Dog Policy

Dog-Friendly Outdoor Patio and Lawn (during warm weather seasons)

Friendly, non-barking dogs are allowed on our patio and outdoors. We offer flights of wine (5 small glasses of wine) to take outside for you to enjoy at your leisure; they range from $18-28 per flight. We offer all our wines and hard ciders by the glass, ranging from $6-$15 per glass. And we offer cheese and cracker-type snacks to enjoy outdoors as well. Your dog would be allowed on the tours (link to vineyard tours) as well, since those are outdoors.

We sell wines with dogs on the label too! We love dogs.

Do you provide guest transport?

No, we do not  provide transportation to and from our tasting room, however, we work closely with the tour and bus companies in our area. Traverse City Tourism offers a list of wine tour & transportation companies - ranging from fully-hosted educational wine tours to limousine service to local cabs. Just be sure to call these companies ahead so appropriate accommodations can be made. 

We look forward to your visit!
