This was always one of our favorites. Now the inside is for "VIP" only, ok whatever. If you're looking for a flight, you have to now choose from different pre selected cider/wine samples. You simply cannot pick and choose your own samples you'd like to sample for your "flight". It seems they have shifted their focus on their "event tent" for special events rather than the every day Joe coming to visit their establishment and sample wine/cider of their choice.

We visited this winery a couple of days ago and were quite disappointed. The tasting flights were pre-selected with NO option to switch out the choices. I would give the ambiance of this place a zero. If you are deciding which of the many wineries to visit, I’d recommend skipping this one.

A place to avoid
Rude. Used to be much friendlier.
Can't use indoor restrooms unless you are a member
Can't sit inside unless you are a member
Can look at the wine library unless you are a member
Can't sit at some outside tables unless you are a member

A lovely little winery. My daughter and I visited here on our wine weekend in Traverse City. We enjoyed a glass of wine as well as a short walk near the vineyard. Would def stop here again.

This used to be our favorite winery to visit but it really has changed. It was a cold December afternoon and you weren’t allowed to sit inside unless you were a wine club member. The guy who waited on us was abrupt and unfriendly and their flights have gone up in price a lot since we last visited. You have to do a preselected flight while previously you were able to pick your own selection. Their wines are still good, but it was a disappointing experience overall.

What a view!! This was our second stop on a winery tour and we're so glad they were on the tour! We had a personal winery guide who gave us great recommendations (Mike at The Magic Shuttle Bus) and let us just take our time enjoying the tastings, the awesome view and conversation with the great staff. We are sorry Lucy wasn't there to pet and hope to meet her next time! We will definitely go back to this winery. What a special place!

Beautiful setting. Flights were a bit pricey. Wine is average. But honestly, we don't go for the quality of the wine. We go for the experience and ambiance. Bowers Harbor delivers on that. As it's basically impossible to get full bodied dry red in Ohio/MI, stick to the sweet/fruit wines, and you'll be more satisfied!

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 (and they staff member also pointed out pregnant ladies appreciate the option as well). The wines are great and they always have the white fish dip that is to-die for. We had a great time here! Shout out to fellow Hillsdale charges who own this place. Aumni (and current student!) were in your house.

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.

After checking out all the wineries on the peninsula, this was the most expensive for tastings. They had preselected fights to choose from- dry, sweet or ciders. After seeing the price, we were almost going to leave. They had one flight of four for $40 and other flights around $20 with some wines on the flight that they were out of. After getting a flight, we fell in love with their Riesling. We were pleasantly surprised to find that some of the wines themselves were reasonably priced around $28. Our server did not offer much information on the wine, but the wine itself was good and the patio was inviting to taste on.
