Best way to spend a Sunday- wineries?

I will be in Traverse City from late afternoon on Saturday 8/25 until mid-day on Monday 8/27. We will have been on Mackinac Island since Wednesday, and this is the last leg of our trip.

We want to check out some wineries and anything else that is a 'must do' in this short of a time frame. Any recommendations for wineries on Sunday so that we can visit a few and maximize our time without driving all over? Dinner recommendations for Saturday night and/or Sunday?

Thanks for your help!

I cannot help with wineries at all but The Village and Castle Farms are both places that should be considered. Also, I am much assuming you will be going to Sleeping Bear National Dunes ? That is a must. If time, on the way back, consider www.thinkdunes.com and also check out www.m22michigan.com for more ideas on that lovely highway.

The best attraction is Sleeping Bear Dunes. If you've never been, start with that. I'd visit the Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive (and pull-off #9) as well as the Dune Climb (but maybe not the long slog to the lake... that's not my favorite, I just like the view from the top).

If you want wineries there are two main regions: Leelanau and Old Mission, both of which are easily accessible from Traverse City. I'm partial to L. Mawby (for sparkling wines) and Bowers Harbor.
