A more modern atmosphere here, but the view out of the very large window while doing your tasting, is just gorgeous. The staff here was wonderfully fun and knowledgable. I recommend a stop here!

Nice modern building which is a nice touch for a winery. The view was outstanding and it could definitely be a fun place for a group or bachelorette party. The wine was just alright, nothing jumped out as got to have which is rare because I usually end up with a bottle or two from every winery I go to... More

Have been back twice this Fall, as recent as Saturday October 19th and have been disappointed each time after raving to my group about this being my... More

Hello. I am so sorry about your less than spectacular visit. While excuses are never acceptable, we are a little short staffed now that the college students have returned to school and Saturdays in October are our busiest days of the year. We are currently in the process of hiring more staff. We strive to serve everyone in a friendly... More

Aaron served us the select tasting of pinot noirs and a chardonnay. All were tasty, and the view is to die for. You can see the grapes going through the machinery, heading to production. Nice staff, nice experience.

This is one of the newer wineries that we visit on our bi-annual trips to the Traverse City area. The wine tasting room is spacious and bright, very friendly staff and plenty of wines we found to our liking. The view is spectacular but as always we find that visiting when it's not quite so busy tends to let us... More

We were here on a Saturday, the 3rd stop on our wine tour. It was absolutely wonderful! The views are spectacular. The staff was exceptional. They had four tasting stations set up throughout the building. Although their were many people here, we did not feel rushed or crowded at all. The tasting stations were scattered throughout the building and the... More

GREAT view from high on the hill and worth the drive to see the lighthouse and the view from this parking lot...... $5 tastings, small pours, rushed big time, we had almost no knowledge of the wine shared with us and we shared one person behind the bar with maybe a dozen other people. We were in and out in... More

This a wonderful place for a tasting, but wish they'd build a patio outside their tasting room for a nice place to sit and enjoy your wine.
