Our wines exemplify the qualities found in the rich terroir and crisp climate of Michigan and her many lakes. The location of our vineyard was carefully selected for not only its pastoral views, but for the soil quality and topography. Our vineyard produces grapes worthy of making award-winning wines. We look forward to sharing them with you.
Visit our new tasting room at the Vineyard Inn, just minutes north of downtown Suttons Bay to drink in the atmosphere and enjoy wines produced from our family owned, sustainably farmed vineyards and orchards.
Each wine is estate produced showcasing both the unique terroir of Leelanau as well as our winemakers dedication to crafting exceptional wines.

Owner Dr. Stephen Kozelko , a Traverse City / Leelanau county native , warmly welcomes you to the tasting room.
We are proud to be among the wonderful wineries of Leelanau Peninsula. Our family owned estate winery is on the west side of Lake Leelanau overlooking scenic French Valley.
Once upon a “vine” there was a sweet couple who met and fell in love. Along with their love for each other they grew to love the land in Leelanau County. Together they have built many successful businesses. French Valley Vineyards, a 75 acre property with acres of productive grape vines and cherries just off French Road in Cedar, is the latest of their collaborations to come to fruition.
They do plan to construct a tasting room onsite at the vineyard location but until then...they wanted to be able to share the award winning wines they have been able to produce over several vintages.
The French Valley Vineyards Tasting Room at The Vineyard Inn is the perfect example of their ability to work together, to produce award winning wines and to provide a unique atmosphere with awe inspiring views, great food and the perfect back drop for many happy memories.
Who knows? Maybe you will find love with a visit to Leelanau County. For sure you will fall in love with French Valley Vineyard Tasting Room at the Vineyard Inn. After all, this location has been host to many "I do's" over the years.
