    Stopped at the first winery we found riding North from Traverse City. Really beautiful grounds and buildings. Did a 5 glass tasting and loved it. We were on bikes so they were pretty small sips and th...  more »

    We have double experience the happiest of Shady Lane: 1) in our exploration of the peninsula, Shady Lane wine ranks first for the Pinot Noir (right in front of Chateau Grand Traverse). This is the best we have tasted one of the other producers. We were not disappointed after a promising first noze: this wine has a length on the palate and a relative complexity that is not found elsewhere. Shady Lane also offers an original Assembly "franc ' only franc" very nice. The producer obviously mastered the cultivation of the vine and wine production and the results are up. Also the prices are quite reasonable. (2) we have also spent a delicious day and evening at a wedding. What a wonderful idea to hold a ceremony in this place, wave barycenter of Texas, Iowa, of Singapore, Normandy and Aquitaine where families were converging. The bucolic site has lots of charm and the staff is perfectly pleasant. Conclusion: If passing through the region, you only have a vineyard to test, go to Shady Lane, you'll find the best of local production.

    This place has the best tasting room outside. Gorgeous! The wine was great and the cheese/meat tray was delicious. We had young kids with us and they played corn hole.  more »

    Nice location that is easily accessible from the bike trail. Friendly and knowledgeable staff were able to talk in detail about the wines. Tasting samples were on the small side but full glasses were a good value. Meat and cheese plates were also good.

    A must stop when making a wine tour in Leelanau county. Some of the better reds in the area and offer some amazing project wines.

    Great location, but wine tended to be on the dry side. We tend to prefer more sweet.

    I love this winery's location! They have a beautiful outdoor area with bonfire pit, seating, outside bar for tastings, and cornhole. Their wine is pretty good, I usually leave with one or two bottles to take home.

    Shady Lane's may be one of my favorite new wineries in the area. The outside is amazing and it includes a fireplace, outside tasting bar, lawn games, and several outdoor seating spots. The wine is good, not great, but the location is relaxing and worth a visit.
