My all time favorite! Wine and staff are amazing. I actually just got engaged there! The staff went above and beyond to make the day a dream come true.

Bowers Harbor is our favorite vineyard on Old Mission. Love the atmosphere and the beautiful setting. The wine it good too! Our friends enjoyed the hard cider. We were there during the MSU/UofM game and they had TV's outside for people to enjoy the game. Very accommodating and welcoming. Can't wait to go back!

We were able to use a coupon from our hotel for this place. Loved the wine. There are a few things you can purchase to eat if you like. There is a fire pit you sit down next to and enjoy the scene.

We spent a rainy day at the Vineyard wine tasting. The wine was really good and the staff were very helpful, and we bought some nice merchandise from the store (glasses, wine bottles and wine rack). The cherry salsa was also very good. We were sad to hear that the Vineyard dog, Brix, was moved to a property a mile... More

Stopped here on a rainy Saturday and had a great experience and stayed dry and warm. There is a nice bar inside for tasting and even some college football watching. There was an outside area equipped with two bonfire patio heaters to keep everyone warm on a cold wet day. Staff is very friendly and welcoming. There are a fair... More

I have been to Traverse City to visit my brother three times in the past two years and we go to Bowers Harbor Vineyard each time. Not only is it my favorite as a tourist, it's my brother's (and his girlfriend's) favorite as locals. The place is just beautiful, with a welcoming arbor and beautiful views of rolling hills, the...

We went to the vineyard with family members who will be moving to Traverse City. We decided to try a cider flight with raspberry cherry and blueberry ciders. I've come to like cider quite a lot in the last year, but these "other" kinds of cider were amazing and the blueberry was very memorable. SO I would suggest by all... More

I love the atmosphere, people, wine....and you will too!! Our bachelorette party made a reservation and had a table all to ourselves on the back patio. The service was wonderful, the ice wine is fantastic and they have a good selection of tasty snacks. I cannot tell you how much we loved it, you have to see for yourself!! Thanks... More

We really enjoyed the experience and the ambiance of dining last night in the Langley Vineyard, inside a perfectly sized tent with propane heaters. Chef Jim Morse and his amazing staff prepared another memorable feast. We started with an amazing charcuterie of cheeses, homemade meats and crackers, olives and pickled asparagus, accompanied by a glass of the Langley 2896 Brut... More

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