We did our tasting with Andrew. He was knowledgeable about the wines as well as attentive. The winery is cute inside and has a beautiful copper top tasting bar. The dry riesling was a highlight as well as the bubble cerise.

One of the best winery’s I’ve visited. Ben was so knowledgable and friendly. Their wines are exquisite and I look forward to returning.

So glad we turned around after passing this lovely winery! Mary was so engaging and fun. She was very knowledgeable about wines and happy to spend lots of time with me, my husband and daughter during our tastings. We are looking forward to enjoying our purchases while reminiscing about the great time we had here! Thanks so much Mary!

We were "Up North" MI on vacation, taking a day for our annual "Leelanua Wine Tasting Tour". Although we've been here before, it had been a couple of years or more since visiting Laurentide. We were the only ones in the place last Tuesday as Kathy ("with a K") was working behind the tasting bar, as well as serving as our "gracious host". It had been two years since I had tasted the fantastic "Late Harvest Sweet Riesling" Laurentide had in 2016 when we last visited. I fell in love all over again, as this is one of the BEST you will find anywhere on the planet. As other reviews mention, their focus on great tasting white wines shines over many of the other 30 or more wineries that now encompass this peninsula. Kathy was so pleasant and just terrific to share this experience with. So very knowledgeable, helpful in the tastings, and just so personable! She greeted us with an infectious smile from the time we walked in until we left over 90 minutes later. We were fortunate to have her to ourselves this entire time. The place is much the same as my wife and I remembered it, with a bit more artwork now, some outstanding pieces (for sale) adorn the walls and tasting room tables. You must make Laurentide Winery one of your "top stops" when touring the area. All of their wines are worth stopping for!

We visited Laurentide the first time in 2014 and immediately joined their Club so we could get their wines in South Carolina. These are excellent wines, the best of which stand up to anything coming from California, Oregon or France. On this trip, our third or fourth, we booked the private vineyard tour with the owner. If you really love wine and care about the farming aspect of winemaking, this is an experience you shouldn't miss. Take the tour, drink the wines, join the Club. Thank you Raymers for your dedication to creating great wines and experiences.

Thank you for your kind review. Bill, myself and staff appreciate your thoughtful feedback. We all work hard to educate all our customers about not only our wines but the place they are grown in a fun and interactive way through tasting and vineyard tour. We want our experience to stand out and look forward to your return visits in the future! Best regards, Susan Braymer & staff

With a friendly and knowledgeable staff, Laurentide makes a great place to stop on the wine trail of the Leelanau Wine Trail. The 2012 Riesling, 2012 Chardonary, 2012, Pinot Noir and the 2012 Emergence are my favorites. The cherry wine is great as a stand alone or as a spritizer or in BBQ sauce. Try all of them as you may have a different favorite. The chocolates are out of this world and the bread is great. The wine glasses are simple and elegant and would make a wonderful addition to your collection. Beautiful tasting room with outside seating area. Some books are available for purchase and I recommend the wines of Michigan as it has wonderful recipes. Not a lot of fluff just a whole batch of good wine. Be sure and say hello to Rosie the dog.

Who would have thought I could leave the Kim Crawford behind and fall for a Michigan Sauvignon Blanc? Less acidic than my old standby, but with a wonderful finish that left me wanting to buy a lot and drink it all. Don't miss the other dry whites and git the oak aged Pinot Noir at the end. Fun folks with lots of information and even a place to sit, sip and read about the French approach to making wine.

A nice tasting room run by very friendly and knowledgeable people. Not a bad wine in the place. There is something for everyone's liking if you are a wine drinker. They have a lovely outdoor seating area for sipping wine. A lot of history is available about wines both from the owners and the books they have. They also have art work by local artists which rotates through the year. They also have a few wine related items for sale but it is not cluttered as if they were in the nick nack business, they put their efforts into their wine. While they are new they have done an excellent job in creating great wines and a relaxing atmosphere. You MUST stop by.

we went here just a little too late one day after another couple we met recommended them for their red wines so stopped in next day for a full tasting.. I didn't catch the man doing the tasting but he was a very pleasant bearded fellow who remembered us from the night before. we came with the intent of getting reds based on what the other couple said but we weren't impressed with them but we fell in love with the Sauvignon Blanc very much like a New Zealand one ( which I love !) the 4 of us walked out with four bottles of that and no reds.. oh well still a win -win for us and the winery
