The wine tasting was amazing and we brought 2 bottles back with us. The atmosphere was so chill and relaxing I... More

This is a small, quaint vineyard. Beautiful sitting areas that even offers seating amongst the vines. It's like walking into family vineyard and feeling at home. Live music was played, tastefully done. I didn't try any wines b/c they are all on the sweeter side which I do not like.

A small group of us decided to go wine tasting and this was our first stop, and by far, the best. $5 got us 5 tastes and a complimentary wine glass. The wine was very good and the staff was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. It was a smaller winery, but I enjoyed the fact that there wasn't a wait... More

Located on the Mission Peninsula near Traverse City, Bowers Harbor Vineyards offers a great wine tasting experience in a wonderful setting. We focused on white wines, simply because we like Michigan white wines. The fellow behind the counter talked about the wines, answered questions that we had, and poured some nice portions for our tasting. We ended up buying a... More

I went on a wine tasting tour and visited 4 wineries. This one was definitely my favorite! The wine was awesome and the people working there were super friendly! The scenery was so beautiful and we were able to sit outside in Adirondak chairs and drink our wine and have some cheese. I didn't want to leave this stop on... More

Stopped by this vineyard while staying at Chateau Chantal...how delightful! A small area for wine tasting, however, enjoyed the wine & great cider...we purchased some cheese & salami for $2.50 each which went well with the tasting! The view and atmosphere was beautiful...very relaxing to sit outside in rocking chairs enjoying the surroundings!

We stopped for a wine tasting. I'm not a huge fan of Michigan it's usually to sweet. I tried the sparkling it was very good.. Then I tried the hard cider. It was great the Peach-Apple and the Cherry-Apple were all kinds of yummy... I bought a 1/2 gallon to take home... I would go back for more...

We visited Bowers Harbor on 6.11.16 for my Bachelorette Party. We had a group of 12 of us and we had our tastings at the outside shelter that over looked the vineyards. We loved the set up of this place and they were the only winery on our tour that let us take our glass home with us.
