Leelanau Peninsula Wine Country
Leelanau Peninsula Wine Country is located in Leelanau County of Michigan, the world-renowned fruit-growing region. This scenic wine region forms a peninsula between Lake Michigan on the west and Grand Traverse Bay on the east. The water that surrounds the region helps regulate the climate, which provides a great escape from late spring through the colorful fall season.
Leelanau Peninsula features many outdoor activities to complement your wine tasting and tours. Explore the many miles of hiking trails or test your sand climbing skills at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Take a ferry to the Manitou Islands or visit the quaint “Fishtown” at Leland where you can have lunch within the 140-year-old shanty-fishing village with its amazing views of Lake Michigan. Or test your luck with an evening of casino gaming at the Leelanau Sands Casino.
Leelanau Peninsula Wine Country offers many charming small inns and bed and breakfasts, all within close proximity of the Leelanau Peninsula wineries.
