The 2012 Spring Sip & Savor on the Leelanau Peninsula wine trail will be this weekend, May 5 and 6. This annual celebration north of Traverse City features food and wine pairings at the 19 wineries along the trail. In honor of Cinco de Mayo the wineries will be participating in the Sip-o de Mayo Hat Contest; a fun opportunity to show off your best hat and win prizes including a fantastic Michigan Wine Coast getaway.
Each winery will offer an award for their chosen category of hat and have prizes from wineries and local businesses. The Grand Prize winner awarded by popular vote of participants will receive two nights lodging at The Homestead in Glen Arbor, complete dinner for two at La Becasse in Maple City, Sunday brunch for two at the Bluebird in Leland, a wood-fired pizza from the Hearth & Vine Café at Black Star Farms and a pair of tickets to any Leelanau Peninsula Vintner’s Association (LPVA) tour or the Traverse City Wine & Art Festival.
