"Six years, 33 planted acres, a slew of Best-in-Class awards later, Verterra is producing some of Leelanau's top bottlings"
- Traverse, Northern Michigan's Magazine January 2014
When our family stepped into the world of grape growing and winemaking, we focused on one thing above all else – staying 'true to the land.' We are proud to offer our estate grown, hand crafted, family made red wine, white wine, fruit wines and hard apple based ciders which we feel embody the essence of the Leelanau Peninsula.
While our offerings may change from year to year based on the growing season and the avaiability of superlative fruit, our philosophy will not. Our favorite wines from Alsace, Mosel, Burgundy, Bordeaux and Napa will serve as a guide, however Verterra reflects as clearly as possible our native Leelanau County roots.
