It’s an idyllic scene that could easily be in Tuscany or Provence, but luckily for you, it’s right here in Northern Michigan! Hosted by the Boathouse Restaurant at neighboring Bowers Harbor Vineyards on Old Mission Peninsula, Dining in the Vines has earned a reputation as one of the most unique dining experiences in the region – not to be missed by anyone who loves great food, great wine, and fun.

Picture a warm, sultry evening in late summer: In our beautiful covered pavilion overlooking leafy grapevines adorned with tiny twinkling lights, long wooden tables are exquisitely set with candles, white linen, fine china, and crystal glassware. Soft candlelight glimmers as the lively conversation of your table-mates fills the air. Intoxicating aromas swirl around you as you sip fine wine and watch a five-course gourmet meal being prepared beside you at an outdoor kitchen by a white-coated master chef.The anticipation of an unforgettable night unfolding is almost palpable…
