Fall is the Season of the Grape!
From the middle of September until the first week of November, the water-warmed slopes around Traverse City yield clusters of grapes that are destined to be tomorrow’s Chardonnays, Rieslings and Pinot Grigios. And since the wine harvest takes place at the peak of Northern Michigan’s fall color season, an autumn visit to the Traverse City area is a splendid way to pamper the eye and the palate at the same time.
Book a join in group tour to Old Mission or Leelanau Peninsula and you will be in awe of our fall breathtaking views.
Set up a tour with Traverse City Tours and take advantage of the many local tasting events held in the fall — from the Harvest Stompede and the Hunt for the Reds of October on the Leelanau Peninsula to the Great Mac & Cheese Bake-Off on the Old Mission Peninsula, choose a “wine trail” event that fits your schedule.
We can customize a fall wine and color tour for your group if you book privately. Let us take you to some hidden treasures that we have discovered over the years in Northern Michigan!
