Join us for Taste the Passion – the SWEETEST event of the year!

Winter Wonderland is here, and there’s “snow” much fun to be had along the trail!

Tickets are $40 per person* for both days and include a souvenir wine glass and delish Leelanau wine and food pairings at each of 24 participating wineries. After your featured pairing, most wineries offer an additional complimentary 2 to 3 tastes.

Oh my god what was i thinking hiring these two....yes its wine , its in a bottle, we serve it!🙄

"I am not sure that is the right one and will it even fit?"

Isn't wine made of fruit? Why did we add more fruit?

Are you sure this was our secret ingredient?

Middle guy; “uhh, isn’t the really good stuff supposed have a worm in it?” Guy on right; “dude it’s not tequila!” Guy on left(in hushed voice); “I told you MF’s to act sophisticated!”

(middle) Do we go for some fruit or drink it from the bottle? (right) Looks good ! (left) I can't choose

What was I thinking, hiring these two? They act like they’ve never even tasted a glass of wine.

“Ok... Now how am I supposed to get this sangria in a bottle?”

“What the hell do you call this? It’s not Ripple.”

Guy 2 (black hat): This Riesling has a fruit nose of pineapple and a crisp finish. Guy 3 (white hat): How are the legs on it? Guy 1 (scratching his head): I knew I should have paid attention during the wine tour, but all I could think about was how delicious wine tastes....

Was ‘Tuesday’ a good vintage?

Are you sure this will make her happy

It says what?! Made in Napa? No way it can match Michigan made wine.

“Wait,,, what?!?!? That’s all there is to it?!? Awesome!!! Cool dude!!!”

Can you mix this with red sangria ?

Guess what guys, we can totally make a sangria using this wine. Now all we have to do is remember how to do it at home. Happy Wine Wife, Happy Wine Life

I thought you weren't supposed to mix booze with fruit...

Dude it says 1980...is it old? should I pitch it?

See, if we add the white to the red and throw in some blueberries, we got Trash Can Patriotic Sangria for the Fourth, dudes!

Red or White Sangria....decisions, decisions

Do we go off alcohol % or color of bottles??

Oh no, I ran my hand through my hair. I must wash my hands before returning to work.

Does that really say Snake wine? Do you think they will know the difference?!

If we add this bottle of wine to the sangria, do you think they’ll forget summer isn’t here yet?

I'd like to propose a toast... oh s#%t, this isn't my yard!

"Nothing wines like a Deere!"

I thought you said, "Pour some more cheer," not, "Mower is a John Deere."

Farmersonly.com profile, loves long rides on the mower, MI wine, and picnics. Looking for partner who I can share my love of plaid with.

On the next episode of Housewives of Leelanau County: Samantha mows the wine whilst sitting on a tractor.

I said "Dear lets take a ride and enjoy a glass of Riesling", He brought me the bottle and the keys to the John Deere.

Nothing Runs Like a Deer except for a Woman with Wine! It's a Ride & Wine Kind of Day in TC!

Nothing runs like a Deere unless it's a Good White, down my throat, on a hot summer day

You might be a redneck if...you drive your John Deer wine tasting from winery to winery.

It's not mow time, it's me time.

I never want to hear him wine about mowing the lawn again

Why, oh why, have I let my kids mow the lawn for years?!

I dont always mow the lawn, but when I do I always drink Leelanau Peninsula wine.

Mower is broke, yard half cut. Going to wine instead of whine. 😂

Fruit on the palette, fresh clippings on the nose.

Sunshine and wine, grass cuttin' time.

“Hey look at the time! It’s Wine o’clock! Stop, pop and pour!”

Wait, wait, I am almost ready to ride. Whose got the cooler, I want to keep this chilled for later!

Just mowed down another bottle of Leelanau Peninsula Fine wine to get me through the day 🍷 “CHEERS” from my Deere and Me!

This dear runs on one bottle of great wine per acre.

It is stressful doing yard work, everyone needs a break with a great glass of wine!

Taking wine tours to a whole new level!

When we're ready do chores on the Leelanau peninsula we get gas for the lawnmower and wine for us!!
