Save the date for the fall wine club pick up party at both our TC winery and GR Forty Pearl. Join us on Sat, Nov 3 and enjoy some delicious hors d’oeuvres while tasting the wines in Robert’s picks.
This summer brought a good harvest of mentions in major news publications. The Chicago Tribune and New York Times visited the Traverse City Area and praised our wines!
Robert has picked all gold-medal winning wines for the Spring Wine Club Members six-bottle commitment. Of course, club members are free to customize their selections but his picks are pretty good.
BB sent some of our white wines into the Eighth Annual Palate Press Grand Tasting and guess who was the surprise of the night?
The most vivid memory in this industry is recalling the seasons. Every season is remembered from bad, average, great to historic, as they all get a place in the long-term mental data bank.
Every vintage has three seasons -- start, middle and finish. Our 2017 had a mediocre start and middle, but what a fabulous finish it brought us.
2016 as a vintage is the best to date! All essential elements came together to create historic Cuvées. Ideal weather leveraged our perfect dirt and microclimate to produce exceptional grapes.
