My Favorite: Shady Lane Cellars - For the coziest tasting room and best (new) patio head over to Shady Lane Cellars and enjoy a glass (or bottle) of their Coop de Rose. Their friendly staff and amazing wine will keep you coming back (we visited three times on our trip).
Best Tasting Room: Leelanau Cellars- You can't beat these views of the bay from the Leelanau Cellars tasting room or their incredible wine. I'm a huge fan of their Summer Sunset (rose) and Tall Ship Chardonnay that are perfect for summer.
Best Newcomer: Aurora Cellars- Aurora Cellars recently opened and after attending their grand opening event we were really impressed by their tasting room and great wine. Their semi-dry white wine Luminous is a great choice to enjoy on their patio while overlooking the vineyards.
Best White Wine: Boathouse Vineyards - Located on the Narrows in Lake Leelanau Boathouse Vineyards is my top pick for enjoying a glass of Dry Riesling. My sister and I love grabbing a glass of wine from the tasting room and watching the boats travel through the Narrows.
