Cute winery

Cute place, okay wines. Love the décor of the place. No Napa here but a fun tasting and we bought a bottle of a red blend that was pretty good.

We have been here before, and recently it has become more popular. Great in general, except if the one room schoolhouse where the tasting room is becomes packed to the gills. Besides that, last time I was in I bought 6 bottles of wine (reasonably priced at $90) but they charged me $5 for the bag to carry them out... More

First time customer here. We were hoping for indoor or outdoor seating but there was none. Just a wine tasting area in the middle of the room. We sampled all of their red wines and the hard cider. The driest wine we could find was very good and for 20 a bottle it was reasonably priced. Most of the wines... More

This was one of our favorite yet simple wineries along our tour. Converted from an old school house, there wasn't 1 wine we did not like, Detention was our favorite. The Sangria was probably the best me and my wife have ever had, ended up taking a pint home with us.

Great way to bring life into an old building and done the right way. Great old school charm! Love that they use "school" terms to name their wines!

We stopped in for some tastings & were pleased. The crackers here are better than those in other tasting rooms. I liked their sangria the best.

Visited this place on the recommendation of the staff at 2Lads winery. Cute old schoolhouse. What it lacks in size it makes up for in friendly and knowledgable staff. The sangria was just right not to sweet and you can even purchase it. You can also buy the wine and get the recipe to make it yourself.

I purchased a Groupon for 4. We had 5 tastings and it included cheese and crackers and string cheese wrapped in meat. After all our tastings, we picked the 1 wine we liked the best and received a glass of that wine. That was all included in the Groupon. Erica was our server, and she was great. A shout out... More

We really enjoyed this winery on our tour. The wines were good, more table wines than "buy and hold" type, but fairly priced. The staff was very nice and we enjoyed the root beer well enough to bring a growler home for the kids. Lots of fun and charm here- definitely should see this one!

My husband and I visited Travese City and took the time to visit some of the local wineries. We ended up with 5 bottles to give as gifts and for ourselves. Yummy cherry wines.
