Wineries Near Grand Traverse Resort and Spa

A trip to Grand Traverse Resort and Spa isn’t complete without a winery tour. With so many wineries nearby, where do you begin? It’s a question we get a lot. To help, we’ve created a Traverse City wineries map (below) to help you savor wines with that special northern Michigan terroir while you’re enjoying a stay at the Resort.

Our Traverse City wineries map includes the following local winery locations:

  • 2 Lads Winery
    • This winery specializes in cool climate red and sparkling wines. Enjoy their exceptional wines from their bright, modern tasting room on Old Mission Peninsula.
  • Chateau Grand Traverse
    • Known for their high-quality wines since 1974, this winery, the second-largest in Michigan, serves award-winning wines on their outdoor patio overlooking the vineyard’s rolling hills. Enjoy the scenic view of West Bay from Center Road, and don’t forget to grab a charcuterie board!
  • Chateau Chantal 
    • Located on a 75-acre estate on Old Mission Peninsula, in one of the most scenic areas of the Great Lakes, Chateau Chantal provides a unique destination that combines vineyards and winery, a bed & breakfast, winding roads, fresh air, and kind company. Views of East and West Grand Traverse Bays, Power Island, and rolling vineyards abound from each window.
