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.

This place was amazing! Our friends got married here over the summer, and it was absolutely beautiful. The staff were on top of things and really made it a fun experience. Not to mention, the wine was delicious!

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.
