Will McCrory
Assistant Tasting Room Manager

I graduated from MSU where I studied supply chain management. I found a passion for wine in an elective class where I learned the history of wine and science of wine, as well as tasting quite a few. Coming up to Leelanau for many years I always enjoyed going to wineries and walking through the vineyards. It wasn’t ‘til I was older that I learned how special Leelanau’s wines are. To me wine is best enjoyed with good food and better people. My favorite wine is the Fume Blanc which I like to pair with cheese and my mother's grilled white fish.
