Silver Leaf Vineyard & Winery
An Artisan's Approach... We are dedicated to making wines that reflect the unique character and quality of our vineyard and the vineyards of Michigan. Whether carefully sourcing grapes from top sites in the state or from our own vineyard, our winery was built on the belief that great wines begin in the vineyard. We strive to understand the needs and opportunities presented by each specific terroir. We harvest when the flavors have reached their peak and the tannins are at their softest. In the winery, we apply an artisan's approach to winemaking, using taste and instinct, not formula to build our wines. Wines are barreled in either French oak or American oak depending upon the grape and what might be best for the particular vintage at hand. The commitment to crafting wines of distinction will remain at the heart of Silver Leaf Vineyard's philosophy. As our estate property continues to mature, the winery will continue creating exceptional wines. Our hope is that you'll grow with us.
Silver Leaf Vineyard & Winery is located just 3 miles north of Suttons Bay and 1 mile west of M22, 25 miles north of Traverse City on the Leelanau Peninsula. Our 22-acre estate is nestled among cherry and apple orchards where the vineyard is planted on high ground in rich loamy soil with a gentle slope and subtle breezes. The tasting room is located above the winery and opens to a deck through double sets of French doors where there are tree-top level views overlooking the vineyard and scenic Leelanau County.
