We always offer at least two wines for tasting free of charge; and feature paid tasting flights of 2 sparkling wines with small bites of food, costing between $7 and $15 depending upon the wines you choose.
Some of the wines we produce are available for sale only in our tasting room and here on the web, notably Sandpiper. Also, some wines are available only to our Fizz Club members; for information on joining, click FIZZ.
In 1973 we planted our first vines, and established our vineyards at the Elm Valley location in 1976. These vineyards have been increased until today the property is fully planted with about 20 acres of vines. Varieties we grow include pinot noir, vignoles, pinot gris, regent, riesling, chardonnay and pinot meunier. We also purchase significant amounts of chardonnay and pinot noir from other growers here on the Leelanau Peninsula for our L.Mawby wines. We source for M.Lawrence from Leelanau Peninsula, southwest Michigan and California.
Larry Mawby has been making our L.Mawby traditional method sparkling wines since our first sparkling winemaking in 1984. Since 2010, Mike Laing has been responsible for the M. Lawrence cuve close method sparkling wines.
