45 North Vineyard’s Foodie Flight

Bottoms Up
By Anna Faller | March 18, 2023

What tops the perfect local wine flight? How about one that comes with snacks? Through March, 45 North Vineyard & Winery is joining forces with The Cheese Lady (Traverse City) to curate the ultimate wine-and-cheese tasting as part of their monthly Foodie Flight, and we can’t think of anything cheddar! The series begins with 45 Red—that’s a softly-oaked Merlot and Cab Franc blend—paired with a creamy English cheddar, followed by the off-dry Red Barn Red with a nutty Spanish Mahon. The decadent, port-style Northpor+ (aged for three years in whiskey barrels) rounds out the trio along with a tangy blueberry Stilton. Mix and match morsels and sips as you please, but be sure to start your sample in order to get the biggest bang for your bite. Enjoy each month’s Foodie Flight ($22) at 45 North Vineyard and Winery (8580 E. Horn Rd., Lake Leelanau). Psst—ice cream is on deck for August! (231) 271-1188, fortyfivenorth.com
