Winery / Vineyard · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink
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.

  • Living in Traverse City there are a lot of winery/cider options, however Bower's is by far the best in my opinion. The quality of wine is the best I've ever had. I am very picky when it comes to cider, but I absolutely love Bower's cider. The service is exceptional.. especially Kevin. He is so welcoming and kind. I became apart of the wine club because I love it here so much and plan on staying apart of it even when I move downstate. Oh, and one of the best parts about it's dog friendly!
  • This place was super cute! As a dog person i loves all of the dog photos on the wines and dog apparel you could purchase! Cooper was delicious! The scenery is beautiful! Lots of great photo ops here. Definitely check this place out, you won’t be disappointed!
