Chateau de Leelanau is on the front end of a fast growing wine industry in Michigan on the Leelanau Peninsula. Owner & cardiologist Roberta Kurtz, began the vineyard & winery out of a special love for Michigan agriculture. The vineyard and winery was founded in 1990 in Suttons Bay, Michigan, just north of Traverse City. As a cardiologist, Roberta knows about the benefits of wine for the heart. We specialize in European vinifera and hybrid grapes, several of which are rich in anti-oxidants. Veteran winemakers John Fletcher and Vera Klokocka combine their craft with a love for the vines, a desire to let the grapes speak for themselves, and a passion for expressing over a dozen styles of wines for you to enjoy. Their experience in cold-climate varietals is reflected in numerous award-winning vintages. Our wines have been recognized for their quality, freshness and complex allure with a continuing series of awards since the first vintage in 1999. Recent Honors include medals at the Michigan Wine and Spirits Competition. Visit our Suttons Bay Tasting Room just off of M-22 at Hilltop Corners- 5048 S. West Bayshore Drive or our Frankenmuth Tasting Room across the street from River Place Plaza- 976 S. Main Street. Phone number for our other tasting room on our website.
