Traverse City Uncorked
Quickly becoming a renowned wine destination, Traverse City boasts a wide range of cool-climate wines that pair perfectly with the exploding cuisine scene.

Among the internationally acclaimed varietals are Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc.

Pair all of this with the beauty of Lake Michigan’s Grand Traverse Bay and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and experience, firsthand, the Traverse City region which will have you yearning for more.
