If you’ve ever wanted to be the host or hostess with the mostest, enjoying a Traverse City wine tour is the perfect way to research great ways to pair fine wine with good food.


Consider it your homework before your next barbecue, dinner, or party!


Get your best friend, significant other, or a group of friends and enjoy a Traverse City wine tour. You will find so many things to enjoy and use for inspiration for your next party as you soak in the atmosphere and ambience of each local winery. You can even consult with our staff to determine which wineries to visit on your custom-designed Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsula wine tour.


Northern Michigan boasts a rich history in the winemaking industry and the owners and staff at the local vineyards are wonderful teachers! Not only can you learn all about their unique approaches to making award-winning wine, but you can find out how they decide what foods to pair with each wine to enhance the flavors.


At each stop on your Traverse City wine tour, you will get to taste a variety of wines before you buy and learn about the wine from the on-site experts. Usually, they’ll tell you about each wine before you taste it and they welcome questions after you’ve had a chance to enjoy your sampling.


Pairing wine with certain foods is an art, and one that local winemakers have made their life’s work. Why not learn from the professionals?


Don’t be shy about taking notes during your tour. Winery owners and their staff enjoy sharing their love of winemaking and having people really appreciate their art is a great compliment. And there is always so much to learn and remember. Writing down a few notes will ensure you’re prepared for pairing the wine with just the right dishes when at home.


In addition to enjoying the spectacular views and delicious wines on a Traverse City wine tour, you can also use the outing as an opportunity to stock up your wine cellar ready for your next party.


One of the benefits of enjoying one of our custom Traverse City wine tours is that you can relax and enjoy the wine tasting while you leave the driving to us.
