C’est l’amour – of all things Riesling, that is – at Romancing the Riesling held each February around Valentine’s Day. This annual event celebrates "the grape that defines white wine" and the varietal for which the Northern Michigan wine region is best known. Attendees are invited to visit the ten distinct Wineries of Old Mission Peninsula to taste it's top Rieslings - of which recent awards include best in the world, and scores of 93+ points from other highly respected international reviews! Each wine is perfectly paired with a delicious small bite. Even before the first sip, the wine trail drive between the bays is romantic in itself, in every season.

Any additional questions can be directed to Chateau Grand Traverse at 231-223-7355.
