Circa Estate Winery Attempts Timelessness

ypically, “circa,” a preposition used before a date to indicate an approximate or estimated time is also synonymous with approximately, around or even roughly. Yet Circa’s proprietors, winemaker Margaret Bell and her winery general manager husband David Bell, didn’t suggest any of those associations when we inquired about the name. “Timeless anywhere or anytime,” was their definition. Once you also know that Margaret’s screen name is “bohemiandoll,” you sense further that Circa is not just a new Leelanau Peninsula AVA winery, but one on a new wave course.
