Opened in 2016, from atop the most northern ridge in the Leelanau Peninsula, The Ridge at Verterra Winery will assist you to mark life’s most special occasions.
Ceremonies and celebrations are held among vines, where grapes for Verterra Winery's award winning wines are cultivated. The backdrop beyond is panoramic views of hardwood forests and blue waters of Grand Traverse Bay & Lake Michigan, surrounded by 8 acres of Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Malbec, & Chardonnay grapes.
What was once a simple centennial cherry orchard has, over the past 10 years, been lovingly transformed into a working, European-inspired vineyard. Less than an hour from Traverse City, this Leelanau getaway is a serene oasis in one of the areas most desirable spots. Verterra prides itself on providing service that’s highly personalized. We develop a relationship with you that starts before the site tour, and continues after your event. With solid expertise in planning weddings, as well as in wines and wine making, it’s no surprise that we are taking an integrated Wedding and Wine Experience approach.
In addition to the spectacular water views and the beautiful vineyards, a newly constructed facility designed for ultimate guest comfort include indoor bathrooms, indoor catering facility, bridal lounge, stone terraced outdoor ceremony amphitheater with a water fall and pond, all to accommodate weddings and private functions for up to 300 guests.
