Fair Theme – Down on the Farm

Peninsula Cellars is a family run winery located on the Old Mission Peninsula, just north of Traverse City, Michigan. The region lies along the 45th parallel, halfway between the north pole and the equator. This gives the region its distinct micro-climate, that makes it perfect for growing high quality wine grapes.

Raftshol Vineyards is a small family winery located on Michigan’s scenic Leelanau peninsula. Warren Raftshol, the owner and winemaker, was one of the pioneers to grow red vinifera grapes in the area. The oldest vines are over 20 years old and since 1999 Raftshol Vineyards has been producing quality Bordeaux-style wines, meads and ice wine.

In March of 2013 Richard Fortune became the proud new owner of Shady Lane Cellars. Rich is originally from Indianapolis, Indiana and he and his family have been visiting Leelanau County for over 50 years.

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.

You’re away from everyday stressors and pressure…at the edge of the water, with people you enjoy and doing what you want. You are relaxed, maybe enjoying a sunset or the sand between your toes. Just add a glass of Skipping Stone Cellars wine to make it perfect.

A refreshing modern expression of the world's most ancient fermented drink.
