Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Left Foot Charley is a winery like no other. In lieu of the single estate model, LFC is a collection of grape and apple growers located throughout Northern Michigan dedicated to growing fruit for our wine and cider. Located in the urban setting of the former Traverse City State Hospital campus known as The Village, LFC creates an array of balanced white wine, red wine, and hard cider. Every bottle tells the story of the farm, the vintage and the winemaker's dream of sharing it all with you.

“good wine nice staff”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

we stopped in here on a whim after going through some shops nearby. it was only 5$ for a fun tasting experience with a couple of extra tastes. The girl who served us was informed and interesting even though they were quite busy. I thought she was good at her job and then even more so when another random staff poured me the next on one my list as she was rushing by - she didn't explain what I was about to taste. There was a party on our right that tried the Cinnamon Girl cider and were laughing about how bad it tasted - then a few moments later a gentleman came up on our left and refilled two large bottles (growlers they call them) of the very same thing - which made us ask him about it, our girl overheard us and asked if we wanted to try some, we did and loved it and as a result bought some.

“Nice spot”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The dry Riesling was the best of the wine we tasted. The hard cider was also excellent.
Nice outdoor seating.

“Good place if you get there at least a half hour before they close”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

Left Foot Charley is a good spot. If you get there within a half hour of closing they do NOT do tastings unless the manager is there. We walked in 20 minutes before closing and were told we could not do a tasting. Ten minutes later another couple came in and the bartender said they couldn't do a tasting as they close in ten minutes, but the manager,I'm assuming said they could do a tasting, and they did. We although were out of luck. We finished our glasses of wine and left, without buying anything else.

“Not Impressed”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

LFC should consider their wine tasting fee to other venues in the area. Not only that we did not find the person serving very attentive. The atmosphere and facility are nice and it seemed more suited to the after work crowd.

“Cinnamon Girl!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Every time we come to TC we HAVE to stop here for a glass of cinnamon girl and to refill our growler. We were here for the weekend and visited 3 times. It makes up for the months in between visits when we are just craving a nice cold glass of Cinnamon Girl. Their other ciders are also very good. Give it a try!
