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.

Fun pairing alert to try this weekend!

Psst...when in doubt, just have s'more wine ; )

—with Aurora Cellars

Aurora Cellars
Try a Fun pairing for Memorial Day Weekend! It's time for S'mores (try this delightful cookie version). Yes, you can pair them with Aurora Cellar’s Medium Sweet Riesling (2016). Our wine has beautiful stone fruit aromatics with hints of minerality from the soil where it is grown on the Leelanau Peninsula. The fruit that was harvested had a perfect balance of sugar and acid. What a perfect burst of flavor when you pair these two!

S’mores Cookies
Ingredients:
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt, coarse
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup dark-brown sugar
1 large egg
Ghirardelli 60% cacao dark chocolate chips
Marshmallows, halved

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, pulse oats until finely ground. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt; pulse to combine. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, scraping down side of bowl. With mixer on low, beat in flour mixture just until combined.

2. Drop dough by tablespoons, 1 inch apart, onto two baking sheets. Top each with 4 chocolate chips. Bake just until lightly golden, 11 to 13 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Remove sheets from oven; heat broiler. Top each cookie with a halved marshmallow. Broil until marshmallows are lightly browned, watch closely. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool. Makes 24 cookies.
