Homestead Resort, Leelanau Vintners host special weekend wine-tasting packages
Toast the Season with The Homestead Resort and Leelanau Peninsula Vintners Association
Tour weekends planned for Nov. 6-7 and Nov. 13-14
Enjoy a weekend in Michigan's picturesque northwest lower peninsula touring 18 Leelanau wineries to celebrate the holiday season. Bring your friends and family for a self-guided tour of up to eight wineries each day. Wineries will pour a sampling of their best wine accompanied by a gourmet food sampling. The wineries will be decorated for the holidays to add to the fun and spirit of the season.
At your first winery stop you will receive a commemorative glass, a Leelanau Peninsula Vintner’s Association holiday ornament and a holiday gift bag featuring food from members of Sleeping Bear Gourmet, a group of local, fair trade and organic food producers.
The tours start at 11 a.m. on Saturday and noon on Sunday, ending at 5 p.m. each day. Wine tasting and lodging packages are $49.50 per person, per night based on double occupancy and include the tickets for a full weekend of wine tasting. Couples will receive two glasses, wine pours and food at each winery, but only one gift basket and ornament.
The Homestead is Northern Michigan’s largest waterfront resort community, located in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore – a unit of the National Park Service. Along with its unmatched natural setting and miles of frontage on Lake Michigan and the Crystal River, the resort offers guest pools, tennis and golf in the summer; downhill and cross country skiing in the winter; and shops, restaurants, meeting centers and the luxurious new Spa Amira throughout all four seasons.
