Longview Winery

Longview Winery The origin of the name "Longview Winery" begins over 15 years ago when Alan and Linda first met. Linda was living in Michigan and Alan in Florida. They met at a conference and began a long distance relationship. With their children preparing to head off to college, Alan told her, "You have to look at the longview". He said, "our kids are off to college soon and we will be together forever". Fifteen years ago they married and upon retirement Alan said, "You saw the longview and married me, now what do YOU want". Linda told Alan she wanted to live on a farm in Leelanau County so in 1998 they bought the land and started growing the vines. The grapes that make the wines are a culmination of Linda and Alan seeing the longview and today they produce the finest wines in the region. Theirs is a story of passion and love for each other, the farm, the land, and the community they live in.

  Apple Sparkling Wine
Brut style – with unique, bright crisp green apple in a bottle. This sparkling apple is a combination of local apple varieties farmed by our friend Elmer Kalchik. Serve cold for any occasion. Especially good with your favorite brunch and if you add a tablespoon of peach nectar for a Bellini or orange juice for a mimosa you will have elegance of fruit.
  Cabernet Franc
Blackberry, plum and spice with solid tannin lingering and full nuances of black cherry, cocoa and vanilla. Aged in New French oak, this hearty red is awesome with rack of lamb, or your favorite grilled steak and then continue with chocolate mousse.
Crisp texture with lively acidity and just a hint of tasty oak. The 2005 chardonnay has beautiful fruit forward consisting of pear, melon and citrus. Clean, refreshing and long on flavor, viscous. Barrel fermented in new French oak. Great with any poultry, pork or heavy cream based seafood dish.
  Cherry Mead
Did you know that mead was the first fermented beverage and is known as the “Nectar of the Gods?” Made from Julius Kalchik’s local honey and a touch of cherry, it is the first commercially produced mead in the area. This wine is the perfect after dinner drink or try with waffles.
  Cherry Port
This is aged in new French oak with just the right amount of sweetness. Try reducing with wild game for a sauce to die for, or enjoy as an aperitif
  Cherry Wine
A careful blend of different tart cherry varietals has produced a deep, rich cherry wine with a unique long finish. This wine is dedicated to Elmer Kalchik who grew the cherries from which it is made. --Pacific Rim International Competition; one of two given for fruit wines at this international event!
  Pinot Gris
The estate-grown grapes which have gone into this wine were planted in memory of Lissie McClintock. This first vintage is dedicated to her. Fruit forward with apple-balanced acidity, crisp yet smooth with silk-like overtones that leaves an impression on the palate.
  Pinot Noir
One of the toughest wines you’ll ever love. This grape may be the toughest grape to grow, but the effort is well worth it. Toasty vanilla and with classic cherry, raspberry, complemented by soft tannin and a long finish. Ripe, dense, generous, round and plump.
Semi-dry with 1.5% RS, this 2005 age worthy Riesling has beautiful fruit forward consisting of floral bouquet, pear grapefruit, underlying clove and honey-fruit flavors. The perfect wine for any picnic. Enjoy this bottle of wine sitting on your deck having conversation with friends or with your favorite spicy Asian dish.
  Rustic Red
Aged in new French oak this wonderful red wine gives a new meaning to “House Red” which was made special for the Cedar Rustic Inn and Longview Winery using Estate grown Frantenac. Pairs nicely with Chef Aaron’s special BBQ ribs or grilled steak.
  Rustic White
A very fruity dry white wine made with 100% Cayuga grapes done in the spirit of “Vino da Tavola.” Cayuga is a hybrid grape that was developed at Cornell University. This estate bottled wine pairs nicely with just about any grilled fish and is also a complement to lemon roasted chicken.
  Sweet Winter Ice
The grapes for this wine were picked (by Alan Eaker himself) after they were frozen on the vine. Any time you feel like something very special, with tropical fruit and melon, have a couple of sips of this fabulous ice wine.
