We planted our first vines in 1973 and established our vineyards in 1976. We exclusively produce sparkling wine using both the traditional method (bottle fermented) and cuve close (tank fermented) methods. L. Mawby wines are traditional method sparkling wines produced entirely from Leelanau Peninsula wine grapes. M.Lawrence wines are cuve close sparklers produced from Michigan and other wine grapes. Our tasting room is open to the public and our hours very depending on the season. May - Oct: Monday - Saturday, 12-6pm and Sunday, 12-5pm. Nov. - Apr: Wednesday - Sunday, 12-5pm.

Truly an entertaining tasting experience. The sparkling wines, which are all of their wines, were quite nice. (Not a big sparkling fan.) In a competitive area such as wine tasting, the experience sells return trips, as well as the wine. This customer experience was a...More

We hadn't been here for 30 years. Interesting, entertaining, and helpful staff. Loved that they only produce sparkling wines. Delicious choices. The wines made up for lack of ambiance.

Super fun place. You get two complimentary samples of the sparkling wines. Fizz was my favorite. Everyone here was cheerful and friendly. Food is offered her, to sample with your sparkling wines.
