Date:7/31/2014

Leelanau Peninsula, MI (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

The vineyards are lush, and the grapes are plumping up in preparation of the upcoming harvest. And, to celebrate, folks are gearing up for the annual Harvest Stompede held Saturday and Sunday, September 6 and 7, 2014 along the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail.

Kicking-off the weekend festivities is an optional walk or run through the vineyards start-ing at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday at Ciccone Vineyard & Winery in Suttons Bay. A unique course between rows of grapevines offers an experience like no other for runners, walkers and spectators alike. The race is designed for both serious and recreational runners and walkers with options for a 5K walk, 5K run or 7-mile run.

“It’s our favorite event of the year,” shares Tony Ciccone of Ciccone Vineyard & Winery. “It’s exciting to see all those people race through the vineyards in celebration of the new vintage.”

Following the race, 23 participating wineries each offer a wine and food pairing featuring fresh, local ingredients. Tasting hours for the self-guided tour along the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail are 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Tickets for the Harvest Stompede wine tour are $40 per person and are only available in advance and routinely sell out. Get tickets and lodging packages at http://www.lpwines.com/harvest.
