Spring Sip & Savor

Join us the weekend of May 6 & 7, 2017 for the annual Spring Sip & Savor wine trail weekend.

Saturday 11:00 to 6:00 pm
Sunday 12:00 to 5:00 pm
$35 per person

As our vineyards wake to the sun and warmth of May, enjoy delicious wine and food pairings at 23 wineries along the wine trail. Celebrate spring, indulge in your senses and learn more about Leelanau Peninsula wines. Most importantly, it’s really fun! Take the self-guided tour by visiting the tasting rooms in any order on Saturday from 11:00 to 6:00 pm and Sunday from noon to 5:00 pm. Tickets are limited and typically sell out, so get yours TODAY!

Ticket Information:
Tickets are $35 and include a souvenir wine glass and a featured wine and food pairing at each winery. After your featured pairing, most wineries offer an additional complimentary 2 to 3 tastes. Tickets are purchased by selecting a Starting Winery where you will check-in to the event and pick up your supplies before charting your own course to participating wineries in any order you choose. Tickets are good for both Saturday and Sunday. A $5 donation for every ticket sold goes to the Bruce Simpson Winemakers Scholarship to help students in their quest for a career in viticulture or enology in Northern Michigan.
