When our family stepped into the world of grape growing and winemaking, we focused on one thing above all else – staying 'true to the land.' Seven years later, we are proud to offer our hand crafted, family made red, white and fruit wines, which we feel embody the essence of what the Leelanau Peninsula can provide.Plan your Verterra Winery visit and explore what else you can see and do in Leland using our Leland online route builder.
While our offerings may change from year to year based on the growing season and the availability of superlative fruit, our philosophy will not. Our favorite wines from Alsace, Burgundy, Mosel and the Rhine will serve as a guide, however Verterra reflects as clearly as possible our native Leelanau County roots.
We hope that you enjoy consuming them as much as we did producing them. Cheers!

By far, the BEST winery in Northern Michigan. Paul knows his grapes and his products reflect his knowledge. We toured all of Mission And Leelanau peninsula - no comparison to taste or quality. Staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable. But proof is in the exceptional tasting wines and sparkling wines. We did not sample the hard ciders on this visit, but will definitely return. We were so impressed, we joined their wine club. And “must experience “ if you are doing the wine tours.
Wine was delicious. We tasted just about everything. Bottles are slightly higher priced than most of the other wineries we hit. Staff was above average though. Of course we will be back.
