The Best of the Traverse Cities Wineries

Though there are plenty of great Traverse City wineries worth discovering this summer, nothing compares to the experience waiting for you at our top-rated winery and Bed and Breakfast in Michigan. As you settle into this beautiful Equestrian-inspired estate, you’ll begin to see what makes this destination stand out among Traverse City wineries.

Many of the top Traverse City wineries, including ours, are located on the Leelanau Peninsula, an area that’s been rapidly growing and earning plenty of praise as a top wine destination. Surrounded by Lake Michigan, the Leelanau Peninsula’s lake-effect climate provides perfect growing conditions for classic vinifera grape varieties, including Chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, and more.

Our hand-crafted wines have been fine-tuned over the years, earning plenty of local and international acclaim along the way. From vineyard to glass, we’ll guide you through a delicious wine-tasting experience. There’s a little something for everyone at our Traverse City wineries, too. We offer more than 50 wines and European-style brandies, something to please every palate!

Our Suttons Bay Tasting room is the original flagship location of our Traverse City wineries. Here, you’ll find a spacious tasting room, a beautiful outdoor terrace with gorgeous views to complement your wine, and a beautiful 160-acre estate that’s yours to explore. This tasting room is open daily and offers wine by the glass or flight, in addition to spirit flights and cocktails.

Alternatively, you can join us in our beautiful Old Mission Tasting room, just minutes from downtown Traverse City. Surrounded by vineyards, orchards, and panoramic views of the Old Mission Peninsula, this tasting room is the perfect place for white-wine lovers, though you can enjoy tastes of our 50+ wines and spirits, too! Cozy up to the wine-barrel bar in this beautiful tasting room, and savor the experience at our top-rated Traverse City wineries.

In addition to by-the-glass tastings and wine flights, we also offer top-tier wine-tasting experiences at both locations. This premium tasting features five of our most coveted wines, including a traditional method bubbly, limited-production reds, and an ice wine-inspired finale to round out the experience. We also offer estate and wine tours for those guests who want to learn even more about our vineyard.

For a truly immersive wine and culinary experience, don’t miss the opportunity to join us at our flagship Suttons Bay location for our Arcturos Dining Series, a unique vineyard-to-table dining experience you won’t forget.
