Traverse City

Three Day Beer, Wine, and Spirts Tour

Traverse City Three Day Beer, Wine and Spirits Tour

Traverse City is the place to be, and it just keeps getting better!  Come and fall in love with "TC"

The area, not long ago, was mostly known as a quiet getaway for families and outdoor enthusiasts.  The rich soil, rolling hills, and ideal climate provided bountiful fruit and vegetable harvests.  And then came the wine!  This, one could say, is destiny for the area.  It does share space along the 45th Parallel with the world's premier growing regions such as Bordeaux and Cote de Rhone France, Piedmont Italy, and Willamette Valley Oregon.  This provides the ideal climate for vines to flourish.  The soil provides nutrients that are replenished by its coastal location and the morning fog drifting through hill and valley keep the grapes cool into the day, yielding bursting and flavorful harvests each fall.

All of these components explain not only fantastic vineyards but also contribute to distilling and beer making.  True to the long held, locally sourced mentality of the area, farmers provide hops and barley to the bustling craft beer scene.  Local grains and botanicals lend to premium spirits.  Combine the local resources with hard work, experience, and dedication and you have one of the worlds up and coming communities of finer beverage production!

We'll take it a day at a time and explore and learn about one aspect each day.  Hop farms, malting facilities, and brewery visits give a start to finish look at how that delicious sample came to be.  A day of winery visits with vineyard tours, tasting rooms, and ample time for sampling.  And finally, a chance to try your new favorite spirit, be it whisky, gin, vodka, or cordial! Enjoy lunches in the Taprooms, Winery Dining Rooms, and local favorite restaurants along the way.  Dinners each night provide opportunity to discuss, trade tasting notes and pairing ideas, exchange recipes, and share the some of the most beautiful surroundings your eyes have ever seen!
