Modern, well-appointed winery reminiscent of Napa Valley

We stopped here on our local wine tour and did enjoy their wines. Knowledgeable hostess and we bought 2 bottles of moderately priced wines. Beautiful view of the bay.

We went late one morning and had an attentive hostess who was knowledgeable. Really liked the reds. Nice view of the bay.

Uptaste, modern architecture. Great wines, reasonably priced. I'm not a wine officionado by any means...I just know what I like. I really liked the Chardonay. My wife preferred the Pinot Grigio. Highly recommend

Found this gem four years ago and it is now a staple in our yearly visit to Northern Michigan's wine country. Good variety in the samplings and the staff is friendly, knowledgeable and way more approachable then many of the other wineries in the area. We always find some great wines to bring home (too many, but I am not... More

Did not have plans to stop for wine tasting, as we had our 2 kids with us. However, we decided to stop. Did sampling of 5 wines ($5), but free if you spend more than $20. Left with a bottle of wine. Nice staff.

This clean, bright tasting room is situated on the top of a hill that looks out on water in three directions. The wine is pretty darn good, too.

Very modern architecture, with a great view of the Old Mission Peninsula and East arm of the Grand Traverse Bay. Our server talked about the micro climate and the characteristics of the wines we were tasting.

I'm really sorry about your experience, but we are absolutely a kid-friendly establishment! Families are in the area on vacation and we welcome them to stop by the tasting room as part of their day out on Old Mission Peninsula. At the heart of what we do is farming, and while some tasting rooms may seem like a bar, ours... More
