Leelanau Peninsula recently won “2nd Best Wine Region in North America” by USA Today, and its wines continue to garner more and more attention and medals each year in national, and even International, wine competitions. In fact, Black Star Farms even won “Best Riesling in the World” at the highly esteemed American Fine Wine Competition in Australia.

For $30 per ticket, participants receive a high quality, stemmed wine glass and a featured 2-ounce pour of a premium wine at 23 wineries. The ticket is good everyday for the entire month of December.

“This is great way for guests to enjoy an event at their own pace,” shares Lorri Schreiber. “Participants can enjoy several wines in a day or take the slower approach with one or two wines a day on any day that works for them. It’s also a great way to discover what all the fuss is about with the high quality of our wines. And, the timing couldn’t be better! It’s a great way to stock on wines for holiday gifts and get-togethers.“

Tickets are available online at lpwines.com or at most of the participating wineries.
