What’s Happening in Northern Michigan: Rosé all May on Leelanau Peninsula
With spring weather, you never know if there will be rain or shine.
Courtney Sheffer from the West Michigan Tourist Association has the details in this week’s What’s Happening in Northern Michigan.
The Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail is kicking off their 2021 season with “Rosé All May:” a month-long event inviting you to explore the many rosé wines offered in the area. Once you buy your ticket, you’ll get a souvenir glass to take to any of the 21 wineries on the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail, and sample a glass of their rosé. You have all month to enjoy the various rosés, which range from dry to sweet, including both sparkling and still varieties. You’re welcome to make reservations ahead of time at any of the wineries you’ll be visiting to help allow for social distancing.
If you’re interested in checking out the work of local authors and poets, the Oliver Art Center in Frankfort is hosting their annual “Spring Read” next week on April 29th. They’ve invited local authors to share readings of their original works, all suitable for family audiences. They’ll be holding the reading virtually this year, and you can tune in via Zoom to enjoy stories, plays, and poems from regional authors.
If you’re interested in the lighthouses that surround Lake Michigan, you’ll want to pick up a copy of the new Lake Michigan Lighthouse Map and Circle Tour! Just released for 2021, it folds out to a poster-sized map of Lake Michigan, and shows all of the over-100 lighthouses you’ll find around the lake. This year’s map features Point Betsie Lighthouse on the cover, which is located in Frankfort, Michigan, and you can request a free copy by mail, or view the map digitally at WMTA.org.
