Bel Lago’s Leelanau Primavera (& More!)

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | May 16, 2020

It’s always seemed a bit short of a shrift that moms — those bearers of babes, slaves to tantrum-ing tots, and saints for a lifetime — get celebrated one measly day out of 365. Thanks then to three local merchants who, the day after Mother’s Day, announced they’ll cut us kids a deal to honor Mom all month long. 

Until the end of May, Bel Lago Winery, Grocers Daughter’s Chocolates, and BLK MRKT coffee are offering deep discounts on two Month of Mom packages: The Sweet Mama (now $75; usually $102.50) delivers five bottles of Bel Lago’s sweeter wines, a 4-piece box of Grocer’s Daughter Chocolate caramels, and 12-ounces of BLK MRKT coffee. The Smooth Mama (now $100; usually $133.50) brings five bottles of Bel Lago’s drier wines, a 4-piece box of Grocer’s Daughter Chocolate honey caramels, and 12-ounces of BLK MRKT coffee. Got a mama who’s neither sweet nor smooth? You can also customize your package with Bel Lago wines you choose. 

(And if perchance any of our children are reading this, we look forward to receiving the Sweet package because it features one of our favorite summer sippers, Leelanau Primavera, a 2018 Michigan Wine Competition gold medalist and white blend that starts crisp and clean, with notes of apples and pears, but finishes sweet — much unlike yourselves as toddlers, which was a very trying time for us and most certainly the reason for our gray hairs. Love, Mom.) 

See all the goodies and place your order at bellago.com. ($10 flat-rate delivery fee; curbside pickup available by appointment.)
