Nothing says summer like sipping wine and enjoying a farm-to-table meal in Northern Michigan. You can do just that this August at Leelanau Grown, the signature fundraising event for the Leelanau Children’s Center.

Plan a trip to Lake Leelanau’s stunning Aurora Cellars Winery & Vineyard on August 31 for a wine tasting and farm-to-table meal, all in support of the Leelanau Children’s Center in Leland. Leelanau Grown is the center’s key fundraiser which upholds its mission to nurture young children and families, and this year, Aurora Cellars is the flagship sponsor.

Nestled among the rolling hills and vineyard, the event will be held at the Estate Farmhouse right in the heart of Leelanau County’s wine country. Attendees will enjoy an evening of entertainment, Northern Michigan wine and spirits, and awe-inspiring views, while exclusive guests get access to the VIP Winemakers Circle tasting experience. 

Enjoy a specially catered dinner provided by Island Thyme Catering, award-winning Aurora Cellar wines, signature cocktails by Tonic & Lime, and hand-crafted mocktails by Audacia Elixirs. The VIP Winemakers Circle tasting experience begins at 5 p.m., leading to the main event at the Farmhouse from 6-9 p.m.
