The Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail’s annual Cellar Sale takes place in the tasting rooms the first two weekends of December

Planning to purchase for a wine lover this holiday season? Look no further than the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail. Twenty-three tasting rooms along the trail are participating in the annual no-cost event, scheduled for December 6 & 7 and 13 & 14, 2014.

Head out to Leelanau Peninsula and check off your shopping list when both wine and gift items are at the best prices of the year. In addition to gifts, local wine adds the perfect touch for holiday entertaining and taking to dinners and parties.

While shopping, stay for a while to taste wine and relax in the comfortable tasting rooms. Fires will be roaring and wine will be flowing from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday and from 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm on Sunday.
