What’s a Northern Michigan fall color tour without a stop for wine? All October long, go leaf peeping and taste red wines at 20+ wineries along the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail during Hunt for the Reds of October.

Northern Michigan is known for its stunning fall colors, and October is also the perfect time to try a vast selection of elegant and bold red wines while peak colors take over the region. Starting October 1 (excluding weekends), you can tour the Leelanau Peninsula for an exclusive wine tasting at 21 wineries during Hunt for the Reds of October. 

Enjoy epic autumn views and cozy up with rich and full cabernet sauvignons, velvety merlots and much more. Plus, you’re not locked into one set date! Those who join the tour can sip wine at their leisure, but it is recommended to make an appointment for a smooth visit.
