Uncork Your Adventure on the Traverse Wine Coast
Whether you’re new to Michigan wine or a connoisseur, wine tasting offers a fun way to learn about different varietals and discover new favorites. Located in northern Michigan on the 45th parallel, our wine country boasts two unique peninsulas climatically moderated by the massive waters of Lake Michigan. Each peninsula provides optimal expressions of winemaking. Our wines are very fruit forward, exciting and beautifully balanced. We owe this to the maritime influence of the Great Lakes, especially Lake Michigan. It provides a microclimate influence which the grapes love, and the people do, too!
Grab your clubs and head out for a round (or two) of golf at state-of-the-art and award-winning courses throughout West Michigan.
