    Wonderful winery and restaurant! Of course, we love your ice wine but cannot afford it so we occasionally taste it. We have purchased lots of your Rustic White and enjoy it in Leelanau and Arizona! :-)

    My wife and I love Longview. We regularly visit the Traverse area and all the various wineries to find delicious treasures but without question Longview is our favorite. The Longview Red, Port and Ice are our favorites. I love to grill a NY Strip and enjoy a glass of their Red with it and then have a glass of the Port for a finish. We also celebrate very special occasions with the Ice. It is so smooth and really amazing. Neither of us has ever enjoyed a glass of wine so much. It is expensive but worth every drop for those really special events in life. If you try a bottle and don't like it…call me, I will be glad to come finish it for you! We have been going there the last 3 years and already planning a trip in May '10. Alan is a great host at the winery. Thanks Longview!!
