Benjamin Gulow
Tasting Room Manager

I grew up here in rural Leelanau and now reside in the bustling metropolis of Traverse City. I am proud to be serving wines made from grapes grown here in Leelanau. I enjoy being one of the friendly faces to guide guests through the tasting of Laurentide wines. As a big foodie, I feel lucky to live in such a beautiful place with an abundance of amazing restaurants, breweries and wineries.
