Peninsula Cellars is a family run winery located on the Old Mission Peninsula, just north of Traverse City, Michigan. The region lies along the 45th parallel, halfway between the north pole and the equator. This gives the region its distinct micro-climate, which makes it perfect for growing high quality wine grapes. We focus on white wine varieties, with Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and Pinot Blanc being our specialty. Our philosophy toward wine making has always been very minimalistic, allowing the regional expression of the fruit to come through. The sun, the rain, the wind, and the soil, all under the watchful eye of the grower, are what make our wines unique. – Description from john1

  • Insert your own size joke here. This past month magazine Hour Detroit published a story about the small network of wine shops in the Detroit area who carry bottles of wine bigger than the standard 750 milliliter containers.
