The Hunt for the Reds of October – Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail – Weekdays in October

Weekdays during October

$10 per person

Includes signature wine glass, a complimentary red wine pour at each winery and a $5 donation to the American Red Cross. Great wine for a great cause— It doesn’t get better than that!

Leelanau Peninsula has become well-known for its Riesling and other cool-climate white varietals and blends. What is often overlooked, however, are the high-quality red wines being grown in the region.

To help get beneath the surface, the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail hosts a fun event to explore and discover great red wines of Leelanau Peninsula. The Hunt for the Reds of October takes place weekdays (Monday through Friday) during the month of October.

For the entire month of October, your ticket gets you a complimentary pour at each of more than 20 participating wineries offering diverse red wines: big and bold Cabernet Francs and Merlots, aromatic and spicy Pinot Noirs and many more.

The bread pudding dessert at Side Door Saloon? Equally delicious and I took more than half home - figure it will be a great breakfast heated up with a cup of coffee!

If anyone is wondering about the portion size at Side Door Saloon for the lunch special ... let me show you ... and the brat is I’m pretty sure from Plaths (it was delicious) mashed red skin potatoes, sauerkraut & red cabbage too - with rye bread too ... it was just so much that I saved half for tomorrow.

Bruce Green lunch or dinner on Friday!

It’s white caps still there
