Rove Estate Vineyard & Winery

Just as every glass holds a story, so does every dream. Creighton Gallagher fell in love with the Traverse City area wine industry in 2007 when he worked at Old Mission Peninsula’s, Brys Estate, with his good friend Coenraad Stassen. Although he was a recent college graduate of Grand Valley State University in Accounting, he could not shake the feeling of discontent working in a cubicle, trying to fit into corporate America.

As a fifth generation farmer, he could not picture himself in any industry besides agriculture. When he met McKenzie, the two often dreamt of owning a winery. In fact, it was McKenzie’s thesis for her MBA. Their first date was at a wine tasting dinner at the Boat House Restaurant hosted by Brys Estate. Inspired by the experience, they began exploring Traverse City and Leelanau County wineries and gained a strong sense of what their winery would be if they ever had an opportunity to start their own.

Then in 2010, they had a chance to purchase a part of the family farm from Creighton’s father, John Gallagher. The stars must have aligned because at the time of the purchase, a 15 acre block of cherry trees needed to be replaced, which opened up an ideal opportunity to replace the trees with 15 acres of grapes. Living on love and lots of hard work, the Gallaghers put their plans in motion to open a tasting room in the Spring of 2016. In addition to their cherry farm and vineyard, the couple have four beautiful children, and are often surrounded by them at their farm.

Rove Estate tasting room offers a perspective of the Leelanau countryside that has rarely been seen. Perched at 1100 feet, the elevation creates the area’s perfect vineyard—southern-exposed slopes, abundant sunlight and cool-air drainage offering protection from the frost—perfect conditions for premium estate grown grapes.

On August 21st, Rove Estate has the distinct honor of hosting the 3rd Annual St. Jude Sunset in the Vines! Tickets are available on our website or www.stjude.org/sunsetinthevines. Last year we raised just shy of $100,000 for this incredible charity! Interested in sponsorship or volunteering? Please DM us! There are SO many opportunities to make a difference! ❤🍷⠀

Did you you that...⠀
.⠀
💚St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.​⠀
💛Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.⠀
💙Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80 percent today.⠀
💜St. Jude has increased the survival rates for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) from 4 percent before opening in 1962 to 94 percent today.⠀
❤St. Jude freely shares its groundbreaking discoveries, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world.⠀
🧡It will cost more than $1 billion to operate St. Jude this year and the majority of that must come from generous donors.⠀
💜St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world.⠀
💙St. Jude is licensed for 80 inpatient beds and treats upwards of 277 patients each day.
