A Premier Leelanau Winery

Award-Winning Michigan Wines from the Leelanau Countryside

Surrounded by Lake Michigan and West Grand Traverse Bay, our grapes—our wines—reflect the unique terroir of northern Michigan.

A Leelanau Winery Inspired by Life in “The County”

A Leelanau Peninsula gem, French Valley Vineyard is home to some of the best wines Leelanau County has to offer. Located between the rolling hills of Central Leelanau County, amidst 75 acres of mature wine grapes, not only is French Valley a must-taste, it’s a must-see. In addition to grapes, French Valley grows 8 acres of tart cherries which we use to make our cherry wines and hay we harvest to feed livestock at our sister farm. The French Valley Family is a tight knit crew, with a deep appreciation for the land and its stewardship. When you stop be sure to ask about our new tasting room plans including an extensive outdoor patio, our fully restored Amish built, centennial event barn and the bat & bluebird houses tucked throughout the property. We love it here and know you will too.
