Excellent wine and ciders with beautiful scenery. We stopped by for a tasting during a busy time, but we hovered near the outdoor bar and were noticed right away. The woman helping us was amazing: she was helpful and relaxed, despite the fact that she was scurrying around a bit between customers. She chatted with us and lent her personal thoughts (all good!) to the wines and ciders we tried. I wish I could remember her name! The garden/outdoor area is relaxing and offers plenty of shade and side tables if you want to take a glass and enjoy it, or if you need to keep little ones busy. The tasting fee includes your wine glass, which she wrapped up for us. The grapefruit and watermelon ciders were some of the best we've tried, so of course we had to buy some! I noticed a staff member checking on the people sitting in the chairs too, which was nice to see. **My sister went earlier in the day and had a slightly different experience. They also went to outdoor bar area and gentleman serving their tasting kept referring to the ciders as weak, or not their best, hoping the next batch would be better. He also asked if they wanted their glasses (they are included) and seemed a bit put out that she did.

Great wine and hard cider selection! A group of 21 of us went for a wine tasting and this winery by far is the most organized, efficient and kindest that we’ve been to when touring Traverse City. We had a lot of fun here and they sell a lot of cool goodies in their shop! We will definitely visit again!

Cool layout & wonderful servers. I was a little drunk when I arrived, but someone said the wine was good. It went down my hatch pretty smooth...

We Love Bowers Harbor! We especially love going for the cider! The New Grapefruit Cider is beyond amazing. They allow dogs which is hard to find in this area. Remington (our dog) loves all the attention from the employees and other customers. The employees are very intelligent on what they are selling which is a huge benefit! @remdoggoldenboy

Good. Somewhat rude but they're working hard and rebuilding soon to expand for table service. You'll love it as long as you tell them I'm a cool it is and they are. After you purchase a bunch of wine that you liked after tasting make sure they remove your tasting charge, lol. Weeee
