Toast the Season along the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail

Leelanau Peninsula, Michigan (PRWEB) October 20, 2013

Leelanau Peninsula’s largest wine tour event, Toast the Season, offers a local food and wine pairing at 22 participating wineries along the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail. The self-guided tour, held the first two weekends of November, is an annual tradition that has sold out for the past three years.

“Toast the Season is a very popular event and a really fun tradition each year,” shares Lucie Matthias, vintner of Chateau Fontaine of Lake Leelanau, “and it’s a great way to toast to another successful harvest.”

This year’s event is November 2&3 or November 9&10 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $50 per person or $75 per couple and are available online at Tickets are very limited and will likely sell out soon.

Participants will receive a commemorative wine glass, a holiday ornament and a gift bag featuring Leelanau products and more. This year's products come from Cherry Republic, Cherry Bay Orchards and the Redheads. At each of the participating wineries, attendees enjoy a special wine pour perfectly paired with gourmet food to bring out the dynamic palette of Leelanau wine. The cool climate wines are particularly food-friendly, providing a great complement to both sweet and savory dishes.
