We enjoyed our visit to the Cherry Republic in downtown Traverse City. There were several samples to try, all which had cherries in them. The wine tasting was very good and the server was very helpful and skilled in describing the different wines and finding ones that went along with our taste for wine. This was a very enjoyable visit... More

I want to be a member of the republic. My favourite summer fruit is worshipped here. Read all the labels and signs, their sense of humour is fantastic, lots of fun. The products are healthy and interesting. Head out to the Hall of the Republic in Glen Arbor if you can.

We always stop by during our Wine Diva trip to Traverse City for Toast the Season in November. We usually go kind of late in the evening and we don't get much service from the employees, but it is still a fun place to stop! We love to sample the goodies :) The best is the Cherry Almond butter jam... More

I had visited there in the summer of 2012 and purchased some of their famous cherry wine. This year I was planning on ordering a couple of bottles from them as a Christmas gift for a family member and I just have to say they have an excellent customer service department. They were very prompt into responding to me and... More

If you like cherries this is a must stop. Anything that be made with cherries they have it. Go hungry because they have lots of food out to sample.

This is a cool little place..Old-fashioned buildings and cute signs, for decoration on the buildings. A pop/wine-tasting building where you can sample the various cherry sodas, and cherry wines for free. Another building has gifts, knick-knacks and t-shirts and so many cherry things to try: salsa, jam, granola, spreads, coffee, chocolates,....all free and all delicious!!!. Also a little restaurant where... More

A GREAT place to buy all of your Christmas presents for the year. Stock up on dried cherries especially. Hint - the Balaton cherries are larger and more tart than the rest. They are wonderful in scones and trail mixes throughout the year!

The Cherry Republic was a great place to stop by. They had samples of the majority of their dishes including the awesome Cherry Hot sauce and my favorite, Cherry Apple Butter. Very friendly staff and quick service. A must-go every time i visit Traverse City!
