If you enjoy sparkling wine you will definitely enjoy your visit here. For our British taste buds, some Michigan wines are too sweet, but here they have a range that (I suggest) meets all needs. Whilst it is nowhere near as comprehensive as the cellar tours in the larger Champagne houses, you do get a chance to assess which wines... More

We've been planning our "up North" retreats to include Mawby's for years now, and we stock up as much as possible for the winter with their wines. Unfortunately, you can only fit so many cases in a car..... The staff is awesome, very helpful in picking wines to taste, and the tasting of 2 glasses and pate or cheese is... More

We visited 6 wineries while on the Leelanau Peninsula and this was our favorite overall experience. L. Mawby has sparkling wines only, which we found unique. Friendly service from the moment we walked in and a complimentary tasting. It was just $9 to get two full glasses of any wine we wanted, plus some crackers and goat cheese. We sat... More

They have my absolute favorite wines in Michigan. I wish they had a little different set up for tastings, but overall its very fun place to go and has amazing wines. For $10 (more I believe if you do the other line) you get two classes and spread. The spreads change - we had a goat cheese and a pepper... More

I've never been to a winery that specializes solely in sparkling and bubbly wine before, and I was not disappointed! The man who poured our samples was EXTREMELY knowledgeable; I now know more about bubblies than I ever expected to learn. I'd suggest the Blanc de Blancs if you prefer dry, or Sandpiper if you like something sweeter. Definitely spend... More

I LOVED this place. I am a huge sparkling wine fan and that is what they do here. They have everything from sweet to dry. I must admit I am more of a Brut fan myself and wasn't anticipating such a large selection from Northern Michigan. We did tastings and more tastings and ended up walking away with 8 bottles... More

If you are someone who loves sparkling wine, this is your must-do stop. We visited on a Thursday afternoon and enjoyed a quiet tasting room and plenty of good advice from our server. Two free tastings are offered, then you can select additional options with or without a food pairing too. The herbed goat cheese and cracker pairing we chose... More
