Several times during each summer Aurora Cellars presents an outdoor musical program on their lawn and patio. They provide chairs and some blankets and it is a nice way to spend a few afternoon and evening hours.

The wines were good. When we arrived, it was cery crowded. It seemed like a commerical winery. It was $1 per pour.

Another nice stop on the wine trail. Great people on both sides of the counter. I really liked their sparkling wines the best. Worth getting a Flass instead of a taste.

The tasting room is situated at the top of a hill with beautiful views of the surrounding vineyards. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable about the area and local wines. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful site which can be for events. Tasting was nice, good choices. Uniquely flavored ciders were a real treat. We settled on a couple of bottles to take home.

Had a great time drinking wonderful wine. I bought so many bottles I decided to join their wine club. Bubbles was fun. The atmosphere was relaxing. This was one if my favorites in Traverse City.

Beautiful ground and wedding site. Picture beautiful Spring day with aroma of white wisteria. Family & friends were gathered centered to a large, old weeping willow, lying beside a pond, toads croaking, ducks quacking & minister speaking. All between two vineyard fields. Such a calming...More

Our daughter got married at Aurora Cellars in July 2017. We had high expectations for the wedding, and they were exceeded. Beautiful, low key environment, with great view of winery and surrounding area. Cool farmhouse where the brides stayed, which was a great base of...More

With the number of wineries in the area you would think they would at least provide a more competitive tasting. The 5 pours amounted to less that one glass. It was not worth the money.
