Food & wine pairing

Had a absolute perfect time here, 5 course meal with wine pairing in the middle of a vineyard. Great food, excellent wine and good company, do not miss this.

Bowers Harbor Vineyards is always a favorite place to stop on our annual vacation Up North. The wines and hard ciders are always first-rate. They have recently added additional outside seating. We spent a couple of hours there on two different afternoons last month. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

We visited Bowers Harbor as part of our wine tasting with the Sunday Safari Supper through Traverse City Brew Bus. Sitting outside under an arbor, Lindsey our hostess, shares the vineyard’s story as we sample wines (Brix –medium sparkling wine, Pinot Grigio, Riesling-Smokey Hollow, Shiraz, and Unoaked Chardonnay) and ciders (Blueberry-Apple, Cherry-Apple, and Peach-Apple). An hors d’oeuvres tray provided by... More

One of my favorite wine stops in Traverse City on Old Mission Peninsula. Delicious wine, terrific tasting, great music and beautiful views. Love the Pinot Grigio and now also the new hard cider options. Great store with wine accessories, local jams and sauces and some local art work.

This is a wonderful vineyard on the Old Mission Peninsula. The views are great. The wine tasting area was a little busy. Please be patient with customer service. The wines are very good. I suggest tasting, buying a glass of wine and sipping it from the porch. I

We loved the wines and the staff at Bowers Harbor Vineyards. This was a very unpretentious winery and we had a great time with the two gentlemen behind the bar. They were definitely not locked into the 5 tastes for $5 tasting fee! We bought half a case, purchased some delicious white fish spread and crackers and took a break... More

We stopped here on the way through and enjoyed the dog themed blends. Otis was our favorite and we anticipate arguments over who finished off the bottle. Nice experience.

AMAZING wine and atmosphere! Prices are reasonable too. We stop by every time we are in town. Great outdoor patio area that often has a guitar player. Gorgeous views of the vineyards!

Nice winery. Visited Sunday pm. Employee could have been more attentive (others were more descriptive and getting into details of wine). Love the dog treats and other fun things. Wine and cider were good

such a nice, relaxed, non-snobby feel. We visited several different wineries while we were in MI and this was the favorite.
