Also features including such local ceebrities as Michael and Yancey Migliore of Whitecliff Vineyard, and Phyllis Feder of Clinton Vineyards, as well as an homage to Ben Feder of Clinton Vineyards for his lifetime of achievement, and many others were also within the 10 page feature story chockful of pictures!
