We visit the Mission Peninsula Vineyards a couple times a year and the Bowers Harbor Vineyard is definitely a favorite. The staff is very friendly and accomodating (Kate). The location with the view is also exceptional. We participated in the wine vs beer dinner at the Boathouse Restaurant which the Bowers ownership helped host. They were very gracious and recognized... More

We stopped at all the vineyards of Old Mission Peninsula and this was by far the best. The wine was the best and the people were also great. Some of the other vineyards had rude people waiting on you who didn't seem to know their wine very well or care whether you liked anything. At Bowers Harbor, she actually listened... More

Great service, nice location, good wine! For just $2 you can sample 5 different wines or hard ciders. Also can enjoy wine by the glass. Enjoy cheese, crackers or other snacks, and ask as many questions as you want

We went on a wine tour with Grand Traverse Tour company and they took us to several wineries on the Old Mission Harbor. We had a great time, and visited 5 or 6 places. Our favorite was Bowers Harbor. They had the most complete wine tasting, great staff, and a wonderful experience. Brixx (the Bernaise Mountain Dog) was a hit.... More

I visited here recently with wife and friends. Wine tasting price was very reasonable and better then some tasting rooms in this area. We were attended by a very friendly server. We found most of the wines we tasted were very good. The tasting room also has an assortment of items for purchase such as dips and hot sauces. We... More

On a recent visit to the Old Mission Peninsula, we visited four wineries. My favorite was Bowers Harbor. The tasting was fun, and the view from the patio is fantastic. You can buy a glass of wine for reasonable $5 and sit and enjoy the view! They had some clever labels done for football tailgating season for Michigan and Michigan... More

We stopped here because the reviews were so great. Unfortunately we picked a very bust Saturday in the late afternoon. Even though we did one quick tasting and didn't stay long, the staff was very friendly and they made great recommendations. I would visit again but try to pick a less busy time. Beautiful location!

We have visited the winery sever times and have always come away with fond memories. Wonderful and very knowledgable staff. A great place to have a tasting or to have some wine and a bottle of their wine. This is always a must stop when we visit the Mission.
