fruit. For your entrée, it pairs with ham, spicy beef dishes, Swedish meatballs and Waldorf Salad. As a dessert wine it is perfect with dark chocolate and cherry pie.

scrollGhost Host Workshops and Huntscroll

Join us for our interactive workshops as you learn the ins and outs of ghost hunting. The first two workshops explain the whys and hows, equipment and practices. The third class is an actual ghost hunt. Purchase the sessions separately or as a package.

March 18: Paranormal Basics and Classical Spiritual Communication

Television and movies don't explain the basics of paranormal investigation. In this session we will discuss some basic terminology, guidelines for safe investigation, and dive into the classics of spirit communication. Participants will get hands on work with dowsing, pendulums, glass swirling and other forgotten techniques to contact the spirit world.

April 15: Scientific & Modern Paranormal Investigation.

Adding science and technology provides an additional element of validity to our paranormal investigating. In this session, we will add a variety of equipment to our knowledge of classical spirit communication. As we learn how to use these tools, we will design an investigation. Using both the modern equipment and classical tools, we can learn about the spirit realm of Marjim Manor.

May 20: Live Ghost Hunt for Lewis Merritt

Lewis Merritt's death occurred on May 22nd. In this live investigation, we will put into practice all we've learned, hopefully finding evidence of Lewis' afterlife and the ghostly hauntings of others are the winery. Taking all of the knowledge gained from the previous two sessions, everyone will participate in this ghost hunt.

Join in the fun!

March 18 Class: $30
April 15 Class: $30
May 20 Ghost Hunt: $40
Package of all 3: $75
