"Taste the Passion is a fabulous way to enjoy Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail during, what we refer to as our 'winter wonderland' season," shares Lorri Hathaway, Director of the LPVA.

The annual Taste the Passion wine tour event hosted by the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail (LPVA) is being held February 8 and 9, 2014. The event takes place from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Participants take a self-guided tour through the tasting rooms of 21 wineries along the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail. Each winery features a special wine pour paired with a small plate of regional gourmet fare. Guests can indulge on the ever-popular pairing of wine and chocolate as well as wine and other sweet and savory delights.

Often referred to as winter wonderland, Leelanau Peninsula is a fabulous region to visit during the winter months. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing through the vines in addition to other seasonal activities are part of the optional fun during the event.
