Create an itinerary including Bowers Harbor Vineyards
Converted from the family’s old horse barn, the Bowers Harbor Vineyard tasting room provides a warm and cozy atmosphere to taste some of Michigan’s top rated wines.

Bowers Harbor Vineyards offers wine and hard cider samples, wine by the glass, hard cider by the pint, bottles of wine and hard cider to take home with you, and flexible Wine Club memberships!

The experience begins before you reach Bowers Harbor Vineyards. The road along Old Mission Peninsula leads over rolling orchards and vineyards that are frames to the east and west by the waters of Grand Traverse Bay. Each rise in the road exposes gorgeous panoramic views. Meticulously manicured vineyards and flower gardens will entice your eyes as you enter the estate.

We hope you will come see for yourself and enjoy our unique and beautiful winery, stunning views with wines to match!

Taste. Learn. Enjoy.

  • Great place for wine tasting. Great wine and cider options. The staff are friendly and helpful when trying to make a decision on what to try and the preselected flights are convenient. You may want to make reservations as it is a popular tour stop and bridal shower destination. Join the wine club!
  • We love Bowers Harbor. It's our favorite vineyard on Ole Mission and we visit it at least one time while we are in the area. They create an enjoyable outdoor space, friendly, and allow dogs.
  • A stop on our wine tour, huge fan of ciders and they had such great flavors. Ended up getting the blueberry cider and it was really good.
  • This use to be my favorite vineyard in TC, but unfortunately they have become to exclusive. If you don’t have a reservation they will kick you out of your seat even if they aren’t busy. Left without buying a thing and a bad experience. I will not be back! Too bad that they feel they need to cater to people who feel the need to be important.
  • Good. Somewhat rude but they're working hard and rebuilding soon to expand for table service. You'll love it as long as you tell them I'm as cool as the wine is and they are. After you purchase a bunch of wine that you liked after tasting make sure they remove your tasting charge, lol. Weeee
