Last fall in late October, Lee Levitt took a solo cycling tour of the Leelanau Peninsula wine trail. His extensive article has been published in the tourism section of the Jerusalem Post. It captures the intimate feel of our tasting rooms in the off-season and is well worth a read:

I was on a solo cycling tour of the Leelanau Peninsula wine trail in north-west Michigan. The Ciccone winery, a few miles south of the arty village of Suttons Bay, is one of around 20 on the peninsula, which offers the greatest concentration of wineries in Michigan.
It sits on the 45th parallel that cuts through some of the world’s greatest wine-producing areas, including Alsace, Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, and is surrounded by lake water, giving it a moderate year-round temperature.
