Ciccone Vineyard in Suttons Bay
Many wineries are thriving in the Leelanau Peninsula with the waters of Lake Michigan and Grand Traverse Bay tempering the climate. They prevent early blossoming and hold off the first frost and then the heavy snows protect the vines all winter long. The Ciccone Vineyard in Suttons Bay is a fun place to tour. Even in November, they are open Thursday through Sunday for tastings and tours. Tony Ciccone, the owner, is the father of the singer, Madonna, hence some of their wines have been so labeled. They have several gold and silver medal winners.
