welcome to the
traverse wine coast
Located in northern Michigan on the 45th parallel, our wine country boasts two unique peninsulas climatically moderated by the massive waters of Lake Michigan. The Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsula wine trails both provide 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!
