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.Use our Lake Leelanau vacation route planner to arrange your visit to 45 North Vineyard and other attractions in Lake Leelanau.

We have visited 45 North twice now and both times have come away with the same impression; clean, neat, contemporary, and delicious wines. There is a loft used for groups who wish to taste in a more p... more »

45 North seems to cater to the younger wine tasting crowd. It has a very modern feel with large beams, metal walls and fairly loud music. This was fine for us but I can see how it might turn off a cro... more »
Try the Peach Cremant! This place has expanded in the past couple of years to include a tasting area or group event area upstairs. They are in a beautiful location. They make great wines and the staff is very helpful and accommodating. They have a lot of cool items for souvenirs or gifts, and all of their wines can be purchased.
My favorite vineyard & the best wines. 45 red & 45 white are superb! Tasty ciders too. Friendly, energetic, & knowledgeable staff. Cool & relaxing environment. Love this place
I have been going to 45 North for years and it has been my #1 go to Winery. Sadly this year it didnt even make top 20. Very sad wine list, so sad we didnt even buy a bottle this year(nothing made us go wow) when i past years we would of had a case or more to take home.
Ice Wine is pure silky smooth scrumpdalitious!!! OK, that might not be a word but is is in my books. Holy cow!! Great atmosphere, enjoyed our visit.
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.
