45 North Vineyard, Lake Leelanau

Categories: Wineries & Vineyards, Food & Drink
Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web
Located squarely on the famed 45th parallel, 45 North uses its distinct location as the driving force behind its approach to crafting world-class wines that represent the region. Using grapes from estate and regional vineyards, everything is hand-crafted on-site with the ultimate goal of producing the most approachable, elegant wines possible. Aside from red and white varietals, they also make a variety of fruit wines sourced from locally-grown fruits like peaches and strawberries as well as experimental dessert wines such as 45 Gold, a bourbon-barrel-aged apricot wine. The rustic, post-and-beam barn nestled in the trees next to the vineyard sets the scene for an unforgettable tasting experience accompanied by warm-weather activities like bocce ball and live music, and cross-country skiing during the winter.

  • Great wines and wonderful staff! We hosted our cocktail hour for our wedding here in their outdoor spaces, and all the guests had a great time! A perfect taste of Northern Michigan wines. Wouldn't have had our cocktail hour anywhere else! Planning and coordinating with them was very easy.
  • One of my favorite Michigan Wineries! Don't miss this stop on your Leelanau Winery tour!!
