What an exquisite experience! The staff were very friendly. This winery is in a small old schoolhouse. Will go back again for sure.!

Our favorite wine tasting spot. The old school house converted into a wine tasting room is perfect for them. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The atmosphere quite nice.

Peninsula Cellars never disappoints. We stop by each year while visiting Traverse City & Mission Point Peninsula to purchase our favorites and we're always delighted to see new options to try. My absolute favorite is Old School Red. It's a great table wine perfect with any meal or any occasion. I stock up every year and can't wait to go... More

The staff were very friendly even though we came in 5 minutes before closing time. They didn't try to rush us out. They even let more people in right at and after closing time. It was also cool that the building was an old one room school house and some of the wines offered had names like "Detention" and "Homework"

This was the first stop of the 7 wineries we toured on Old Mission Peninsula and one of our favorites. VERY reasonable tasting fee & a really neat setting - old one-room schoolhouse! Of all the places we visited, this was the one place I felt the most comfortable and least rushed. Very homey atmosphere with pleasant & welcoming staff.... More

This is a pretty little winery in a cool setting - an old school house. The staff was pleasant and the wines quite good. I recommend the dry whites, especially the excellent Pinot Blanc.

For only $2.50, you can enjoy a taste of several wines that Peninsula Cellars has to offer. If you are a sweet wine connoisseur, I would suggest the Homework wine! It's my personal favorite. However, drinking a glass of wine for $8.00 plus a complementary wine glass on the porch of a refurbished old one room school house in the... More

The building an architecture is nice. The wine to me is just ok. There are better wineries with better tasting wines and better views IMO.

First time visiting - Tom was awesome! Because of him giving us personal attention (due to snowy weather we were alone in the winery) we will definitely be back! I enjoyed all the whites and the sweet red choices (Homework!) were very good as well. My husband enjoyed the red selections. Good cherry wine as well! Catchy names for the... More

I wasn't much of a student is school, but this schoolhouse had just what I needed to focus. They converted this one room schoolhouse into a wine tasting attraction. The hosts make you feel at home. They have a variety of wines for every taste. Another fun time.
