Local Wine Trail Takes Second Place Nationally

Aug. 28, 2019

The Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail has taken second place in a national poll conducted by USA Today and its travel site, 10Best.com, for Top Wine Region in North America. A panel of wine experts partnered with 10Best editors to pick the initial 20 nominees. The top 10 winners were then ranked by popular vote. The Finger Lakes Wine region of New York, which boasts three American Viticultural Areas and over 130 wineries, came in first. The Leelanau Wine Trail beat out wine trails and regions in California, Arizona, Washington, Texas and Virginia to earn second place.

Lorri Schreiber, executive director of the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail, said the honor reflects not only the Leelanau Peninsula wine industry but on the Michigan wine industry as a whole. The Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail consists of 28 wineries scattered throughout the Leelanau peninsula.
