In many wine regions of the world, aficionados can bike or hike between tasting rooms. But Michigan offers a novel vineyard-to-vineyard option: by ski and snowshoe.
A new 7.5-mile cross-country ski trail links two wineries and a cider house in the Leelanau Peninsula about 15 miles northwest of Traverse City. The route to Blustone Vineyards, Forty-Five North Vineyard & Winery and Tandem Ciders crosses orchards and vineyards in the fruit-growing region.
Calling all winter + wine enthusiasts! The New York Times hails the cross-country ski trail on Leelanau Peninsula.
