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.
Ever wonder what Grand Traverse Bay and Lake Michigan looks like from the last highest Ridge in the Leelanau Peninsula? Guess no longer. Come visit the Ridge.
The Ridge will be open for tastings this summer June 24 - August 6th from Noon to 7 pm. Please see closed exceptions under the Ridge hours later in our website.
The Leland Tasting Room will be open Noon to 7pm Monday through Saturday and Noon to 6pm on Sundays for the summer of 2020.
