The Hunt for the Reds of October – Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail – Weekdays in October

Weekdays during October

$20 per person

Includes signature wine glass, a complimentary red wine pour at each winery and a $5 donation to the American Red Cross. Great wine for a great cause— It doesn’t get better than that!

Leelanau Peninsula has become well-known for its Riesling and other cool-climate white varietals and blends. What is often overlooked, however, are the high-quality red wines being grown in the region.

To help get beneath the surface, the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail hosts a fun event to explore and discover great red wines of Leelanau Peninsula. The Hunt for the Reds of October takes place weekdays (Monday through Friday) during the month of October. For the entire month of October, your ticket gets you a complimentary pour at each of more than 21 participating wineries offering diverse red wines: big and bold Cabernet Francs and Merlots, aromatic and spicy Pinot Noirs and many more.

We’re hoping to support some wineries this weekend!

The Old Mission Peninsula posted a photo of each winery and their hours. Does the Leelanau Peninsula have something similar by chance?

Thanks for all of your support and understanding. We wish each of you health and happiness during this difficult time. We also wish we could all be together, raising our glasses of Leelanau wine! Let's do it from afar - touch base with your favorite Leelanau winery and stock up on your supply! We'll all be back together again soon - promise. ... See MoreSee Less

I won tickets to any event from a contest in the winter. We were planning on coming for an upcoming event. Can I choose a different event in the summer/fall?

How can we help the wineries out in this time of need?

Due to the recent concerns of coronavirus, we’ve decided to cancel Sips, Chips & Dips on March 21 to help prevent the spread of the disease and for the safety of our guests, staff and community. Large crowds do not give our tasting room staff the ability to maintain our new cleanliness standards, which have been set in place in tasting rooms for the safety of our guests. If you have purchased tickets, they will be refunded accordingly. We appreciate your understanding! ... See MoreSee Less

Now this is exciting news! It's about time there was a decent pass that included the midwest and mom & pop resorts in the west! Mom & pops are my favorite places to ski these days. Now we just need a few more in the Rockies (and add Bogus Basin) and I'm in for sure!!!

Can the pass be used anytime, including summer?

Lutsen is on the map and worth the drive
