The annual Taste the Passion weekend wine tour celebrates wine, chocolate and love on Saturday, February 5 & Sunday, February 6, 2011 at the wineries of the Leelanau Peninsula wine trail! The tour features special wine pours combined with tasty chocolate or savory pairings at Leelanau wine trail wineries between the hours of 11am and 5pm on Saturday, and Noon and 5pm on Sunday. Tickets for “Taste the Passion” are just $30 each and available online. There are many packages available as well!
February is a great time to visit Leelanau County and Traverse City – the tasting rooms are less full, affording you a chance to slow down and enjoy the wine and conversation with winemakers and winery staff. Many of the wineries also offer opportunities to enjoy winter’s beauty through cross-country and snowshoe trails. There is also a special Glen Arbor Art Association “Art from Wine Country” event at the Homestead Resort on Friday night (February 4th). This event is open to anyone – click the link for details.
