Located on the 45th parallel with 105 miles of shoreline, Traverse Wine Coast boasts two unique, glacially formed peninsulas climatically moderated by the massive waters of Lake Michigan providing optimal expressions of winemaking.
What could be better than sitting outside and sipping a glass from our regions' wineries while taking in the views of Grand Traverse Bay? We can’t think of much.
Early summer at the wineries brings the much-anticipated new releases from the prior year’s vintage, as well as several popular wine events. “Divas Uncorked” on the Old Mission Peninsula is a hugely popular girls-night-out “devoted entirely to women, wine, food and fun” each year in mid-June. Across West Grand Traverse Bay, the Leelanau Peninsula Wine Trail celebrates the season with its “Small Plates” event each August, pairing gourmet tapas with wine.
