Tasting

Family-Owned and -Operated Winery in Northern Michigan

For over four decades, Good Harbor Vineyards has been in Northern Michigan, producing award-winning wines. We welcome you and your family or friends to join us in our wine tasting room today. You can sample a multitude of different varietals we grow off-site. When we first started, we weren’t sure which grapes would survive and thrive in the Leelanau Peninsula. Over the years, we have cultivated an exquisite line of wines, using the best grapes to fill your glasses. We've refined 125 acres to ensure the success of creating brilliant wines. With every sip, you can taste our years of knowledge and hard work in the vineyard.

Located two miles east from the coast of Lake Michigan, our wine tasting room has gorgeous views and provides guests with indoor and outdoor seating options when looking to enjoy a new pinot noir, chardonnay, and so much more. You can even bring the pup along with you during the warmer months. Enjoy more by taking a self-lead tour throughout the facility or get a pairing of food with your glass when looking for a snack as well as a high-quality wine. You can see where we fill your bottles and the wine cellar where we age in various casks. Our tastings are on a first-come, first-served basis, so please give us a call before coming to ensure we have room for you.

Award-Winning Sweet, Red, White, and Fruit Wines

Since our inception, our primary goal has been to provide great tasting wine at a reasonable price. Forty years later, we still pour our award-winning wines in our cozy tasting room.

Find the Perfect Food Pairing for Your Wine Tasting

Our serving team is very well versed in our wine selection. They can help get you any answers you have when thinking about how the wine was created, tasting notes, and they can even help you find the right snack to go with your glass. Or maybe you are hungry first and thirsty second; we can help find the right wine based on your snack selection. Come to our tasting room on the Leelanau Peninsula to see and taste for yourself the fantastic Good Harbor Vineyards red, white, sweet, bubbly, and fruit wines paired with local meats and cheese. We do not permit outside food or beverages on the patio.

Dogs Welcome on Our Tasting Patio

While your fur buddies can’t come inside our wine tasting room, you can bring them if enjoying your Good Harbor Vineyards pours outside on our tasting patio. You must keep all dogs on a leash so as not to potentially bother other guests. We have servers to help when you need a refill, wishing to switch samples, or need to grab your party some food to eat as well. We ask you to make sure you pick up after your dog and try to keep them using the bathroom in the outdoor patio area. We have dog bags available to ensure a cleaned area.
