“Great Experience”
Reviewed April 25, 2012

This is a larger tasting room, however it still feels inviting. The staff was very helpful and the wine was excellent. On our next trip, my wife and I will likely stay at the Inn also located here. We purchased several bottle of wine after tasting the offerings. As with most places, it is $5 for five tastings and you keep the glass.

“Old Mission tasting room was splendid”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

Very friendly, knowledgeable staff. Did the five for $5 tasting. Picked up two Rieslings which were our favorites. Most wines were between $15-20 a bottle. This is the choice winery on Old Mission Point.

“Wine tasting...plus!”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

There are lots of good wineries in northern Michigan, but this one really stands out above the rest for their quality of wines and fresh cheese too. It's more than just an vineyard, it's a real farm.

“Beautiful B&B and Winery”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

This is very nice Winery (plus more) and is worth the stop if driving along the West Bay. They have a large Tasting Room, a gift store, a little market with local products and it's also a beautiful B&B (great place to have a wedding or special event). They make a specialty cheese, too. They also have a small petting zoo.
