Wine Friday

Hat tip to  Keeping Up with the Joneses Wine Friday feature. I found another great wine, and I wanted to share.

A neighbor and church friend brings this wine to me from Michigan. After my second year, I’ve decided to go to the our wine store down the street and ask them to order it. It’s my understanding that Tennessee has stringent rules about shipping wine in. I don’t know if I can limit myself to once a year…it’s that good. It’s very sweet, almost like white grape juice. It’s very similar to another favorite of mine, Bug Juice, but it’s about $20 cheaper. Another great this is that the bottle is beautiful. You’ll see my bottle from last year featured at the top of my blog in the masthead image. Check out the winery: http://www.leelanaucellars.com/.

Year: Unknown

Origin: Omena, Michigan

Average price: $7.99

Wine notes from the vineyard: Our ever-popular table wine also known as “the wine in the blue bottle”, is very similar to a Piesporter in style and is light-bodied and semi-sweet. Empty blue bottles of winter white have been used in many craft and design projects or simply converted to a lovely flower vase.

Pairings: Serve with appetizers, including cheese and crackers or pair it with chicken or fish for a meal.

  1. You have just made me so proud! A wine form my home state!!! There are TONS of wines from this winery for sale at just about EVERY grocery store in town. They make a fabulous Cherry wine as well (since the Leelanau Peninsula is very close to Traverse City, which happens to be the Cherry Capital).

    I have wanted to take a summer trip up north (which is SO very gorgeous) to visit this winery…hint hint, wink wink. Perhaps you should come on up to the North and we can visit some phenomenal wineries!

    • Yummm…I’m so glad to hear that you know of this winery. A tour would be so much fun!!! I’ll have to order a case soon to hold me over. I think we can do that now in ole TN (ugh!).
