What could be better than sitting outside on a warm summer day sipping a glass of wine and taking in the spectacular views of Grand Traverse Bay? We can’t think of much.
Early summer at the wineries brings the much-anticipated new releases from the prior year’s vintage, as well as several popular wine events. “Divas Uncorked” on the Old Mission Peninsula is a hugely popular girls-night-out “devoted entirely to women, wine, food and fun” each year in mid-June. Across West Grand Traverse Bay, the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail celebrates the season with its “Small Plates” event each August, pairing gourmet tapas with wine.
