  • Bower's Harbor is one of my favorite Old Mission Wineries. I love the intimate feel of the tasting room. If the weather is nice, they will even do tastings out on the deck. Their wines are great and I...  more »

  • My wife and I were on the frozen wine tour... We visited 5 wineries in all. The staff was fantastic, made great recommendations and provided a great deal of insight. Well worth going.  more »

  • I cannot say enough about this place. The staff were fantastic, everyone was so friendly, informative, and engaging. The wine was fantastic. The grounds were gorgeous. They have several settings throughout the grounds where you can enjoy a glass amongst the grapes. Once again, if you enjoy a winery with a friendly and engaging staff, and an outstanding ambiance, this place is for you! Thank you Bowers Harbor. You're doing it right.
  • Wine was pretty good and most of the staff was great. Tom was awful, rude, and disrespectful. He went out of his way to belittle me when I said that my husband I were in the industry. He told me that because we didn't sell wine, our vineyard wasn't considered industry even though we sell grapes. After his speech about how we weren't in the industry I asked what varieties were in the Bowers Harbor Red, which he was unable to tell me. His attitude toward myself and my friends left our visit to Bowers feeling very negative. Which is disappointing after I talked it up to my friends.
  • I cannot say enough good things about the winery experience. The ciders are amazing. Max made the experience way better than any other winery we've been to in Michigan.
  • The laid back atmosphere and great view of the Vineyard and the bay are amazing. If you come during the right time of day they usually have some low key, live, acoustic music too.
  • Friendliest of all the Old Mission wineries, in my opinion. Attentive (they'd run out of the pear cider I'd wanted, so they found a bottle to crack open for me!) and dog-friendly, too! The wines are pretty good as well.
