Private & Customized Traverse City Wine Tour

There are also wines made from fermenting other fruits or cereals, whose names often specify their base, with some having specific names.

Red wines are red because fermentation extracts color from the grape skins. White wines are not fermented with the skins present

One of the things that you can tell by looking at the color of the wine, is the region and climate where the grape vine is located. Darker shades of wine, namely the darkest reds and yellow whites come from warm climates. Lighter colors come from cooler climates and taste lighter and less lush.

The world’s oldest bottle of wine dates back to A.D. 325 and was found near the town of Speyer, Germany, inside one of two Roman sarcophaguses. It is on display at the town’s Historisches Museum der Pfalz.

Highlights

  • The 40+ wineries and tasting rooms on the Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsula boast some of the most beautiful scenery in the country.
  • Situated on the 45th parallel, halfway between the north pole and the equator. This gives the region its distinct micro-climate, that makes it perfect for growing high quality wine grapes.  Just like Italy’s Piedmont region, France’s Rhone Valley and Bordeaux.
  • Nestled at the head of Grand Traverse Bay, Traverse City is a four-season destination that combines breathtaking natural attractions with a rich blend of adventure and relaxation. Known for its 180 miles of sugar-sand Lake Michigan shoreline, Traverse City is also home to award-winning wineries, microbreweries, championship golf courses, and a vibrant downtown with more than 150 shops and restaurants. And all just minutes away from the majestic Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
