My family and I have made it a tradition to visit the tasting room every year over the holidays. The tasting room looks out over the vineyards to the harbor. It's on the small side, but the staff is so friendly and knowledgeable, it's always a good time. The wines are fantastic, I love their sweet whites, Rose and the... More

There's a few wineries in the Mission Peninsula. We are so glad we stopped at this one. The tasting room is small, along with the gift/wine shop. The employee behind the tasting room bar was very friendly and knowledgeable. Her recommendations were spot on. They serve reds, whites (dry & sweet), sparkling wines and hard cider. That was a pleasant... More

The last few years my wife and I have taken trips to Traverse City and gone to winery's. We have been to most on the peninsula and this is by far the best vineyard we have been to. The staff is polite and helpful and the location is beautiful. And most importantly they have amazing wine. The 2013 Riesling block... More

We love Bower Harbor Winery. Whenever we are in Traverse City we always make sure to stop here. The owners are wonderful,the wine is excellent. The country side is very pretty. For Christmas we always order wine baskets and cases of their wine for friends.

After having a bad experience at another winery on Old Mission, this winery was everything we were looking for. The parking was very well organized and they had workers directing you on where to park. We were able to go to the bar immediately to sample their great selection of wines. The bartender was super friendly and very helpful. She... More

I'm glad we took the time to find Bowers Harbor. I was a bit surprised to find the ciders in addition to the tasty wines. We brought back a couple of bottles of the cider. The wines were good, but like many wineries in Michigan, not that good a value. You can get stuff from the more well known wine... More

We have been to the old mission peninsula several times but we have never stopped at Bowers Harbor Vineyard. Very nice, like most of the vineyards on the peninsula it is very well maintained, the area is beautiful and the wine flows. They do have a very nice unwooded chardonnay that I tried, very tasty, ended up buying several bottles.... More

After having Bowers Vineyard wines at our wedding six years ago, we finally managed to visit the vineyard. Found even more wines that they produce. Some may not be the cheapest, but hey that's ok. Service was great in the tasting room and they even replaced a bottle of cider after I knocked the lid in the car and it... More
