About
Hawthorne Vineyards is a friendly boutique vineyard and tasting room destination just four miles North of Traverse City on Old Mission Peninsula. We're passionate about making finely crafted, small production quality wines from our estate fruit. Our 80 acre site is nestled into a ridge above Peninsula Drive with postcard views of East and West Grand Traverse Bays. Hand crafted wines are created from the vineyard’s acreage of Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Lemberger, Gamay, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling. Surrounding traffic and disruptions vanish as guests make their way up the winding private drive to the most peaceful and serene vineyard destination on Old Mission.

This was a spur of the moment stop for us at the end of a winter winery day. We arrived in a lull so had full attention of manager and staff. They were very friendly and willing to answer all of our questions. Lovely inside space with panoramic views of both the East and West bays. Popcorn flight was a wonderful addition to our wines. Bought a bottle of the 2022 Gamay which was our favorite. Next time we hope to come in warmer months and try the outdoor seating.

We visited this winery and enjoyed the friendly service and bought a mixed case of wines. Although the tasting flight lbs were pre-selected, our server offered to switch out a choice for us. This winery also offered flights of 3 different types of popcorn to snack on!

We had an outstanding experience!! Last summer we found this hidden gem and loved their wines so much that we joined their wine club. This summer we returned and did the VIP experience (my husband, myself and our 25 year old daughter). We cannot recommend this place enough. Chris, the tasting room manager, gave us a tour of the vineyard and told us so much about the wine growing process. It was a fantastic experience!

Sam was our wine attendant. She was pleasant and informative. We used our Winter Wine Pass for your tasting and also ordered the popcorn flight which was delicious. Highly recommend and will definitely return in the future.

This was our last winery stop while on vacation. I was really excited because they have a cherry wine and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed our wine while taking in the views. It was the perfect end to our day. Stop by and check them out!

What a view!! This was our first stop on a winery tour and we're so glad they were still open after a bad snowstorm the day before. We had a personal winery guide who gave us great recommendations (Mike at The Magic Shuttle Bus) and let us just take our time enjoying the tastings, and the awesome view. We came away with a club membership (Mike's influence and a decision we don't regret) and a case of their Semi-Dry Gewurztraminer. We will definitely go back to this winery. What a special place!

You can see both sides of the water. Not a good breeze on the deck but there were umbrellas to keep cool. There were picnic tables on the lawn but since its lower, you might not get the view. The Barrel Reserve Chardonnay was my favorite.

This location is beautiful. Well manicured. Many seating areas. Views of both bays. Clean. Abuzz with August’s hornets. And the wines...of our 9 wine tastings, 4 wines were pretty okay.

The wine is great, but the view is the true draw here. From their small patio, one can see both bays! Service was not great though. There were three people working, yet at one point nobody was at the counter for about ten minutes so there was quite a backup on those wanting to make purchases. Still - we’ll be back!
