A lot to do in Frankenmuth no matter what season of the year. indoor things in the winter as well as just being outside in the town in the summer. Many great places to eat and visit, including a zoo.

We were strolling through town and stumbled across this place. We decided to do the wine tasting paired with chocolates for $5.00. It was a great experience. The gentleman that greeted us was very friendly although the young woman that took us through the wines and chocolates was a little less passionate. She seemed as if she didn't want to... More

Need I say more? They pair great wines with chocolates for a cool tasting. For 5 dollars you can try 5 of each and then pick any wine to try as your 6th choice, They were very knowledgeable about the wines.

My husband I tood the 35 minute tour. I would really recommend doing the wine and chocolate tour instead. The 35 minute was very relaxing but it really only was a boat ride that went in one direction for around 15 minutes and then turned around and went the other way for 15 minutes. Our driver told us little facts... More

This is a great little shop where you can taste chocolate and wine. The wine is not super fancy and on the sweet side (they do not carry a chardonnay), so it's not really to my liking, but it's still a good little stop in Frankenmuth. You can sit outside on their deck and have a beer or pop and... More

Firstly, I've taken two different boat tours on the Cass River with Frankenmuth FunShips in the few years and they have been excellent. One was just a wine tasting and the other was a pizza and wine cruise. Wonderful. However, this review is about the wine tasting done in their shop. Our ladies group stopped in around 4pm on Saturday... More

My husband and I took the wine and chocolate tasting cruise on October 1. It was a beautiful day and the boat ride along the Cass River was so relaxing. Our guide, John, was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. He didn't really have a script, but rather reacted to the guests on the boat answering questions and... More
