My wife and i really enjoyed our tasting here. They had several good wines and cidars. Service was good but odd. We had several different servers pouring our tastings and they kept asking which one we were on. But it was a good time and we cant wait to go back

Nice location, lots of different wines and hard ciders for tasting along with snacks. Nice spot to stop and try the wine. Have both indoor and outside seating.

Nice place. They offer 6 tastings for $5. Great way to sample and find out what you like. Live music on Friday nights. Love the Pinot and Cinnamon girl cider

We had a great hard cider Apples&Oranges today! We got to sample several and they were all good. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable. We stopped in after touring the grounds. I would highly recommend it.

This was my husband and I's first experience with wine tasting and it was an awesome one. The girl doing our tasting was amazing, although she had only been with the winery a month, she created an inviting and informative atmosphere. The wine and ciders were excellent and our conversations flowed easily. I could have sat there all day! Thank... More

I love my wines; and if you do too, this is the place to go. The sampling price: 6 types of wine or ciders for $5 can't be beat. As much as I love wine, I ended up buying 3 bottles of the Cinnamon Girl Cider. It is really delicious. They also have mustards, shirts and knickknacks there for all... More

Left Foot Charley is a fun winery for the history buff! Once the laundry facility of the State Hospital located across the road, the building now houses the tasting room and actual production equipment of the winery. They have great wine, a few very good ciders, and some neat historical pieces that have been included in the design of the... More

We visited their tasting bar located at the Traverse City Asylum area. Nice atmosphere, large windows and plenty of light and room. They also do specials like wine and cheese on special occasions - like valentines day. The service was good but the staff was young and not very knowledgeable (I asked about the difference between cider and wine making... More

I love this place! It is a staple every time we come to town! They always have tasty wines to try and the cinnamon girl cider is amazing! If you like it, consider getting a growler of it to take home :)

This winery is always a great place to stop and have a glass of wine to relax or visit with a friend indoors or outside on the patio. All the wines/ciders are so tasty that it's hard to decide what to get. The winery is small and classy, with entertainment that is always top notch. Anytime of the year this... More
