Good Harbor Winery, Lake Leelanau, MI


The Simpson family has been growing fruit on the Leelanau Peninsula for three generations. They use integrated pest management techniques to grow their crops with minimal chemical inputs. Soils and plants are constantly monitored for imbalance or disease, so when a problem shows up they can make an educated decision on a course of action. To avoid unnecessary spraying, they tuck grape shoots annually in catch wires and hand pluck leaves in the fruit zone. This creates an open canopy where air can circulate drying the dew and rainfall before fungal diseases can establish. All vineyard rows on the Leelanau Peninsula have permanent sod middles for several reasons. Their annual rainfall of about 35″ that can lead to soil erosion, the mixed species of grasses that play host to beneficial insects, and the grass cuttings aid in developing a healthier organic mix in the soil.
