Through the past 40 years, the delightful Traverse City region of Michigan has built a solid reputation for warm hospitality paired with crisp and intensely aromatic European varietals. It boasts two enchanting wine trails situated just out into the deep blue waters of Lake Michigan on the picturesque Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas. Here, wine touring is a feast for both the palate and the eyes. The vista views of rolling landscape, and sapphire-hued water are absolutely breathtaking. Named one of Travel Channel’s Top 10 Cities for Wine Snobs, due in part to the wonders of the 45th Parallel (the shared latitude for Italy’s Piedmont region and Bordeaux in France), the Traverse Wine Coast has about 40 different wineries, vineyards and tasting rooms. Not only are the wines — ranging from crisp whites to complex reds — top notch, the tasting rooms themselves are a sight to behold, with some of the best views of the shore-lined landscapes. Traverse City offers incredible diversity and beauty across all four seasons. Whether you are exploring the outdoors on the water, or at the Sleeping Bear Dunes, sipping local wine, or savoring a delicious meal, each day provides another chance to enjoy this truly great place.
