The wine and atmosphere here was so so. While we were in the middle of our tasting with a group of 5, one of the two servers walked away leaving one of our guests behind. They had to ask to finish their tasting.

Aurora Cellars was a pleasant experience with some nice wines. Formerly Circa 45 winery, the owners have done a nice job with their wines in a relatively short period of time. It's worth a stop on your Leelanau wine tour.

Visited here after going to two other wineries nearby and the place was cute, but the pour very stingy compared to other two spots. Wine was good and staff friendly! Offered some snack pairings which was a plus.

I don't think this gets the number of visitors other more popular vineyards get, but it's just 1 mile from one of the more popular sites so worth a visit.

Stopped in to try a few wines. Met a great server named Amy who was very into the wines and how they are processed. She kept us very entertained while we sipped our libations. They also have great hard ciders....I recommend the Chapple!

A winery with a nice setting and modeled after a Tuscan location. Great building and setting. Lots of reds to choose from and most were good but nothing stood out. Definitely no bad choices though.

Aurora Cellars is a great little winery up on the Leelanau peninsula. There are a lot of wineries to choose from up there, but Aurora is one of the better ones. The wine is good, the building is very nice, and the waitstaff is very friendly. If you are up in the area touring the wineries, make sure that you... More

Spent 3 nights New Years weekend in the farmhouse at Aurora Cellars. What a phenomenal place! Everything was just perfect. Kim's attention to detail did not go unnoticed. The decor, furnishings, wireless (so we could stream bowl games through ESPN), 3 king sized beds for 3 couples and 2 bathrooms with showers. (Girls used the downstairs bathroom and it was... More
