Set on the grounds of a renovated state run asylum, Left Foot Charley offers tastings of their wines and hard ciders. I especially liked the Cinnamon Girl Cider which tastes like apple pie! Worth a visit!

We had the wine/cider and cheese tasting. Very large portions of wine and small portions of cheese. Both were excellent. Not rushed. Great atmosphere.

Have to say this is my favorite winery in Traverse City. My wife and I visit every year and this is our first stop. Cinnamon cider is excellent and I also am a big fan of the Stumble! Only thing I would like to see is their wine in some local stores down south!

The location of this winery is interesting and not what is typical of the wineries in Traverse City. Unfortunately I don't think I can be fair with this overall review because my husband and I went into this tasting with full stomachs which hampered our desire to drink wine. We tried a lot of different wines, but our favorites were... More

A friend had recommended we stop in to Left Foot Charley's while visiting the Commons. They offer several hard ciders, many whites and a couple of red wines. Our server Sara was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. You could get 6 tastes of any wines or ciders on the menu for $5 or split a tasting and each person could have... More

Stopped in for some cider after having it at a local eatery. Didn't realize they had wine too! It looks like a bar, you can purchase by the glass if you'd like. Tried their three ciders and three of the wines. Would recommend all the ciders, Spire wine. Don't come hungry though, they only hav small plates here.

We go to Left Foot Charley (LFC) often. It's a wonderful place to sample some wine...or better yet, get a glass of a Cinnamon Girl hard cider! We've also gone there when they have live music. Great crowd, great atmosphere, great employees!

We aren't big wine drinkers, but had a blast here. Our bartender (Sara?) was adorable and so knowledgeable. Mel came over as well, and was engaging and took our experience to the nth level. The cider is a great option for beer drinkers, loved the suggestion to mix the two! Great outdoor space, friendly wonderful staff, fun tasting experience.

We always make our way to Left Foot Charley Winery in The Commons in Traverse City. The staff is always ready to offer tasting, and we especially like their white wines. We tasted, and then purchased a bottle to share with our friends, and sat outside listening to the music in the nearby farmer's market.

We had a wonderful late afternoon tasting with some nice appetizers. It was open mic night which just invites you to stay and taste some more wine. There is a sandbox out front for the kids. The white wines were fabulous.
