Back in early May,  I had the opportunity to photograph a wine tasting event in the Leelanau area.  The Sip and Savor went on all weekend and I made it to a fantastic cluster of wineries in Traverse City.  This image below is now recently published in the Leelanau Peninsula Vinter’s Association website. 11 Check this out!!

This image was photographed at the Ciccone Winery owned by Madonna’s father Anthony Ciccone, whom I had the pleasure in speaking with and one of the nicest people to ever meet.  I look forward to my visit back.
