This is a great place for Thai. My two favorites are fish tacos and the coconut Thai seafood soup. Although we have never had anything the menu offers that we were unhappy with. You can choose your seasoning from mild to hot!

Hi Katie, We appreciate your review, but think you may have the wrong business. We are a sparkling winery in Leelanau. There are a couple of places around us that serve Thai food, and Thai does pair really well with bubbly. : ) If you haven't visited us yet, next time you're in the area pick up some Thai, and...

We made our second trip to L. Mawby a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed it as much as we did in the spring 2 years ago. The people are so friendly and attentive and really seem to enjoy working there along with talking to visitors. I am typically a red wine gal but their bubbly wine is DELICOUS. We... More

I've done the wine tour several times now and this is my favorite. Mawby's specialty is sparkling wine and they do it really well. Michigan wineries are getting better every year, but very few of them put out a product which will compete with California and or France. Mawby is the exception. You get to free pours when you come... More

On a whim, we headed up to L. Mawby. We knew we'd get there too late for tasting flights, but a friend we were with from the area said we could still do the regular tasting. When we arrived, we were immediately greeted by a friendly guy who let us know that tasting was still going on but that flights... More

Great biking to the vi yard and then tasting with friends from France. Tasted several and they then decided to take two bottles home to show friends and family how good the two were! A great asset and a fun afternoon.

Never underestimate Michigan wine. This is the best tasting room in traverse city and they also feature a small menu. We love the place so much that we have them make custom labeled sparkling every year.

We had a very enjoyable time tasting the sparking wines at Mawby. If you really love sparking wines I have a tip, sign up for their Fizz club either before you go or when you get there on their iPad.

We love sparkling wines, and were very impressed with the selection here! No charge for tasting, which was great..find one you like, then get a full pour with some pâté and crackers, 2 glasses for $9.00, and sit outside and enjoy the view! Loved Wally!

My husband and I visited Mawby in 2010. We sipped sparkling wine and fell in love with one another while sitting outside of their tasting room overlooking the vineyard. The prices are reasonable and the wine is very good. I recommend getting the cheese plates and taking your time while visiting the vineyard.
