The Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail is hosting a new month-long event showcasing premium wines being made on the peninsula. Similar to the trail’s highly successful Rosé All May and Hunt for the Reds of October, Premium Pour offers a featured premium wine at 23 wineries along the trail for the entire month of December.

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

For $30 per ticket, participants receive a stemmed wine glass and a featured 2-ounce pour of a premium wine at 23 wineries (view the wine list below). The ticket is good every day during December.

“This is great way for guests to enjoy an event at their own pace,” shares Lorri Schreiber, executive director of the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail. “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 up on wines for holiday gifts and get-togethers.“

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