Leelanau County vineyards, apple orchards, and hop farms continue to provide crops needed to keep a steady stream of sipping visitors happy.
And there’s more for thirst quenching as county distilleries, wineries, cideries and craft breweries tastefully blend Leelanau’s agricultural and entertainment interests.
The wineries have formed the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail — which is actually three wine trails broken into loops given the names of Grand Traverse Bay, Northern and Sleeping Bear.
The organization’s director is Lorri Hathaway.
The region’s cool-climate wines are consistently judged among the best, and dominate state wine-tasting contests. The Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail offers a world-class touring experience when blended with our county’s beautiful scenery.
“I’m so proud of our hardworking winemakers and look forward to continued success at producing award- winning wines on Leelanau Peninsula.”
— Lorri Hathaway, upon learning that Leelanau vintners brought home 100 awards and four of eight Best of Class awards in the 2016 Michigan Wine Competition.
