Leelanau Peninsula Vintners Association's is hosting a special weekend April 30 and May 1, celebrating its annual Spring Sip & Savor wine trail event. Special wine and food pairings will be offered at each of the wineries on the wine trail.
For added fun, event participants are encouraged to keep their pajamas on when they set out in the morning and try to win one of the prizes that many of the wineries will be offering. In addition to the pajama contest, this year we will be welcoming 'fancy hats' as part of the judging.
The Grand Prize grand prize will be two nights lodging at The Homestead in Glen Arbor during any season of the year (subject to availability), dinner for two with appetizers and desert at La Becasse in Maple City, Sunday brunch for two at the Bluebird in Leland and a wood fire pizza from Black Star Farms, perfect for lunch or light meal out on the trail!
As an added bonus, one person who votes for the Grand Prize winner will randomly be selected for a pair of tickets to Sip & Savor 2012. Individual wineries will also be offering prizes. For added fun, the event has established a Sip & Savor Sunday Secret Word that participants can learn on Saturday. If the call comes to the winery where you are on Sunday, be the first person to shout it out and you will win two free tickets to any Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail Event!!
Spring Sip & Savor has been designed to provide seasoned wine trail guests or first time visitors with a truly memorable experience that will allow them to celebrate spring, indulge their senses and learn more about Leelanau Peninsula wines. Most importantly it is an event that delivers fun!

Tickets are just $30 and include wine and food pairings at each winery, a limited edition LPVA glass coffee cup and a $10 gift certificate, that can be used at any LPVA winery!
