We really enjoyed the experience and the ambiance of dining last night in the Langley Vineyard, inside a perfectly sized tent with propane heaters.

I love this place. The people and atmosphere are great. The "bleach" (peach and blueberry cider combined) is so good!

My husband and I were up in Traverse City visiting the wineries. This was my favorite one so far. It's super cozy and on a beautiful setting. The wine was phenomenal and the servers were very friendly and knowledgeable. We will be back again!

It is 2 dollars for 5 tasting. It is our first stop of the wine tasting in the area. The staff is kind and friendly. The dessert wine is our favorite. It also has a nice balcony looking to the vineyard.

We have visited here for some 9 years and have seen their tasting room grow and improve in size. Madeline the wine steward/customer service person has been their a while and knows her business and is extremely customer friendly....love working with her. Their Meritage Blend of 2896 is wonderful...as is their Apple Ice Cider....what a wonderful taste...enjoy.
