Compliance and Safety Measures

Per the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, we are now required to collect first and last names, as well as cell phone numbers for everyone entering the tasting room for tracing purposes. Guests will be asked to sit at a designated seating area once served. If there happens to be no designated seating available outside, we ask that you wait until space becomes available, and then we will be happy to assist you in purchasing the beverage of your choice. If you visit our estate, masks are required for entry and must be worn anytime you are not at your designated seating area. Our team will also be wearing masks, and we have placed hand sanitizer stations throughout the property. It should be noted that we do not allow dogs on our property to ensure our visitors’ added safety. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we implement these compliances and safety measures.

Reserve Your Spot Today at Our Boutique Winery

Reservations are required for Paid Tastings and the Reserve Tasting Experience only. Paid Tastings are scheduled every hour on the hour. Once your reservation is up, you may purchase another glass of wine and enjoy the property outside the tasting room (as space and weather permits). Wines enjoyed by the glass outside on our Estate will not require a reservation and may be purchased at our outdoor bar.

Our Delectable Wine Tasting Selection

Our fine selection of wines is produced by fruits grown here on the Leelanau Peninsula. You’ll taste the difference. Whether you enjoy a glass of full-bodied red wine, or our seasonal ciders have sparked your interest, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at our winery. Our different wine types include the following:

Sparkling
If you’re looking to taste a variety of sparkling wine options, Aurora Cellars has you covered. Try one (or more!) of our classy, fun, and fizzy offerings for a light and fruity beverage you can enjoy no matter the occasion.

White
Our white wine tasting menu is full of award-winning options you’re bound to love. Whether you want to go with a high-quality, barrel-aged Chardonnay or a James Suckling-approved, best-in-class Riesling, you can’t go wrong with our white wine offerings.

Red
No matter if you crave the tart, elegant taste of Cabernet, or an airy and crisp Rosé is your go-to, we offer a comprehensive selection of red wines that are all worth trying. Our red wine tasting options range from sweet to dry – even spicy! We have a little something for every pallet.

Hard-Pressed Cider
If your taste buds don’t mesh well with wine, you’re in luck. Our high-end wine tasting vineyard also offers Michigan-grown heirloom apple cider and other seasonal varieties to exceed your satisfaction. Try them for yourself!

Wine Flights
Are you not exactly sure what you like or the type who wants to try it all? You can get the variety you want with our convenient and fun wine flights. You can select three or five wines to enjoy on our patio.

Wine & Chocolate Pairings
What’s the only thing better than wine? The answer is chocolate. You can have both with our wine & chocolate pairing flights! We offer locally made Grocer’s Daughter truffles to pair with our range of delectable wines. Be sure to treat yourself and ask for a pairing menu.
