Vineyard Picnic Tour

Indulge in a savory picnic lunch in the vineyard

In spite of its northerly latitude – on the 45th parallel, exactly halfway between the Equator and the North Pole — Traverse City, Michigan has a surprisingly moderate climate, thanks to the warm Lake Michigan waters that surround it.

Early farmers discovered that they could grow delicate fruit crops like peaches and cherries on the slopes above Grand Traverse Bay, and the area is still known as the nation’s “Cherry Capital.” More recently, it has also established a reputation as one of the country’s best new wine-producing regions.

Michigan grows about 70% of tart cherries (Sour cherries) produced in the United States (Washington state is the leading producer of sweet cherries) Traverse City, Michigan claims to be the “Cherry Capital of the World”, hosting a National Cherry Festival.
