A Taste Of

Leelanau In Every Sip

Located in the beautiful fields of Leelanau Peninsula, the Gill’s Pier Vineyard and Winery offers award-winning wines in an exquisite atmopshere. From Cabernet Franc to Semi-Dri Riesling, our wines will delight your palate and fill your senses.

Villa Mari founder Marty Lagina made the (some would say) crazy choice to grow grapes that shouldn't grow in Michigan, with the belief that he could produce world class wines that otherwise couldn't be made here. So, true to his Italian heritage, he planted exotic varieties like Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and others.

Getting its French title from proprietor Lucie Matthies' middle name and paying homage to the French immigrants who settled in the area, Chateau Fontaine was a deserted potato farm and cow pasture when Dan Matthies discovered the property in the 1970's with its favorable south-facing slopes for growing grapes.

Short's Brewing Company is a great story about a man following his love of beer and music and making a living doing what he loves. Stop in for something to eat some great craft beer and even take the tour at the Bellaire Brewpub and Elk Rapids Production facility. Tours share the fundamentals of both facilities on Sundays by appointment only.

WaterFire is family-owned and run by Chantal and Mike, who live on the vineyard with their son. As an environmental scientist and wine lover, grape growing resonated with Chantal as a way to connect herself and others with the land.
