    Wineries with a View

    • Rove Estate Vineyard & Winery
      • Perched on the highest point in Leelanau County, this tasting room peeks out over rolling farm hills and hardwoods. An excellent choice for the height of fall color!
    • Chateau Chantal
      • Situated on a gentle hill off the spine of Old Mission Peninsula, Chateau Chantal plays host to an expansive outdoor deck that looks over the placid waters of East Grand Traverse Bay.
    • 2 Lads Winery
      • Wind and wend your way with the curvature of the shore to the 2 Lads tasting room—replete with a massive floor-to-ceiling glass wall, which peers over the estate.
    • Mari Vineyards
      • The spacious rear patio is just the start. Meticulously designed to align with the summer solstice, the wine caves beneath the stone structure are alighted in ethereal glow on the planet’s longest day.

      Wineries with a Snack

      A multi-stop marathon of wine tasting in Traverse City may leave you a bit peckish. But that’s no reason to sideline your sojourn. Pop into these tasting rooms for a snack while you continue to sample the wares:

        • Cozy up in the elegant tasting room, sip on a crisp Chardonnay, and nibble on the offerings of their generous charcuterie board.
      • Bonobo
        • Delight with sweet rosé and an order of fried goat cheese; breaded and topped with golden honey, almond brittle, and house-made specialty sauce—this is one mouthwatering morsel.
      • Left Foot Charley
        • For dessert, find your way to this quaint urban locale tucked into the Grand Traverse Commons. Enjoy a glass of wine or cider and a sweet treat of decadent chocolates.
