Verterra means 'true to the land' and our estate grown fruit is used to produce elegant red, white, rose and sparkling wines that embody the essence of the Leelanau Peninsula.
We are a family-owned business focused on creating exceptional wines from estate grown fruit on the spectacular Leelanau Peninsula in Northwestern Michigan. Our journey started in 2006 with a dream. We planted our first 1.5 acres of grapes in our vineyard affectionaly known as 'Frost Pocket.' From that point forward, we were hooked; and today we have 40+ acres of fruit which we grow as we do not import grapes from other regions of the US. All of our our wines are fruity, lively, balanced and exciting.
In 2017, 2018 and again in 2019 we had the honor to win the Best Dry White wine in the State of Michigan. Twenty five judges awarded Verterra Winery the top award. In over thirty-five years of the Michigan Wine Competition no winery has won Best Dry White in consecutive years, let alone in 3 consecutive years. Come taste the essence of pure Leelanau Peninsula wines in our Leland Tasting room one block from the sandy shores of Lake Michigan.
