Leelanau Peninsula is a cool-climate wine region nestled between Lake Michigan on the west and Grand Traverse Bay on the east. The lake effect of these nearby waters helps moderate temperatures in the region, which experiences cold springs and warm fall weather, allowing the grapes to benefit from a longer growing season. Well-drained, sandy loams in the soil also allow for vines grown on the Leelanau Peninsula to be deeply rooted. Leelanau Peninsula wines are typically clean, crisp and balanced, exhibiting real varietal character.
