Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail – Spring Sip and Savor – May 5 – 6, 2018

Spring Sip & Savor
As our vineyards awaken to the sun and warmth of May, toast to the enchanting beauty of spring, indulge your senses and discover delicious Leelanau Wines splendidly paired with scrumptious small bites! This beloved springtime event includes a self-guided tour along the trail, where you’re free to visit any of the 24 participating wineries in any order you choose on both Saturday (11-6) and Sunday (12-5). Tickets are limited and typically sell out, so get yours TODAY!

Ticket Information:
Tickets are $40 and include a souvenir wine glass, along with a featured wine and food pairing at each winery. After your featured pairing, most wineries offer an additional complimentary 2 to 3 tastes. Purchase your tickets 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.

Don’t want to drive? Find a willing friend and purchase an additional designated driver ticket for just $20. Your driver can still enjoy the food pairings while he/she takes you from winery to winery. You can also take your food & wine tour via bus or limo by contacting one of our transportation partners. We encourage you to contact them PRIOR to purchasing your tickets and a starting point. Find transportation packages that include your tickets or visit our transportation page for a complete list of our preferred partners.

Entertainment

Drew Hale Band

Time: 3-5pm
Influenced by Texas roots and artists such as Reckless Kelly and Eric Church, the Drew Hale Band’s music pays homage to the red dirt country and southern rock scenes, as well as paints a picture of their love for the people and culture of Michigan, where the band calls home. They have shared stages and played festivals with some of Nashville’s biggest recording artists, including Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Trace Adkins, Toby Keith, and more. You can count on an eclectic show that delivers a dynamic combination of originals and covers that bridge the gap between country, roots rock, and blues.

The Rock Show Band

Time: 5:30-8pm
Mirroring the look and bombast of Journey in its 1980s heyday, The Rock Show Band takes fans on a sojourn through the greatest hits of the Steve Perry era. The song list timewarps to the golden days of shoulder pads and leopard prints as the band loves, touches, and squeezes out all the greatest hits. Their flashy fun performances are sure to keep you on your feet all night!
