Tasting Fees

As you make your way along the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail, you’ll find unique experiences at each of the 26 wine destinations. Tasting rooms ranging from small and rustic to large and modern await your arrival.

Like the experiences, tasting fees also vary along the trail. Some wineries do not charge a tasting fee while others charge a minimal fee, sometimes including a souvenir wine glass good for future complimentary tastings. Regardless of the tasting arrangements, you’re sure to enjoy each tasting room for its own unique attributes. As you sip our wines and chat with the laid-back, hardworking winemakers who produce them, we are confident you’ll find many new wines to love.
