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.

  • One of my favorite wineries on the Old Mission Peninsula, we returned here with our two teenagers and they had a great time. I really appreciate the non-alcoholic flights offered to my under-21 crew.....  more

  • We went there for wine tasting. I recommend going in fine weather, as then you can sit outdoors and enjoy the view of the vineyard. I love the wine glass trees.

  • Most of the vineyards on Old Mission have changed the way they do wine tastings. They now do wine "flights" and they are way more expensive! This location would at least allow you to try up to 5 wines in a flight. Most of tge other locations were doing only tastings of 3. I would also highly recommend going on a weekday or getting a reservation for a group of 4 or larger to avoid long waits. However, they had some of the best wine we've had on our trip this year. We have been doing annual wine tasting for over 11 years and this is the first time we've been inclined to join the wine club. The staff here were great and we had a great time at this location. The wine at this location was also so tasty that after tasting 5 different wines, we stayed for an additional glass of wine each. I highly recommend going to this location!
  • Large wine flights. Found a wine i haven’t heard of Smokey Hollow Gertz vernier, it was good surprise! Reason for 4 stars is a felt their wasn’t a good set up for getting the wine/ tasting area like many of the other places in the area. Basically order it and go find. a space to sit quickly.
