Rove Estate is the perfect stop along the way to your next Sleeping Bear Dunes Adventure. Tucked along the most popular route to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (M-72), our vineyard and tasting room is perched at 1165 feet. This is the highest point on the beautiful Leelanau Peninsula (even higher than locally-famous locations like Empire Bluffs or Pyramid Point). From our deck, one can see the village of Empire, Sugar Loaf, and also the highest point in Grand Traverse County. It truly makes the sunset one of the most memorable you will ever experience!
We feature live music and locally-sourced small plates all season. Join us on our patio stage in summer and around the outdoor fire pits in winter to enjoy a tasting or wine by the glass.
The estate is a great place for adults and kids of all ages to play games, dance, explore, hike/snowshoe, or just relax. Tucked far off the road and surrounded by wide open green spaces, the estate features a hiking/snowshoeing trail loop guiding you to the highest point in Leelanau County with a back door entry into the vineyard. Join us along the way to your next Sleeping Bear Dunes adventure!
To honor the land and its historical connection to the community, our tasting room was designed to harmonize with the surrounding landscape. With barnwood sourced from the family homestead, there is an undeniable authenticity and connection between Rove Estate and the history of the Gallagher farm. Rove Estate proudly practices environmentally conscious farming and utilize biodynamic and natural practices whenever possible.
