Tucked away, on a ridge between Lake Michigan and Lake Leelanau we discovered a vineyard among the hardwoods. In 2013 we had the pleasure of making our first Grüner Veltliner from this hidden vineyard and 2016 was a beautiful vintage to follow it up. The fruit was hand harvested, destemmed and pressed. The slow, steady month long fermentation produced flavors and aromas of crisp Asian pear, citrus, green tea and minerality. An expressive cool climate white that pairs nicely with light summer fare, seafood, poultry and shellfish.
