This annual weekend features a spectacular race through Leelanau’s vineyards followed by a self-guided wine tour of LPVA member wineries featuring world class wines and culinary delights that reflect the season’s bounty. The weekend’s festivities kick off at 9:00 am on Saturday morning at Ciccone Vineyard with the Harvest Stompede race. While race registration is not included with your wine tour ticket or in any way required, it’s considered one of the most unique races in the country – a great event for spectators. Race information.
The Harvest Stompede Wine Tour starts at 11:00 am on Saturday following the race (11:00 am to 6:00 pm) and continues on Sunday from 12:00 to 5:00 pm. Tickets are $40 and include a souvenir wine glass and a special wine pour and food pairing at each of 23 participating wineries along the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail. To highlight our region’s culinary excellence, each winery will be partnering with farmers and restaurants to feature local ingredients in their food pairings. Tickets & more information.
